Patio & Masonry Maintenance Tips to Add to Your Fall Chores List

This is the time of year where the clement weather entices us to the outdoors. You know that little voice encouraging you to get out and enjoy the season and to worry about indoor maintenance after the weather turns. That makes this month the perfect time to perform a few patio and masonry maintenance. Consider adding these patio & maonry tips to your fall chores list.

Concrete and masonry are typically a low maintenance surfaces that hold up well to the elements. However, there are some things that should be done once a year to keep hardscaping looking its best. For example, use a mild bleach cleanser to scrub down hard surfaces  We don’t recommend power washing because it can cause permanent damage and can void  warranties.

PROTECT YOUR HARDSCAPING

Use an approved product, such as ‘Wet & Forget’, to remove  moss, mold, mildew or algae stains. Planning to protect your hardscape for the next season of snow and icing; fit your snow blower  with rubber blades. Avoid using deicers of any kind. Never use metal shovels or tools to remove snow or ice. Any of the aforementioned can cause permanent damage, such as pitting or cracking, to your hardscape surfaces.

Quality hardscaping and masonry will include a durable sealer, but staining can occur from rusting metal, flower pots, grease from grills, food and drink or oil and gas. Keep gutters, down spots and drains clear because water can cause sediment and erosion voiding your warranty.

So as you can see hardscaping and masonry don’t require a lot of maintenance. Just a little bit of effort keeps it looking good for a long time.
