With the world in a standstill from the spread of the novelty virus COVID-19 people are looking for ways to fill their day. Many cities and states in the United States have ordered locals to stay home and shut down schools and businesses that are not essential. This is a time that most people have never seen anything like and has an impact on all families. Even if you are in a place that you are not shut down the government has asked all people to social distance themselves. This means that anything you are doing, you will need to make sure you keep about six feet of distance from you and anyone else. It also means that you should avoid any large groups and not hold any of your own. This has led many homeowners to stay at home and notice that their home could use this time to make some repairs and upgrades. McKay’s Painting addresses whether it’s time to refinish your outside deck.
Best Time to Stain or Paint a Deck
There are a lot of people that are wondering when the best time is to have their deck redone or refinished. The deck is an outdoor space that is exposed to the elements such as wind, rain and the sun. That is why you want to take the weather into account when you are thinking about refinishing your deck. The great thing is that the spring is a great time to have it done. The winter weather has gone away and the warmer temps are great to work outdoors. The other reason that this is a great time to have your deck done is because you are home and don’t have a lot of other things to do. It is a good idea to call a professional and see if they are offering their services such as refinishing your deck even when social distancing. The work is done outdoors and the crew can be small enough that they can keep the space that is required.
Is Your Deck Weathered or Damaged?
One of the other questions that many people have when they are thinking about refinishing their deck is if it is needed. You do not usually want to take on work that is not needed and that is why there is a balance that is needed. You want to make sure that your refinish the deck before the wood has become damaged. If you wait too long and have major signs of wear and bad wood it can lead to a larger repair. You may have to have areas replaced before you can have the rest of the deck refinished.
Why is Resurfacing Your Wood Deck a Great Idea?
The deck is place that most people spend time during three of the seasons. Spring, summer and fall are times in the year that people want to be outside. They weather is nice and the air is clean. If you want to utilize your deck for the rest of the year it is best to have it refinished early so that you get the most out of it.
