If you own or manage a property with wood structures, at some point they’re going to need to be repaired. These repair bills can add up quickly, especially if the damage goes untreated over- time. For example, an average sized deck can cost anywhere between $700-$3,000 to repair some moderate damage. Now that might seem like a hefty sum, but when compared to the cost of a full deck replacement, which can easily jump to $10k-$20k or more; it doesn’t seem so terrible.
It’s important to understand that wood damage tends to spread if left unattended, so it’s crucial to inspect the wood often and repair as soon as damage is revealed. Treating and maintaining your deck properly can increase the longevity of your deck by decades as well. For example, a deck built with cedar wood can last up to about 40 years if properly maintained. On the other hand, that same deck left poorly maintained may need to be replaced after only 10-15 years.
Doing some simple math projections: If you spend $10k to have your deck installed, that’s roughly $670-$1,000 a year (over 10 15-year period) for a poorly maintained deck. Now, if you pay $10k plus a few maintenance repairs of even $3k on the higher end, for a total of $16k… That comes out to roughly $400 a year (over 40 years).
It really doesn’t hurt or cost a thing to pick up the phone and request to have your properties inspected by experienced termite professionals; so why risk ignoring such a common and potentially expensive issue?
