Prepare Your Home’s Deck For Winter

28 Oct2015

Mild fall weather will be over before we know it in the Metropolitan area and now is the time to prepare your home for when the temperatures dip and snow begins to fall. One exterior home service that should be at the top of your to-do list is deck maintenance.

Cleaning your deck is absolutely vital after the warm seasons. Chances are your deck has experienced a lot of foot traffic from family barbeques and daily outdoor activity, resulting in accumulations of dirt, rust, and mildew. These stains are tough to remove and require a deep cleaning using pressure cleaning by professionals.

Sealing your deck after the cleaning is complete is another way to keep your deck looking beautiful longer. UV rays, rain, snow, sleet, and cold temperatures can all destroy your deck’s surface, leaving it appearing dull, stained, and have a grey looking appearance.Here at KEVCO we trust Wolmans commercial grade products. These products are offered in cedar, redwood, and natural colors, allowing you to choose a look to match your home. It’s also a commercial product, meaning you won’t be able to find anything comparable at your local hardware store.

You better act fast! When temperatures drop below 50 degrees, giving your deck the cleaning it needs will no longer be an option. Any sealer that is used will NOT adhere to the deck surface properly if applied when temps are under 50 degrees.Not only will maintaining your deck increase the value of your home, but it will provide years of life and family fun for your deck.

If you are a busy homeowner that cares about the exterior of your home and wants worry-free professional home services, KEVCO is the company for you.
