These are the stairs we had before. They had been painted several times before.
Replacing An Old Deck
Our covered porch was in need of a watertight decking because the crawl space was directly under the deck surface. We found a product from Deckorators that fit the bill.
Installation took several weekends and a week of vacation time, but the result was better than expected!
The deck boards were in such bad shape and warped, we had to keep an old outdoor rug on them.
My husband removed the rails first.
After that, the decking was removed. Notice, you can see the crawl space below. We needed a watertight decking material to keep the rain from getting into the crawl space.
We used Deckorators composite decking with a flange between the boards.
It was so nice to get to this point and have the decking done! The stairs were next.
Once the stairs were done, cedar rails with metal balusters were added to the porch deck and stairs.
Stairs and railings are finished. We plan to add caps to the posts.
