Just because you check the weather app in the morning, doesn’t mean you know exactly what it is going to do in the evening. That’s the weather in Kansas City for you. Winters here can be fairly hard to predict. A couple years ago it seemed to snow every Wednesday for two months. And this past year, we had some record setting cold stretches and lots of wet days.
It takes a bit to shake off the winter so it’s no wonder why spring is such a welcomed season. But before you move full speed in to spring, it’s good to check if winter left any wear and tear behind. Winters can be hard on the exterior of your home, in particular your deck. The snow combined with the cold, especially for long stretches, can create an environment for wood damage and rotting.
Besides the hard earned calluses on your hands, you have invested a lot of resources and time in your deck. And you deserve to enjoy it for the long haul. And there’s nothing better than the taste of that first grilled burger out on the deck after a long winter. Spring is go time for getting your deck ready. Here are few ways to get the most out of all you’ve put in to your deck.
Material replacement and repairs
The most common deck issue that comes up after the winter is damage to the infrastructure and decking materials, specifically, wood rotting and boards splitting. This is not only an issue of aesthetics but also a safety concern. It is important to fully inspect your deck for any breakdown and make the necessary repairs as soon as you can. We will supply all the lumber, decking hardware and supplies you will need.
Revive by re-staining
Once the weather turns for the better, it is a perfect time for bringing your deck back to life. It is recommended you stain the deck every few years to help preserve and protect it from the elements. Not sure of the best deck stain to use for your boards? Let our experience and pride in providing the best customer service benefit you.
