Summer Party Planning Checklist for Outdoor Hosting
Deck Staining and Exterior Painting are Essential Prep for Summer Parties
When you throw a party, what’s on your to-do list before your guests arrive? You probably clean the kitchen, declutter the living room, and spot-check the bathrooms. No matter what the process looks like, we all tidy up before party time. The problem is, you can’t eat, cook, entertain, or relax on a deck or patio that isn’t ready for the summer.
Luckily, it doesn’t take much more than some exterior painting and wood staining to really tidy up your outdoor hosting spaces.
Exterior Painting and Staining Can Transform Summer Party Season
There are numerous benefits to keeping up with regular painting and staining your outdoor surfaces. While you want to keep the outdoor area looking nice, painting and staining also protect your outdoor hosting spaces from the seasonal elements, reducing your overall maintenance costs.
If you’re trying to get your deck or patio ready for outdoor hosting, here are some essential steps to get everything ready for fun in the sun!
A wooden deck is vulnerable to the elements. In the spring, torrential storms can damage the material and in the summer, the hot sun beats down. There might be drastic swings in humidity levels that can also cause the wood to degrade. Keeping the deck clean, sanded, sealed, and stained can minimize these effects and keep your deck looking great for a long time.
CertaPro Painters® of Merrick will clean off any chipping paint and dirt, power wash the deck, sand it to make it smooth, and apply a stain that will provide the right type of protection for our climate.
Your patio can take a lot of abuse. Outdoor elements and simple wear and tear from regular use will cause the paint to eventually fade and become worn. Painting your patio will give this outdoor area new life for all your upcoming summer parties. We can work with you to decide on the right color of paint to complement your home’s exterior colors.
Exterior Painting – Fences, Siding and More
We can clean, sand, and paint any exterior surface including fences, shutters, door archways, and siding. Your entire outdoor area will be given a new lease on life. You’ll be amazed at the difference it makes to the vibe of your summer grilling parties. Your guests will notice, but even more importantly, you’ll feel much more confident inviting others to your home for entertaining.
We have worked with homeowners just like you to get their outdoor areas ready for summer grilling on the weekends, cool mornings spent with a cup of coffee, or quiet family dinners enjoyed al fresco.
