Deck Preservation and Repair Services
With regular use and constant exposure to direct sunlight, rain and snow, the materials of your deck could become damaged, warped and grayed. If your deck boards are cracked or damaged or the surface seems wobbly, it’s crucial to fix these to avoid costlier fixes or even replacements later and prevent injury to yourself or a guest. At Klappenberger & Son, we specialize in several deck preservation and repair services to keep your deck safe and looking pristine. Common deck repairs that homeowners need include:
- Loose, Cracked or Rotten Pieces of Decking
- Protruding Nails
- Loose Handrails or Other Structures
- Decking Boards Becoming Warped or Pliant
- Weak, Aged Support Beams
Even if your deck is looking aged or doesn’t feel as sturdy as it once did, we can work with you to restore pieces of your deck that are still in proper and safe condition and update parts of your deck that are too damaged or rotted — ensuring your deck is usable, safe and attractive for many years and parties.
Extensive and Safe Pressure Washing Experts
Part of regular deck maintenance is thorough and effective pressure washing. By pressure washing your home’s deck at least once every year, you can remove dirt and debris buildup and prevent any hazardous and unattractive mildew growth. This not only preserves the aesthetics and quality of your deck, but also reduces normal wear and tear by removing debris like mold, weeds and insects that eventually, when built up, damage the material and breaks down the structural integrity of the wood.
While you may be tempted to rent a pressure washing machine yourself, pressure washing should be performed by a skilled and trained professional. The pressure of the machine is designed to thoroughly remove hard stains and dirt buildup, but improper usage and technique can actually further degrade and ruin your decking materials. At Klappenberger & Son, we know the right nozzles and techniques to properly pressure wash your deck without damaging the integrity of the wood and we have high-quality detergents designed to reduce and prevent mold growth and keep the wood in good condition.
Deck Staining Services in Maryland
Along with power and pressure washing your home’s deck, staining is another method to improve the look and quality of your deck. Staining and painting applications need to be applied every three to four years to preserve the beauty and quality of your deck. With these coatings, you can prevent and reduce moisture and pest intrusion. At Klappenberger & Son, we offer a wide variety of painting and staining coloring options designed to enhance the natural beauty of your wood and complement your home’s design and architecture.
