Worn Out Seams And Plugs

Worn Out Seams And Plugs

If seams are worn enough to the point where caulkingTeak-Seams-and-Plugs is gone and many screw heads are exposed you have to figure how much of actual teak is left. If the deck was originally 1/2 inches thick with 1/4 inch deep groove for caulk, the remaining teak is only 1/4 inches thick and, if seams have been leaking for longer time, you should consider replacing your decking. If teak decking was installed over cored sub-deck, you should take action as soon as possible, because water most likely is ruining the subdeck and time just makes repairing more expensive.

*Above tips and guidelines are result of years of experience and are found to be helpful and work in many cases. However, every deck is different and by no means we guarantee the results on your deck,so please use your local professional carpenter if you don’t feel comfortable working on your own.
