A Couple of Tips From
Action Wash

Tip #1

Proper ventilation is needed to prevent moisture buildup...

Standing water can lead to premature wood damage. Gaps between boards must be free from dirt, debris and twigs; allowing water to drain freely. Air needs to flow in, and around, your deck to prevent moisture buildup. If your deck is over 24" high, make sure air can enter from the sides. Gaps between the boards can be opened, and vents can be installed to solve moisture problems.

Tip #2

Protecting your deck from water stains...

Adequate drainage is needed for potted plants. Therefore drain holes are located at the bottom of most pots. Setting the pot or planter on the deck surface will leave a stain and may start wood decay in that area. Moisture never has a chance to evaporate between the deck and planter. For large plants use a few cedar or treated 2x2's to separate the planter from the deck. Deck stand-offs can be used not only for planters. They can also be used for umbrella stands or other flat heavy objects of any size, Deck stand-offs are small decks are small decks that made out are made of cedar or treated pine. If you can't find the right size, shape or color Action Wash can custom make them to your specifications.
