Don’t neglect your deck this winter. Here’s how to properly protect your deck during the cooler months.
Debris is the enemy when it comes to the longevity of your deck—and I’m not just talking about sticks and leaves. During winter, you’ll want to keep your deck free of pots, planters, and outdoor furniture, if possible. Why? Because any object left on your deck could cause rain-induced staining.
Back to sticks and leaves—you’ll want to remove those too. Have you ever left a bunch of leaves decomposing on your concrete driveway, only to find they’ve left a stain? The same thing will happen to your deck if you let the debris stay.
Even if you’ve given your deck a good seal, you should still consider covering it with a tarp over winter. A tarp will protect your deck from all kinds of debris, as well as harsh, wet, and icy weather. However, if you’re planning to continue using your deck all throughout winter, it’s okay to go tarp-less.
Note: if you’re opting to cover your deck, make sure no water can get underneath your tarp and pool, as this can cause further problems down the track.
