With Spring right around the corner, now is the time to start thinking about revamping your outdoor space. Those fun summertime BBQ's  aren't going to hold themselves-- make sure your deck is ready for the warm weather -- whether it is a quick sand and stain or a complete structural overhaul. You'd be surprised how much of a difference it can make! Here are a few simple ways to update your deck or porch.

Make it Sturdy

Safety is not something to overlook when updating your deck or porch. Have a Moss Home Services professional ensure sure your structure is sturdy-- some things they may check:

  • Install new joist hangers where necessary


  • Cross brace the underside of the deck for extra support
