The weather here in Frederick, Maryland is both a blessing and a curse. While it is nice to experience all four seasons, it can wreak havoc on your home, most notably wood decks. Over the years, your deck takes a beating between the rain, wind, snow, sleet, and general foot traffic your deck is exposed. So it is important to do your part to ensure your deck is well-protected.
Deck Maintenance Checklist
- Sweep: Remove any standing debris from your deck. Pay attention to where your deck boards cross the joists. Debris tends to get trapped in these crevices.
- Power Washing: Using a power washing (and being very careful as to not damage your deck), slowly wash your boards, removing caked on dirt.
- Visual Inspection: Conduct a visual inspection of your deck, looking for signs of wood rot and other such damage.
- Repairs: As the old saying goes, a stitch in time saves nine. The same holds true for your deck. Making small repairs now can prevent these tiny issues from becoming large, costly issues.
- Staining and Waterproofing: Stain not only helps improve the look of your deck, but it also helps protect it from the elements, most notably moisture.
For low maintenance (vinyl) decks, all you will really need to do are steps one and two. The problem: you just don’t have the time or energy. The solution: Professional Deck Maintenance.
