Your deck or patio is an outdoor extension of your home. But being exposed to nature, it needs regular maintenance and repairs to keep it a safe, pleasant place for entertaining guests. Your local Handyman Service has professional carpenters, masons, tile setters and painters who are experienced in repairing and maintaining patios and decks in your area, so your deck or patio is as nice as the inside of your home-and just as comfortable.
Every three or four years, deck owners re-stain and seal their decks to protect the wood from the moisture that otherwise leads to an expensive reconstruction project. Next to power washing, staining is also the best, fastest way to improve the look of your deck. Unfortunately, it’s easy for homeowners to damage their decks with pressure washers, to stain over already-rotted wood, and to apply the stain before a deck is sufficiently dry.
