Your deck may be outdoors but you can still protect it from the challenges that winter brings for any home. Prevent winter damage from taking over your deck with these tips from leading exterior remodeling contractor, Timberland Exteriors.
Thoroughly Clean Up
Right at the start of winter or even a while before it, do a thorough clean-up of your deck and get rid of as much dirt as you can. This process will not only leave you with a clean area but will also allow you to inspect for any damage your deck may have. You can then schedule the corresponding repair work it might need, as well as, have your deck refinished, if necessary.
A good residential roofing service provider will always endorse the importance of trimming your trees before winter starts. Doing so will reduce the possibility of roofing damage caused by fallen branches, particularly during severe weather. The same practice of tree-trimming will provide as much safety for your deck too.
Get Rid of Moisture
Signs of moisture retention such as cracking, peeling, and the presence of mold growth will spell trouble for your deck as it would for the rest of your home. Start the winter right by getting rid of such issues. If you’re looking to rebuild your deck before the colder months arrive, consider products like TimberTech, by Timberland Exteriors, which comes with 25-year protection against stains and fading.
Arrange for a snow management service provider to help you keep your deck dry and safe from heavy snowfall throughout the winter. Professionals will know what type of equipment to use to avoid damaging your deck in the process of clearing it. They will also know the best ways to properly get rid of ice as it might cause moisture damage if it is left unattended.
