  • Deck out Your Deck This Summer

    Refurbish the look of your deck with CertaPro Painters of Upper Marlboro, MD.

    Everyone loves to be outside during this time of the year. Summer is the perfect time for enjoying your deck with friends and family and is also a great time to complete any outdoor improvements. Make sure your deck is in tip-top shape before hosting any BBQs or allowing the kids to run around barefoot. Are all of the screws and nails secured tightly? Are there any signs of dry rot? How is the exterior painting of the deck? A lot of work goes into keeping your deck looking beautiful. A CertaPro Painters of Upper Marlboro, MD painting contractor can help you with all of your deck maintenance.

    The deck preparation is truly the most important step for this painting project. Before even considering adding more exterior painting to your deck, you will need to check the structure and wood condition of the deck. A painting contractor cannot begin painting until all of the dry rotted boards have been replaced and the rest of the deck has been sanded appropriately. If you or a painting contractor properly prepares the deck's surface, then the exterior painting will last for years to come. Once all preparations have been made, apply two coats of primer to the deck's surface and wait for it to dry before covering the deck with paint. It could take up to four days for the primer to dry so be patient! Generally, latex paint is more suitable for decks in comparison to oil based paints.

    Now that you have accomplished the grueling work of the project, you can have fun and be creative when it comes to the exterior painting portion. Why not select something a little more unique and edgy? Any painting contractor will recommend browns, beiges, off whites and reds as great exterior painting color selections for any deck. It really just depends on what you think looks best and what complements your current house color. You even could go so far as hiring a painter contractor to paint intricate designs, such as a family emblem, onto the deck.
