Below are a few ways to maintain your deck and other exterior surfaces.

Watch Out for Seasonal Damage

Deck Painting
When you need an exterior makeover, we are the painting company to call. We’ll paint the exterior of your home and anything else you need, such as your deck, patio, and even fence.

It is always a good idea to make sure your deck is still in great shape at the start of each season. With the frequent weather changes we can see in the Alberta area, you may find a few areas that need repaired. The most common reasons for deck damage include excess moisture and even wood rot. This can occur if too much water has the chance to settle into your deck. However, had your deck been treated with a paint or stain, it would be less likely to see this particular type of damage.

Once you notice any repairs that need to be made, even if it is as simple as peeling paint, you should consult with a local professional. By taking care of problems as soon as you find them, you can prevent more costly repairs in the future.

Schedule a Painting or Staining Service With Alberta’s Experts

As previously mentioned, a coat of paint or stain is the best way to protect your deck from the elements. If you have a new deck, or your deck needs repainted, our painting contractors are here to help. We have painted and stained many decks in the local service area, and we would love to help you transform your outdoor space.

Clean Your Deck Regularly

It is imperative to the structure of your deck that you keep its surface clean. This means sweeping away any debris after a storm, and making sure there is no ponding occurring on the surface. If your deck has hard to remove buildup, mold, and other stains, we recommend our professional power washing services. Our painting contractors can service the following surfaces: Wood, brick, concrete, aluminum, and asphalt.
