Now that summer is in full swing, your deck and patio are probably getting lots of use with BBQs, nights around the fire pit, and other fun outdoor entertainment. If you are finding that your deck is looking a little worn, giving barefoot guests splinters, or perhaps just losing the fresh look the wood once had, then maybe now is the time to clean, restore, and/or refinish your valuable outdoor entertaining space. Jerry Enos Painting has years of experience evaluating decks and outdoor spaces for much needed repairs, power washing, and restoration to bring the area back to the new look it once had. Let’s take a look at how you can bring your deck back to life.
New England poses some serious climate problems for outdoor structures including deck and patio areas. Harshly cold and snowy winters give way to exceedingly warm and humid summers in our region. These extreme changes in temperature alone can cause wood to decay, splinter, and warp. Add to that the fact that we northerners tend to over-use salt and deicing products, thus causing further decay. Grime, dirt, and mildew can make your deck look old, worn, and tired faster than in other areas of the country.
- Power Washing – One of the first steps in making your deck or hardscape come back to life is to give it a good cleaning in order to wipe away the salt residue, dirt, mold, and grime that can build up over the fall, winter, and spring seasons. Power washing should be done by a professional who understands the angle and force that can be safely used on wood and stone surfaces.
- Repair and Restoration – After checking the supports, footings, slats, and railings, the professionals at Jerry Enos Painting can repair any rotting wood and ensure that the deck is safe for family and friends to enjoy.
- Deck Refinishing – After your deck is deemed secure, it is time to consider refinishing it to make it look refreshed and new again. Once we have determined the extent of the weathering and damage done to the deck, we use a multi-step process to strip and seal the wood so that it looks like new for years to come.
Bring back the life to your entertaining area, whether it is with a quick power wash for your deck or hardscapes, or a full restoration and refinishing for the deck itself. Call Jerry Enos Painting at at 978-546-6843, or visit our website to find out more.
