Deck Maintenance 101: Three Ways To Protect Your Deck This Fall

At Eastern Shore Porch & Patio, we understand the value and importance of outdoor living spaces. These areas provide us with additional living space and enhance our everyday living. Porches and patios are often common outdoor spaces. Outdoor kitchens have also gained notable popularity as an alternative for entertaining and dining. However, a deck is a space that can be used all year, especially if you live in an area with mild winters. Listed below are a few deck maintenance tips.

Eastern Shore Porch Patio Deck Maintenance

Keeping your composite deck pristine requires a bit of simple maintenance.

Survey The Premises 

The first rule of thumb is to inspect your deck thoroughly. This is a critical step in deck maintenance if you have a wooden deck. Your deck is, without question, durable and sturdy, but it can still be susceptible to damage. Wood is more prone to rotting and decay, so you should be sure to check parts like joints, posts, ledgers, and deck boards. 

Ensure That All Your Parts Are Secure

As a deck owner, you should make sure that you regularly check the integrity of parts like your nails, screws, or anchors. Checking fastenings is also essential as you can help prevent all of your railings, and your overall deck isn’t unstable.  

Provide Sealant Protection

Using sealant is a vital step in the deck maintenance process. It doesn’t matter if It is relatively new or you’ve owned it for years. If you don’t seal your deck, it will deteriorate at an even more rapid pace. Keep in mind that it should be dry before you seal your deck. You should also be sure to make sure that your deck is spic and span.
