Maintaining Your Porch

Cleanliness is Key

The first step in maintaining a beautiful porch is to clean it regularly. Sweeping and vacuuming prevents the dirt from getting ground into the grooves of the surface, scratching the floor in the process. How often you reseal the floor depends on the amount of wear and tear your porch receives. Generally we have found that sealing is necessary every 5 to 7 years.

Cleaning the floor of your porch is relatively easy. Vacuum the floor to remove the dust and pollen. Damp mop with a mild solution of vinegar and water. When the floor is dry, brush on the sealer being careful of lap marks. Avoid walking on the floor until it is completely dry!

Long-term Maintenance and Care

Re-screen only as necessary. You will find that birds flying into the screen will cause holes, pets may rip them and kids love to push on them. Most of our clients call us when its time to re-screen. We can do it quickly and expertly.

Posts of pressure-treated lumber will occasionally warp or “check” (a fissure develops down the post). This is normal and due to the expansion and contraction of the wood. There is no need to be concerned, the post is still sound. Another common occurrence is sap bleeding from knotholes. Again, this is nothing to worry about and is typical of many types of wood.

Mold and mildew on ceilings and walls can form in damp and shady environments. You can remedy this with a solution of water and bleach. Start with a 1: 4 bleach to water ratio. Strengthen as needed.

  • “Last June, my wife and I contacted Outdoor Makeover regarding replacing the “weeds” in our front lawn with sod, replacement of all shrubs in the front and back yards and the planting several new trees throughout our property. Once we confirmed the design plan, the Outdoor Makeover crew got started immediately. The job soon took on a life of its own and Navid and his crew were ready and willing to be flexible and get the job done. It is a pleasure to work with a professional that understands the meaning of good communication and customer service. The project came out perfect and we are very happy with our new lawn, shrubs and trees. We look forward to a mutually beneficial, long-term relationship with Outdoor Makeover.”

  • “While we had a general idea of some things we wanted done, Navid was able to envision a work product beyond that which we could have imagined. In addition to being very accessible, Navid was very customer focused and was intent throughout the project of ensuring that our expectations were met. We were amazed at his team’s ability to execute so quickly from “design” to final product. Expectations were more than exceeded, and we would certainly use Navid and Outdoor Makeover on future projects.”

  • “Navid and the Outdoor Makeover team are top notch. They found solutions within our price range and help us accomplish our most important priorities. Further, even after we paid them in full and needed them to come back to touch up some items, they came back within 1 week. This is UNHEARD of these days! I would highly recommend them to everyone!”

  • “Navid and his team have exceptional vision and incredible talent for design.
    Outdoor Makeover delivered a plan that is much better than the competitors from design to build. I ended up with an exceptional result that I totally love and enjoy daily. I am very proud to show off my special area in my yard and everyone loves hanging outside now; Navid asked questions to figure out my lifestyle. Furthermore, Navid discovered what I needed and wanted, of which I was unaware when we started the process.”

    Christy A. Sandy Springs, GA

  • “We contacted a number of landscapers before we found Outdoor Makeover. Navid and Omid worked hard on improving our front and backyard. They worked quickly and diligently and now we have a beautiful lawn and outdoor entertainment area. Their customer service was excellent. They called or emailed us a number of times just to make sure everything was right and we were satisfied. Great Job - Great Customer Service - Great People!”
