Living Smart: Deck Maintenance

By Angie Hicks

The price of hiring a professional can vary greatly, depending on the size and shape of your deck, as well as the materials used. Basic maintenance — cleaning, wood repair and staining or sealing — ranges from $400 to more than $1,000.

• If you decide to hire deck help, get several bids, check references and confirm that the company is appropriately licensed and insured. In addition, make sure the company has a plan for covering and protecting plants and other areas from cleaners or stains.

And when all is done, celebrate with some well-deserved downtime on your now-delightful deck.
