I'm Ready to Have a Summer Party. How Do I Get My Deck Ready?

A deck can make all the difference in the overall impression your summer party makes. With a fresh stain or deck repair from the professionals at Mr. Handyman, this party will be one for the ages.

Fixing the deck

All decks need some new boards once in a while to keep them looking their best. After a few years of exposure to the elements, these boards will start to become prone to water damage and need replacing. Look for severe splintering in the wood or places where it seems extra soft; test the wood with a screwdriver to see how soft it is. Choosing pressure-treated lumber should also help to prevent damage in the future.

Deck staining

This is essential for extended protection of the wood in your deck. If you pick a high-quality deck stain/sealant, it can cut down on the number of times you need to stain the deck. On average, most decks need a new coat every 1-2 years. Don’t have time to do the staining but don’t want extensive deck repair later? Call Mr. Handyman for help. They can also give it a proper pressure wash that won’t damage the boards.

Don’t forget the decorations

Once the deck is ready, it’s time to get the party plans set. Make sure you have plenty of seating for all the expected guests, with a few extra spaces just in case. Make sure you pick a summer theme, then sit back and enjoy.
