3 Tips to Get Your Patio or Deck Ready for Guests

Spring is here and summer is right around the corner, which means it’s time to get your deck or patio ready for outdoor entertaining! In today’s post, Sterling Exteriors, your siding, deck and patio experts, share some tips to prepare your outdoor living space for the warm season.


1. Check for Problems

Inspect your deck or patio for issues. If you spot any problems, call a deck and roof repair expert as soon as possible so the problem doesn’t have a chance to worsen. Don’t rely on DIY solutions because you could inadvertantly make the problem worse, leading to more expenses. Regularly inspecting your outdoor living area and promptly dealing with problems prevents small issues from escalating, saving you money in the long run. 

2. Clean Thoroughly

Sometimes, all a patio or deck needs to be guest-ready is a good cleaning. Depending on when the last time you cleaned the area was, however, you may have your work cut out for you. If you are not confident you can get your patio or deck in good shape in time for any festivities, don’t hesitate to call a professional for assistance.

3. Improve the View 

Depending on the current condition of your landscaping, this can mean trimming or scaling back on shrubbery, trees and other foliage surrounding your property. Make sure your patio or deck is also designed to complement this view or that your home siding, roofing and windows don’t clash with the overall vibe of the area.
