A Deck is an Amazing Addition to Any Home
Whether you enjoy barbecuing, playing dominos, suntanning, or simply sitting in a comfortable rocking chair with a cold glass of ice tea and a good book, a deck is a great addition to any home. Decks also add to your home’s overall charm and value by extending your space at the fraction of the price of a porch, a sunroom, or additional interior room. However, the same open nature of a deck that provides its appeal also exposes it to the harmful impacts of the environment. If not addressed appropriately, this exposure can cause serious damage over time. Have no fear. Here at Curb Appeal Painting, our deck experts will make sure your deck gets the attention it deserves to ensure its longevity and your savings.
How to Prevent or Eliminate Damages Caused by Exposure
Your deck and its additional features (such as railings and benches) are directly exposed to the elements. In beautiful Cleveland, this means baking in the sun, soaking up the rain, and shivering under a blanket of snow or freezing rain. Each of these conditions can have dramatically different negative effects on your deck. Sun exposure and ultraviolet rays can cause cracking, splintering, and surface level deterioration. Fluctuations in temperature also cause your decking material to expand and contract. Over time, this loosens your decking materials and can cause cupping and pliancy (loss of rigidity). Finally, rain or melting snow, if not drained appropriately, can cause rotting, mold, and mildew. This is particularly a problem in areas in which water can easily pool, such as under eaves.
