Wood rot and neglect are two of the biggest things that can affect your SeaTac home’s porch or deck. When it’s quickly falling into shambles, the time to act is now and quickly. It might begin with a single loose board, but that can progress at lightning speeds to other loose boards, signs of weather damage, and a general rotten aesthetic and feel. Don’t let your porch or deck become dangerous. Call Evergreen Home Exteriors for outdoor porch repairs by a certified contractor with experience, expertise, and knowledge.
Many homeowners want to do DIY renovation and repair projects, but that’s not always the best course of action. If you lack knowledge or hands-on experience with deck and porch repairs, then you’d save more time and money by hiring a professional from Evergreen Home Exteriors. Our contractors are knowledgeable and well-equipped with the right tools and know-how to repair your porch or deck effectively, quickly, and easily.
How Can a Neglected Porch or Deck Become Dangerous?
When wood rots or becomes flimsy and damaged, it weakens. This presents a huge risk to anyone that walks on it. Weak wood can’t hold body weight the way that stronger, healthier wood can, so there are more considerable risks of falling through a porch or deck that’s been neglected. Those falls are usually 2 to 6 feet off the ground, and sudden, which can result in serious injury.
At Evergreen Home Exteriors, we take precautions to avoid falling through porches and decks in our care, and we can strengthen them to like-new with time and thorough work. It’s easy to look at your porch or deck and not see any immediate threats, but the fact of the matter is that you should get annual inspections to ensure your deck or porch meets safety standards.
