Installation & Maintenance

Can You Build a TimberTech Deck Over a Wood Deck?

September 4, 2016

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.

Key Factors to Consider

  • 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.

Check out our video for a how-to on replanking your deck. Before starting any project, we recommend you read through our decking installation and maintenance guide.
