Owners of Highlands NC homes have plenty of spring chores and one should include checking the deck. A deck is a coveted amenity for any Highlands home and keeping it in good condition is important. Maintaining it will not only keep the deck safe but also keep it looking its best. Highlands NC real estate is an investment and taking care of this investment is important.

Cleaning is a great first step

Spring is a great time to power wash the exterior of a house and this includes the decks and patios. Getting rid of dirt, debris, dust, and cobwebs will reveal the condition of a deck. This includes missing deck screws, drying or rotting planks, and the condition of the deck railings. Wood decking is typically stained or treated annually and cleaning it will reveal whether this is a necessary task or not. Additionally, composite material is low maintenance but cleaning it will have it looking its best.

Safety matters

Chances are everyone in a home enjoys spending time on the deck. There may even be a few parties on the deck. As a result, safety should be top of mind. Having a contractor check the deck’s attachment is a good idea, as is replacing rotten planks if necessary. While some screws may simply need tightening others that have popped up may require a closer look.
