Hello Goose!

 

Typically, composite decking is installed with composite deck screws.

 

If you look under the deck, you will see the beams to which the flooring is screwed.

 

You can locate the screws across the top surface of the deck by following each of these beams.

 

On the surface, you will either see the screw heads or you will see small indentations on the surface if the screws were driven below the surface.

 

Use your drill with the composite screw bit and back out the screws until the deck boards come free.

 

Then use a pry-bar to remove the boards.

 

Replace by measuring, cutting, and re-screwing the new decking to the existing floor beams.
