All decks need maintenance at some point, and this is especially true for wood decks. Because of their natural properties, wood decks are prime targets for surface mold, mildew and discoloration over time. Decks built in a shady backyard or in very humid climates are especially prone to mold and mildew buildup because they rarely dry completely after a rainstorm. If your deck suffers from mold or mildew, there are several ways to restore it to nearly new.
Stains come in many different colors, from light to dark. You can match the color of the deck to the siding on your house or use a complementary color to the hue of your home. Stains come in transparent types that allow the grain of the wood to show through, and there are semi-transparent finishes that color the wood but still allow the grain to show through.
A patio is often built adjacent to an in-ground pool to offer a place for entertaining and relaxing. They can be made of poured concrete, precast concrete pavers or natural stone such as Pennsylvania bluestone or limestone. The materials that you use for a patio should coordinate with the other hardscape materials you use around your house so that there is a cohesive style or look.
To replace rotted or broken boards, remove the screws and use the damaged board as a template to cut a new board of the same material. Once you remove the rotted board, check the joists underneath to be sure they are free of rot.
