A deck is a great way to extend your living space and enhance the appearance
of your home. Unfortunately, time, wear and Michigan weather can take their toll on your deck.
Let the professionals at JFGreen Renovations restore it to like-new condition.
What do I have to do to maintain my deck? I've heard a lot lately about composite decking materials. Are they better than wood?
The first step is to give your deck a thorough inspection. Look for surface wear, loose boards, popped nails and signs of deteriorating wood. Replace anything that looks suspicious. Next, use a good quality, biodegradable deck cleaner and/or a power washer to clean the deck thoroughly. Wait a day or two to let the deck dry completely. Then apply a finish. While there are many good products on the market, the deck restoration professionals at JFGreen Renovations recommend using Penofin®, an oil-based transparent finish. If this sounds like a lot of work, you're right, but the natural beauty of the finished product is worth it. Of course, JFGreen Renovations can do all this for you and get the job done quickly so you can enjoy your deck all year long.
It depends. Composite decking materials are made from a combination of plastic and wood byproducts. Some of the newer materials claim less maintenance than wood, are warp-free and offer a smoother, more consistent appearance. While composites present additional deck design choices, they can't quite match the appearance and feel of natural wood decking. JFGreen Renovations has considerable experience with both natural wood and composite decking and can work with you to determine the best material to restore your deck.
