Winter may be in full swing in many parts of the country, but spring is around the corner. This means it’s time to prepare for the incoming warmer weather. If you’d like to paint or stain your deck this season, you’ll need to make sure it’s in good condition first. Prior to making any cosmetic adjustments to your deck, take a closer look at its surface, as well as underneath and between planks. If you find split or rotting wood, you’ll need to replace those affected. After these planks have been replaced, check for any exposed nails or screws. These can be pried out with a hammer and replaced. Finally, thoroughly clean the surface of your deck before sealing and staining it. For more home tips, contact us today.
A real estate inspection or home inspection is not an appraisal or a check for compliance with building codes; it’s also not an evaluation of environmental hazards. See the NYS Standards of Practice for more information on the limitations of a home inspection.
