Most decks that are older than 10 years and were constructed in pressure-treated lumber are probably at or near the end of their normal life span. However, you may only have a few problem areas that you would like to repair to extend the life of your current deck.
If a deck has been properly maintained and was correctly installed at the very beginning, there is a good likelihood that it can be salvaged. All deck repairs and proper maintenance can add years to almost any deck.
If you are thinking in terms of keeping your deck where there are structure issues or improper footings and you want to just install new deck boards without addressing these issues , please don't waste your money. To install new decking boards over top of an old structure that now has structure issues does not make sense.
