What Our Customers are Saying:

We have a GORGEOUS new deck…and it’s even safe to walk upon without fear of falling through it! The crew was truly remarkable to work under such challenging conditions and we had on Wednesday. Luddly commented that your team works though all kinds of weather…just like the U.S. Postal Service.

Don't Slip on your Deck!

With the rainy season upon us, your deck can become slippery and present a risk for you and your family. Oftentimes, the natural grain of the wood prevents this, providing traction. But neglecting your deck by letting mold, mildew or moss grow can create a problem, especially since we live in an already moist climate.

Generally, the percentage of inorganic material of a composite deck lessens the chance that moss or mildew could grow, but whether your deck is wooden or composite, it’s always important to keep it clean.

To clean mildew from a wooden deck, wait for a dry day and scrub the area with a diluted vinegar mixture. If you need to clean your composite deck, start with warm water, and if that doesn’t do the trick, use a gentle soap like Dawn or even OxiClean laundry booster.

Maintenance is key! Getting on an upkeep schedule will make it easier for you in the long run.
