Your deck sees a lot of activity during the summer, but once the weather gets colder, you’ll find yourself spending more time inside by the fire. While you may not use your deck very often during the fall, you should still take care of it so it remains nice for next year. Gutierrez Pool Plastering, New Jersey's deck installation specialists, want to keep your deck looking good all year round by providing some helpful maintenance tips.
Practice the following preventive measures to keep your deck in great shape this season:
- Trim Bushes and Trees: Any foliage in your backyard should be at least 12 inches from your deck. This will slow the rotting of the wood and help prevent moss and mold from forming.
- Keep Corners Clear: If leaves, dirt, or any other types of debris piles up in the corners of your deck, they can cause damage to the surface. Try to keep your deck clear throughout the colder months.
- Move Your Furniture: In order to avoid discoloration, you should occasionally move around chairs, plants, and tables. You may even want to store them away in your shed or garage until the weather gets warmer.
When you take care for your deck throughout the year, you'll reap the benefits of much use during the warmer months. For deck installation or deck removal services in New Jersey, contact Gutierrez Pool Plastering. Visit the company online or call (908) 756-7585 for more information.
