Decks, fences, porches, and trellises: Why is it that wood elements always seem to be the highlight of a property’s outdoor area?
Inevitably, these beautiful surfaces need professional attention in order to be an ongoing benefit to your home. Here are a few signs that you’re overdue for a wood restoration service:
- Fading. If the wood surface looks bleached, it’s just in need cleaning, staining, and sealing to give it a much-needed facelift.
- Dark spots and streaks mean that your wood surface is susceptible to stains. This can come from almost anything: trees, pollen, leaky grills, and even rust can the the cause. A pressure washing service will remove the discoloration and seal out future issues from taking hold.
- Mold and mildew. This kind of buildup is ugly – but even worse, it’s a safety issue. Prevent slips and falls and protect your wood from rot with preventative wood restoration treatment.
While you’re at it, it’s also important to check for rotting. Sometimes this can be obvious, with the wood having a “soggy” look. Other times, it can be sneaky. Use a nail or a screwdriver and gently poke where the wood surface is nailed to the beam. If it’s soft, it’s rotting.
With wood restoration help from specialists, you can ensure that all of your property’s wood surfaces are ready to last for the long run. An added bonus? They’re look beautiful 24/7/365!
