Preparing Your Deck For Summer

architects philadelphiaWith summer now officially started, it’s the absolute peak season of outdoor decks in Philadelphia, which means that modular deck that has been untouched for 9 months is quickly anticipating its usage. Before you prepare for those outdoor barbecues, there are a few things to consider

Make sure to have the deck fixed.

After years of the kids running all over the pressure treated woods, the neighbors spilling beer after neighborhood barbecues, and annual weather damage, the deck has rotted. Many outdated deck designs use cheaper materials that cannot withstand the harshness of normal deck use. To check the deck’s foundation, make sure you look for rotting underneath the deck to determine whether a replacement is feasible or if fixing/restaining is the better choice. If you’re unsure, have DollarDeck come out for a free estimate to help you choose. Fortunately, either is an easy fix that will leave your deck looking good as new before your Fourth of July festivities.

Add pallet bars.

While obviously not a necessity, pallet bars will add a whole new modern aspect to your modular deck that your neighbors will eye with jealousy.
