Your deck is a great outdoor space that allows you to entertain family and friends while enjoying the beauty of nature. Unfortunately, with its constant exposure to the elements, decks can experience some real wear and tear over the years. That’s why it’s important to protect your deck and to upgrade it when necessary.

In order to protect your deck from the elements, you should both stain and seal your deck. Staining your deck helps to protect the wood from UV damage, and sealing your deck helps to protect it from water damage. You should stain and seal your deck about once a year. Be sure to repair any damage and clean your deck thoroughly before doing so. Outdoor umbrellas and rugs can also help protect your deck’s exposure to the elements.

So, when is it time to replace your deck boards? Sometimes, just one or two boards need to be changed. So, if you notice damage to a few of the boards, you can replace those individually. However, if you notice more significant damage to a large portion of the deck, whether it’s from wood rot, storm damage, or age (decks last about 15-25 years), then it’s a good idea to have a professional come to check it out.
