Because your deck is exposed to the elements year round, it is important to maintain it properly. Proper scheduled deck maintenance will extend the life of your deck by several years. Without annual power washing and staining the lifespan of your deck is drastically shortened. But don’t worry, our skilled Evanston handymen have the experience needed to not only maintain or repair your deck, but they can also teardown an old deck and replace it with a beautiful new one.
DECK MAINTENANCE SERVICES
Power Washing – this is a high powered cleaning system that is used to deeply penetrate and clean the surface of your deck, patio, shed or other structure. It is a simple process but one that is necessary before applying a fresh coat of stain to your deck. Power washing should be performed annually and followed with staining if appropriate.
Deck Sanding – Sometimes it is necessary to sand the wood on your deck before stain can be applied. Sanding will smooth out any splintering or rough spots that may be in the wood. It is during this step that any raised nails will be replaced or hammered flat and any rotted or split wood will be replaced.
Deck Staining – This important task is crucial if you want to protect the surface of your deck. By regularly power washing and staining you can extend the life of your deck by years. Without the protection of regular power washing and staining your wood will quickly split and rot. The stain should be applied as soon as the wood is dry from power washing.
