)-- UglyDeck.com announcing the best ways for homeowners to protect their decks from weather-related wear and tear so they can enjoy their decks for years to come. Having an outdoor deck is a great way to expand the living space of a home. However, decks are exposed to many more harsh conditions than a living room. The sun, mold and mildew, rain, snow and hail are just some of the elements a deck is exposed to.
One of the best and most basic ways to protect a deck is to regularly seal and maintain it. There are several options for sealing a deck: painting, solid or semi-transparent colored stains, or waterproof and transparent coatings. Each of these options have pros and cons – for instance, paint is an appealing option to many people for the way it looks, but it is one of the most difficult treatments to maintain. Solid color stain absorbs into the wood planks and can look like paint, but can wear unevenly. Semi-transparent stains and transparent coatings give a more natural wood look and wears evenly, but doesn’t but don’t hide stains or protect as well. It’s important for homeowners to weigh these options and decide which works best for their decks.
However, some people don’t want the hassle of routinely sealing and treating their wooden decks. Composite decking materials are a good option for homeowners who are looking for maintenance free decking materials or are planning on living in their home and using their deck for many years. Composite decking resists many of the hazards that wooden decks face, such as water damage, mildew and mold. They also only need sweeping and occasional cleaning – and don’t need to be treated, sealed or painted.
Whether homeowners have or prefer wood decks or composite, the deck builders at UglyDeck.com can help them with deck repairs, deck replacement or deck maintenance to ensure homeowners can enjoy their decks year after year.
