  • Clean it! Use a leaf blower or sweep your deck to get rid of leaves and debris that might have accumulated over fall and winter. Once everything is cleared up, power wash it to get rid of the dirt and mold.
  • If you had put deck furniture away, you should clean it. Clean it with a wet rag and leave it out to dry after your done.
  • Clean your grill! You will soon be grilling steaks, burgers, and hot dogs, so get it prepared.
  • Consider updating your deck. We can work with you to update the look of your deck; whether you need to add a roof or turn it into a screened porch, we can help you remodel your deck.
  • Add colorful decor to your deck. Whether it be fun pillows or colorful pots, this is the perfect time to freshen up the decor.
  • Add some flowers and plants. You can start planting around your deck and in your backyard or add store-bought plants.
