Step 1: Keep your Waterproofed Deck Clean and Clutter-free

As the year goes by, a deck can sometimes be a dumping ground for various household items, as well as, the natural build-up of dirt and other natural muck. These mundane additions throughout the year can seriously weaken even the strongest of deck coatings. Periodically cleaning clutter and grime will make sure your coating goes the distance.

Step 2: Routine Professional Inspections

You probably do not have the know-how nor the professional tools to make sure your deck is as healthy as it should be. Be prepared and catch problems by having a professional come out and inspect your deck. It is the best way to avoid unnecessary headaches and protect your wallet as well. This brings us to our next step.

Step 3: Sealant Inspection and Reapplication

Did you know that a waterproof top coat sealant needs to be renewed every 2-3 years or so? Considering this, it is important to have a professional come out and check your sealant to confirm that it is, in fact, protecting your deck as it should. Reapplying of a sealant is a lot cheaper than repairing the damage caused by a worn-out area. Refreshing it will keep your deck protected.
