Watch Out for Seasonal Damage

CertaPro Painters in Fort Wayne, IN - The Deck Staining ExpertsEach season it is important to check out how your deck is currently holding up. With the frequent weather changes we can see in the Fort Wayne community, you may find a few areas that have become weathered over time. The most common reason for deck damage is excess moisture that can cause wood rot, and even mold damage. When you have your outdoor surfaces treated with a paint or stain you can prevent this type of damage from occurring in the first place.

Clean All Outdoor Surfaces

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

Schedule a Painting or Staining Service

A new coat of paint or stain is the best way to protect your deck or patio. If you have a new deck, or your deck needs repainted, our painting contractors are always here for you. We have painted and stained many decks in the local service area, and we would love to help you transform any of your outdoor spaces in the Fort Wayne community.
