Now that the weather is warmer, people are spending more and more time outside. Weekend barbeques, coffee in the morning, or afternoons reading are all great ways to spend time outside on your deck. But, if your deck is in need of repair, it can lessen your enjoyment or cause you to avoid going outside at all. Fortunately, there is help available if you want to restore your deck to its former glory and start enjoying it again. A painting and deck expert can repair damaged planks, remove years of dirt and grime, and re-stain your deck so it looks as good as new.
Repair damaged planks
Individual planks on your deck can get damaged over time. You may have planks that are warped, splintered, or broken. If you have railing or steps on your deck those areas are also susceptible to becoming damaged. Before you can restore your deck to its former glory you must deal with any planks that are seriously damaged. In some situations, a paint and deck pro will be able to patch damaged planks. In other situations, some planks will need to be completely replaced because the damage is too severe. Hiring a pro will ensure that you get the planks repaired properly so you can safely enjoy your deck once again.
Remove years of dirt and grime
Getting your deck power washed by a pro can make a huge difference in how it looks. Sometimes, power washing is enough to bring a deck back to its former glory. If your deck is covered in dirt, grime, and remnants of being used over the years, start the process of restoration with power washing. Removing the buildup of dirt and grime can breathe new life into your deck and get it ready for the next step in the process – staining or painting.
Re-stain or paint your deck
Elements such as sun, wind, rain, and time can cause the stain or paint on your deck to fade and peel. The final step in restoring your deck to its former glory is to re-stain or paint it if it is showing signs of wear. In order to get a high-quality stain or paint job you need to be sure and prep your deck by repairing damaged areas and removing dirt, grime, and peeling paint. A paint and desk restoration pro can handle each element of this process for you.
Restoring your deck to its formal glory almost always involves multiple steps. A paint and deck restoration pro – like those at D&D Painting – have the tools, experience, and expertise to help you with this project. Bringing in a pro to help with your deck restoration is the quickest way to get outside and start enjoying your deck once again.
