Highlands NC Homes, Have You Checked the Deck Lately
Owners of Highlands NC homes, have you checked the deck lately? Outdoor living spaces are treasured in our mountain area and taking care of them is essential. And, while we are waiting for summer to get into high gear, there is no time like the present to take care of the deck. After all, the deck is one of the greatest spots for any Highlands NC home, whether for a cup of coffee in the morning or a cocktail party in the afternoon.
Check the deck annually
An annual check of the deck is a great idea. Check the railings to ensure that they are secure and safe. Likewise, replace deck screws that may have loosened or popped out. It is also a great idea to make sure decking boards are solid and have not rotted. Additionally, wood decking should be stained and sealed annually for optimum care. Weather and use can take its toll!
Cleaning a deck
The cleaner the deck is the easier it is to check its condition. Power washing the deck is a great spring chore. This will not only clean your deck but prepared it for staining and sealing. Taking care of wood decking will preserve it. Of course, if your decking is a composite material then cleaning will have it looking as good as new! Taking care of your Highlands NC home means taking care of your investment.
