On an annual basis, homeowners in America spend thousands of dollars during the process of building their dream deck as an addition to their homes for entertainment, shade, or to increase the overall value of their homes. The presentation of a deck that is well-maintained adds beauty, functionality and value to an individual’s home. This same principle applies to custom-built fences or property siding.
When left untreated, weather can immediately damage unprotected wood. The following natural forces are especially harmful: dew, rain and snow. The moisture from these elements absorb into the wood, causing it to expand and loose strength. Once dried and heated by the sun, the wood shrinks.
The constant cycle of swelling and shrinking causes wood to become damaged by graying, fading, cracking, warping, etc. Once the wood is irreparable, it can become a costly fix and actually decrease the value of your property and become potentially dangerous. Make today the day you resolve to protect your deck.
Mold & mildew are a major problem to the exterior of your house, but it also affects the accessories of your home such as deck, walkways, patios, gazebos, foundations, ramps, sidewalks & sheds etc.
These items are also exposed to rain and sun so over time the mold and mildew will build up, making a harsh appearance.
