Before the snow and ice visits North Carolina, it’s important to protect your deck. This is the perfect time to take a few steps to protect your outdoor space. Here are a few tips from HGTV to help you out:

  • Give your deck a good cleaning. This includes removing any stray leaves from your deck, as well as cleaning it to get rid of dirt that’s built up over time. The moisture from ice and snow and trap grime into your deck’s boards and wreak havoc.
  • Once your deck is clean, it’s time to apply a water-repellent finish. This will help protect your deck from the damaging effects of the winter’s snow and ice.
  • If you have any outdoor furniture on your deck, it’s a good idea to bring it inside during the winter months. If you don’t have space to do so, protect your furniture with waterproof covers.

If you need help preparing your deck for the winter months, or if your deck needs a makeover once winter is over, give us a call at Housetop Roofing. We are here to help you with all of your roofing and home improvement needs in the Triangle area.
