Is your deck looking dull and worn out? Decks and patios don’t exactly age well because, unfortunately, constant foot traffic results in dirt, residue and the usual wear-and-tear. Updating or replacing your deck is the perfect way to keep your backyard fresh and up-to-date. Sound overwhelming? Here are a few ideas from the home renovation experts at ARC Remodel that are sure to bring your deck back to life:


Start From Scratch

Depending on how old your deck is, it might be time to start from scratch. Redoing your deck is a cost-effective add-on to increase the value of your home and add visual appeal. Total renovation that involves removing the current flooring and laying new wood is a project you should leave up to the experts. We suggest starting on the project in winter or spring so you can enjoy your beautiful new deck or patio all summer long. Call ARC Remodel, the Jacksonville home renovation experts, when you’re ready for a deck revamp.


Stain It

If total renovation isn’t necessary for your deck or patio, start with some minor upgrades such as staining. Before restaining, it’s important to ensure your foundation is solid. This is a must before adding anything new to your deck. Set a weekend aside each year to clean and refresh your deck flooring so foot traffic and bad weather don’t cause it to deteriorate. Unfortunately, cosmetic changes just won’t cut it if you’re deck is in an unrecoverable state. If you’re unsure if your deck is in need of total renovation or minor upgrades, give our team at ARC Remodel a call.


Wire for Sound

If your deck isn’t in bad shape but you’re looking for something to spice up your outdoor space, consider installing a sound system! An outdoor weatherproof sound system is the perfect addition to any deck or patio. Outdoor speakers are the perfect addition to any pool party, BBQ or a backyard get-together with your friends. A sound system is an easy way to turn your house into the party house.



Maybe your deck is in perfect shape but you’re getting bored with the same old decor. You know what that means…it’s time to redecorate and refurnish! Give your backyard a fresh vibe by rearranging your current furniture or shopping for new wall art or outdoor furniture. You’re deck will feel brand new and you’ll enjoy it for years to come.


After ten years, you’ll be ready to change up your outdoor vibe and this is the perfect opportunity to upgrade. Deck and patio upgrades are common renovations for homeowners.
