Weatherproofing Your Deck for Spring Showers in Pennsylvania

Do you live in Pennsylvania? Do you have an older deck that is struggling to handle the Spring weather? Whether you live in Pennsylvania, or any of the other areas we service, we are here to help! With Spring here, and all the flowers blooming, we are also experiencing quite a few Spring showers. While these rain falls can help your garden, they can also pose a threat to your deck if it is not weatherproofed properly. This is the case for many older decks. If you find that your deck is on the older side and not doing well with the rain, you should call a professional immediately to prevent further damage. At C3 American Exteriors, we have the resources to help keep your deck in the best possible shape! In this blog, we will look into weatherproofing solutions, and what your deck might need in order to stay strong in the rain. 

Does your deck have good sealant? Your deck might require new sealant if it is older. Sealers create a protective layer that acts as a barrier on the surface of the wood. This adds to the longevity of your deck and helps to keep rain water from seeping into the woord. Some seealers even have a tint to add some color and keep your deck looking fresh.

It is also essential to have proper drainage for your deck. This ensure that water cannot pool on top of your deck. Drainage systems can range from gutters to slope and pitch adjustment to under deck drainage systems. If your deck does not have proper drainage, it is important to call a professional so that you can fix that.

These are just some of the ways that a professional may help with weather proofing your deck. If you suspect that your deck is not properly weather proofed, please call us today so we can come offer a free inspection and let you know what your deck might need. Whether you live in Pennsylvania, or any of the other areas we service, we are here for you!
