Can You Build a TimberTech Deck Over a Wood Deck?
September 04 2016
Decking Installation & Maintenance

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 deckingReplanking 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.

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.
