Getting ready for spring with InvisiRail ™

Now that it’s officially spring, it’s time to start thinking about getting your deck ready for some quality time spent outdoors! Here are some helpful tips to ensure you’re maximizing your deck’s potential whilst maintaining your investment!  

Getting your deck ready for spring might feel like a daunting task, especially considering the seasonal weather conditions your deck has just gone through, causing wear and tear. The best course of action is to start by cleaning your deck. This is easily done by using a powerful yet safe deck cleaning solution and a pressure washer. If you don’t own a pressure washer, consider renting one from your local home centre. While you’re there, why not seek out some expert advice on which deck cleaning solution will work best for your application.

If you’ve had an InvisiRail ™ Glass Railing system installed a good cleaning will also help to keep your view crisp and clear. You’ll want to avoid using a pressure washer on your glass railing. Start with a gentle cleaning solution of mild dish soap and water to remove the build-up of dirt and grime. Consider Diamon-Fusion protective coating for added protection for your glass railing system. Get more tips on cleaning your glass railing here.

Next, you’ll want to thoroughly inspect your deck for any damage that may have occurred from snow and shoveling and make any necessary repairs at this time. If your decking material is wood, you can apply a waterproofing sealant to protect the wood from moisture and curb any potential rot from forming.

Finally, and here’s the fun part! Now’s the time to add some new furniture and maybe a few plants to your deck. You may also consider updating your outdoor lighting situation for optimal ambiance! Maybe even some new decorations too! The options are endless.
