As we mentioned last week, fall is the perfect time to make those deck repairs you have been meaning to get to for the last few weeks, months, or even years. Winter is right around the corner, which may not seem like a big deal…until it snows. Remember, your deck is designed to hold heavy loads for a short period of time, not a ton of snow for hours, days, or even weeks. Yikes! The average lifespan of a pressure treated wood deck is somewhere between 10 to 15 years if you keep up regular maintenance and repairs. So have you kept up with maintenance and repairs?

Benefits of Fall Deck Repair
Without regular maintenance, timely repairs, and sealing and staining, your wood deck will not last. Period. End of story. This is why it is so important to be proactive and address small issues as they arise. As they say, a stitch in time saves nine. The same holds true for deck maintenance. A little preventive maintenance and timely repairs could save you a lot of heartache and add years of use and enjoyment to your current deck. That’s what we like to call a win-win!
