DeShayes Dream Courts specializes in consulting, designing, repairing, and constructing professional installed Tennis Courts in NJ, PA, and DE. Tennis courts are typically an amenity associated with estates and larger properties.
Tennis is considered a lifetime sport that is enjoyed by children and adults of all ages. Having your own tennis court eliminates the drive time and wait or schedule time of playing on both club & public courts. In addition to standard asphalt tennis courts, there are several choices for more forgiving surfaces. A Cushioned surface where rubber is added to the court coasting like at the U.S. Open helps reduce the strain on joint, tendons, and bones. Clay, turf, and sport tile tennis courts all have the same benefits. It is best to use a contractor that is familiar with & consults on all types of tennis courts so you can choose the surface you are most comfortable with and enjoy playing on the most.
DeShayes Dream Courts Brings Poorly Maintained Tennis Court Back to Life
Most asphalt tennis courts have life expectancies of 10 to 15 years, although DeShayes has seen some that last up to 20 years and others that have only lasted a few years before cracking and other issues arise. The latter is typically due to poor base preparation, insufficient materials, and deficient installation practices. Above is a tennis court that was 20 years old and was poorly maintained.
This tennis court required a complete makeover. Portions of the loose delaminating surface coating had to be scraped off and the cracks had to be cleaned, filled, and taped. The puddles and depressions had to be filled, the entire surface recoated with 4 new coatings, and lines had to be re-painted. This is a meticulous process that takes about two weeks and when done properly yields spectacular results, while also saving you the over $100,000 it may cost to have your existing court removed and replaced.
There are many different tennis court repair systems with different costs and lengths of guarantee, Please call DeShayes Dream Courts to evaluate your court’s existing conditions and discuss repair options.
