5 Reasons you should consider a deck maintenance service

Rosario Ungaro - Thursday, April 26, 2018

We keep the wood hutch we have in our den looking beautiful because we maintain it. Granted it doesn't take much, but we keep it dusted, clean of debris and dirt, and polished to maintain its lustrous finish. It’s a family heirloom. We enjoy it. We know it takes a little work to keep it nice.

So it stands to reason it’s even more important that we maintain, clean of debris and dirt, and refinish our outdoor wood decks and structures, all of which, winter after winter, thaw after freeze after thaw after freeze, must weather our harsh Canadian climate, if we are to keep them in good condition and maintain their original colour and finish.

The big difference is in the amount of work that is required, and possibly in the know-how required to do the job right.

Our clients keep asking us if we offer deck maintenance services. Clearly our clients want to enjoy being on their decks, NOT working on them. In response to our clients’ requests, we have now started offering deck maintenance services.

5 Reasons you should consider Benchmark's Premium Deck Maintenance Services

  1. We use Cutek wood protection productsYou will get a better Return on Investment (ROI) on your deck because a properly maintained deck will give you a longer service life
  2. You can be assured that your deck is safe and hasn’t been adversely affected by the freezing and thawing that can occur during our harsh Toronto winters
  3. You’ll know that the job has been done right, by professionals who know what they are doing
  4. You’ll know that only the best products, suitable for your type of deck, were used in the maintenance process
  5. You can spend your time relaxing on your deck, NOT working on your deck

After an initial site visit, we provide you with a fixed-price quotation for your annual maintenance services. Pricing is based on the starting condition of your deck and the surface area of your deck or wood structures. For customers who bought a pre-treated deck from us there will be a considerable discount because it has already been prepared to give you a long service life.

Whether Benchmark built your deck or not, plan on enjoying your deck and let Benchmark worry about your deck's maintenance needs. 

For you do-it-yourselfers out there, Benchmark carries the complete line of Cutek wood protection products

A word from Rosario…

Our Blog is about sharing some of what we have learned along the way. (Many contractors even call us for ideas or advice.) We hope it is informative and shows our commitment to continuous learning—something we do so we can bring the very latest and best to our customers. 

You've probably heard the phrase: 

"Some people have twenty-five years of experience. Others have one year of experience, twenty-five times over." 

If a contractor doesn't stay up-to-date on the latest building codes, trends, styles, tools, materials, and products, they'll soon find themselves in the latter category. We work hard to make sure that we are not. We regularly talk with our suppliers, go to industry trade shows, and share information and ideas with our peers to make sure that we stay on top of our game and can continue to bring you the very best in building craftsmanship and knowledge.

I welcome the opportunity to chat with you about your next building project.
