Highlands NC Homes, Time to Check the Deck

Lynn Kimball, Highlands NC real estate

It is the time of year to check the deck for owners of Highlands NC homes. Everyone loves spending time outside and outdoor living spaces are treasured. Maintaining your deck ensures safety and protects your investment at the same time. If your Highlands NC home has a deck it is important to make sure its condition is checked annually.

Power washing is a great start for seasonal deck maintenance. Cleaning your deck will reveal whether your deck is ready for a fresh stain, something that is typically completed annually. If staining is necessary make sure you choose one that doubles as a sealer. Taking care of wood will preserve it for years to come. Of course, you may have decking that is made up of composite material. If this is the case then a simple cleaning will have the deck looking great.

Spring is a great time of year to check decking for loose nails. Additionally, you should always check that a deck is securely attached to a Highlands NC home. Tightening screws may be a necessity! If you are unsure of these tasks you can always hire a professional to do the inspection for you. Deck maintenance can easily be a do-it-yourself project or one that involves a contractor.
