Being a homeowner can often be overwhelming. There are so many things around the house to maintain and update, it can be hard to know where to begin or to prioritize what it most important. Wooden decks are often neglected unless a major, visible repair is needed. Neglecting yearly maintenance of your deck can lead to unseen corrosion and can eventually require a costly and time-consuming repair. At Race City Roofing, we want to help you keep your deck healthy, strong, and corrosion free. Weathering is the main cause of deck corrosion, with rain and water being the main perpetrator. This is why we offer deck waterproofing services to prolong the life of your deck.
Deck waterproofing provides your wooden deck with a protective surface to prevent water from seeping into the wood. It reflects water instead of absorbing it. Consider it like a windbreaker for your deck. You wouldn’t go into the rain with a porous jacket, so your deck shouldn’t be exposed, either. Allowing water to seep into your wood will deteriorate your deck overtime, and your deck will not last as long.
In short, deck waterproofing is important and necessary to keep your deck lasting long and looking great. Choosing to waterproof your deck will prevent mold growth, reduce structural damage and save money overtime. At Race City Roofing, we have been waterproofing decks for over 20 years. To prepare your deck for the rainy season and prolong the life of your deck, give us a call!
