Improving Your Deck

Are the boards on your patio deck too close together? If so, they may cause deck rot. When the deck boards are too close together, water won't drain properly and air does not circulate. Your deck boards stay wet causing rot and that can lead to structural failure/woodrat. We can fix your decks by widening the gap between your deck boards.  Take action today with our deck repair services.


Deck Repair

A simple remedy to widening your deck board problem is now here. You can easily widen the gap between deck boards to allow water to drain by cutting along the sides of the deck boards. The Saw Guide is the latest innovation from Lounsbury Products LLC of Bainbridge Island, Washington, and is part of our Deck Protector product line. The Saw Guide will widen the gaps between your deck boards, making quick work of cleaning debris from the spaces between planks. The Saw Guide is also perfect for removing old paint and finish between deck boards before refinishing your deck.

How It Works

The Saw Guide easily attaches to any circular saw (also known as a skill saw). Get professional results with this innovative device that fits all right and left hand circular saws. The Saw Guide makes it easy to make a precise, even cut down the length of the deck board.

After adjusting the blade depth so it won't damage the floor joists below, lower the saw blade in between the decking and make sure the front and back guide fins are in the groove. Run the saw forward lightly touching one side, then check for clearance. If the space is still too narrow, make a second pass on the other side. You may have to make several passes using the same process for desired spacing. The Saw Guide makes quick work cleaning out dirt, leaves, and pine needles. It easily straightens the ends of mismatched deck boards too!
