Winter is Coming

Posted on Posted in Waterproofing

Now that colder weather is expected, every homeowner should make sure that the deck is prepared for the change in seasons.

Clean your deck from accumulated dirt, barbecue stains, rust, mold, and mildew using a garden hose, soft brush, and a deck cleaner. You may be tempted to use a power washer to make cleaning easier but the high pressure can damage the wood. Do a deck check and make sure that any repairs necessary are done before the winter months. If the finish has deteriorated, you many want to remove and reapply to keep your deck looking great. Lastly, seal your deck or patio with water repellant. This way, it will be able to withstand all of the moisture it will endure throughout the winter months and avoid cracked and warped wood surface.
