Once little more than an architect's afterthought, decks today are the toast of many a backyard. The trend toward outdoor cooking has been the driving force, but decks are more than extensions of the kitchen.
A deck is a wonderful place to unwind on a sunny day, entertain guests, curl up with a book, hold a family reunion, or simply enjoy a family barbeque. Designed as an extension of your home, your deck deserves the same amount of care, attention, and maintenance as other areas of the home.
As deck materials and construction methods evolve, designers continue to push the limits of form and function. From pressure-treated to composite, there are many types of decking materials and each carries its own advantages and disadvantages. Which material best suits your needs depends largely on your intended use and budget.
Regular maintenance and professional deck cleaning extends the life of your deck; however, there are several considerations before firing up the pressure washer. Avoid costly deck repairs with these maintenance and cleaning tips from A1 Handyman.
