Deck Inspections, Cleaning, Sealing, and Restoration

Along with enjoying outdoor lounging and BBQs, decks often enhance the overvalued value and beauty of the home. Decks also require regular inspection, cleaning, sealing, and maintenance.

Deck Inspection

At least twice a year, deck owners are advised to carefully inspect their deck, including handrails and steps. They should look for any stress signs, loose, broken, rotting, cracking, or curling areas. It’s important to replace damaged boards to prevent injuries or further deck damage. Also, carefully look for any missing hardware (nails, screws, or bolts) and fix any identified issues. Finally, using a flashlight, check for beneath the deck, to ensure insects or animals aren’t causing any damage to the structural supports.
