With the summer months just around the corner, the new report has been written to help people inspect and repair their decks after the harsh winter months.
Whether it be a patio or rooftop area, outdoor decks are useful and enjoyable spaces that can add significant value to a home. However, a poorly maintained deck can become an eyesore or even dangerous to users. Over time, weather conditions can crack or warp the timber, and the deck can become infested with moss or dry rot.
The new report from Deck Builder Baltimore provides 3 simple steps that deck owners can take to prevent damage and keep the deck functional.
The report advises that people should regularly inspect their decks. Things to look for include protruding nails or fittings, cracked or warped boards, fungal or other growths, and debris.
Once problems have been identified, the report explains how to go about rectifying them. Cracked decking can fall into 3 categories. Minor cracks will indicate that the deck needs to be re-stained, while larger cracks may need a roll-on resurface or replacement of boards.
Mold, mildew and other growths do not need to be scrubbed, and the new report suggests spray-on solutions that are readily available on the market.
In order to keep decks in optimal condition, Deck Builder Baltimore suggests that preventative maintenance is key. The report recommends that decks be stained every couple of years to protect wood from the elements and extend its lifespan.
Dry rot develops when moisture is allowed to penetrate the wood, so the company recommends that stains with a commercial sealant are used. In addition, the report advises homeowners to place a layer of plastic on the ground below the deck to assist with keeping moisture away.
