Can you Build a TimberTech Deck over a Wood Deck?
TimberTech decks cannot be installed directly on existing wood planks, but we do have other options. If your deck is in desperate need of a makeover, but you don’t want to start from scratch – you can replank your deck with TimberTech capped wood composite decking. Replanking is when you remove the old deck surface planks, and install TimberTech over the substructure.
First, there are a few key factors you need to look into. Make sure that the substructure is code-compliant and can hold the extra weight of a TimberTech capped composite deck. You will also want to verify that water is draining correctly. We recommend talking with a contractor before beginning a replanking project.
