Regular Maintenance

Having a routine maintenance plan can avoid problems with your custom deck down the road in Tampa Bay. Priority Marine recommends creating a maintenance schedule to ensure that your new project stands the test of time. Here are some of the recommended procedures for maintaining the project:

  1. Cleaning– This includes removing debris between boards, sweeping the surface, and applying the appropriate cleanser depending on the materials that make up space.
  2. Sealing– If you opted for wood as a building material, many different seals and stains could be used. Sealers should be reapplied annually.
  3. Inspect and Repair– Once a year, you should carefully inspect your floors, stairs, and rails to check for signs of rot, splintering, or damages.
