Do Before Summer

Summer is here, and kids will be filling your yard soon! This means barefoot afternoons may take place. Kids, parties and outdoor fun will fill your backyard. If you have a deck, you may want to go inspect it before leaving your shoes inside!

Decks can sometimes shift around a bit as the weather changes and wood acclimates. This can cause the nails to pop up. An injury can occur even if the nail is raised a tiny bit. So, walk your deck and examine the nails.

If you notice any raised nails, here is a solution for you! Go to your local hardware store and ask for the “Power Pro” screw. It is heavier than your average wood screw. This will hold your wood down, prevent warping and injuries as the traffic increases on your deck this summer!
