Understanding
Deck Installation

Decks are distinctive outdoor living spaces that incorporate the beauty of nature, add value to your property, and improve your quality of life. Wooden decks, however, tend to take a beating from various elements, including foot track, dirt, rain, and the sun. In addition, the harsh effects of rough weather conditions can oxidize the horizontal surfaces of the deck and may also cause the deck’s coating to fail, resulting in a gray-colored appearance.

Why Do You Need

Deck Maintenance?

Even when your deck is not used on a regular basis, it is still vulnerable to damaging hazards, e.g. UV rays, rain, and snow. These elements can lead to premature aging and allow moisture pockets to form on your deck. The latter creates ideal conditions for termites and wood-destroying mold. In addition, excessive moisture can also cause the deck’s nails and screws to rust as well. Ignoring these problems can cause homeowners to face hefty refurbishing bills in the near future.

How LA Decks
Can Help

At LA Decks, our team will first conduct a visual inspection to get a general sense of your deck’s condition. From there, we will determine the best way to wash your deck’s surface and remove contaminants that have settled in the grain. If your deck has severe scratches, stains, or signs of weathering, we may facilitate light spot sanding services.

Our team will then finish the job by applying suitable wood brighteners and coatings to prevent and eliminate algae and mold, promote the decking surface’s natural color, and enhance the durability of the deck’s wooden materials.

You will be pleased to know that most deck maintenance jobs can be completed within a day.
