As the weather warms, you’ll be inclined to spend more time outdoors. However, you cannot maximize your time outside if your deck is in bad condition.
Make the most of your outdoor living space this spring and summer by following these tips from your commercial roofing and outdoor living contractor, Wilson Roofing:
1. Clean It Up
Your deck has taken a beating over the past year from rain showers, cold temperatures, strong winds and other bad weather. There are a lot of things you can do to spruce up a deck but none are more important than cleaning it. Typically, mopping the surface with some water and soap is sufficient, but if your deck needs more serious attention, schedule a visit from a pressure-washing expert.
2. Maintenance Is Key
The key in ensuring your deck’s longevity is regular maintenance. Don’t wait for problems to appear; stay ahead of damage by being proactive about addressing minor issues such as loose boards, exposed nails, splinters and rotting. Refinishing the wood will also help restore your deck to its former glory. Ask a decking and roofing services professional for help with this.
3. Make It Lively
There’s nothing wrong with experimenting with pops of colors and fun decorations. Invest in outdoor furniture with bold patterns to give the area character. In addition, you can hang lights on overhanging trees to give the space whimsical charm, setting the perfect mood for entertaining family and friends over cocktail hour or a barbecue.
