Protecting Your Deck During Winter

Remove Organic Debris

Depending on how many trees you have near your home, you could have a layer of leaves sitting on your backyard deck. We recommend removing these leaves before the snow flies so you can better protect your deck.

While composite decking and plastic decking are durable against winter weather, they’re not invincible. The best way to protect your deck is to invest in preventive care before the snow flies. We also recommend cleaning the surface of your deck with a soft bristle brush and soapy water.

Clear Your Deck

What’s sitting on your backyard deck right now? We recommend removing outdoor furniture, planters, and other objects that could damage the surface of your deck over winter. For example, planters with drainage holes can trap moisture against the surface of your deck.

Take a Break from Shoveling

One of the most common ways homeowners scratch up their decks is by shoveling too often. Fortunately, you can easily sweep away a light dusting of snow with a broom. If you wake up to several inches already on the ground, we recommend using a plastic shovel to remove snow. Metal shovels have sharp edges that can scrape your deck. Shovel in the same direction of your decking boards so your shovel is less likely to get caught on edges.

Don’t Chip Away Ice

Do NOT chip the ice with your shovel as this will only cause more damage to your backyard deck. The last thing you want is for your deck to be covered in scrapes and gouges once the snow melts.

Ice increases the likelihood of a slip-and-fall accident, which is why we understand the temptation to chip ice off your deck. Instead, we recommend using salt that’s safe to use on your composite decking. While salt leaves behind a chalky residue on your composite decking, it can be easily removed by rinsing your deck with a garden hose in the spring.

We offer WPC decking from This decking materials have the advantage of being weather resistant. This means that you don’t have to worry as much about how snow will affect the appearance of your backyard deck.
