It’s easy to let household maintenance go for too long. Though the changes are gradual, the wear and tear on your deck make a big difference! We’ll examine why decks need refinishing plus three signs that it’s time. Since Athens is such a humid place with lots of rain depending on the time of year, homeowners definitely want to make sure to stay on top of deck maintenance to keep their outdoor spaces safe and beautiful.
Why Your Deck Needs to be Refinished
Think about how much action your deck gets: summertime cookouts, kids running and jumping, dogs chasing their tails, birds dropping “gifts” from above, the list goes on. Humans and creatures definitely impact your deck’s surface. Rain, sun, ice, and other weather patterns also slowly erode your deck’s protective barrier.
1. Your Deck Looks Worn Out
It’s a good idea to have a professional inspect your deck if it just looks like it needs some love. A newly refinished deck should look bright and shiny, just like you want it!
2. Your Deck Doesn’t Repel Water
The whole point of staining or sealing your deck is so that it’s protected from the elements. If it is absorbing rather than repelling water, it’s likely time to refinish your deck.
3. Your Deck is Deteriorating
If the boards of your deck are starting to splinter or even rot, it’s a good idea to refinish your deck before it becomes a more major issue.
