It was a productive weekend. After what seemed like weeks of nothing but clouds and rain, the weather finally cooperated. Without wasting a moment of the dry weather, you and your wife attacked the top project on your spring project list. You started Saturday morning by power washing the deck and by later afternoon when there was barely a breeze, you applied an exterior wood sealer. By Sunday evening your family was enjoying the fruits of your labor and the whole family enjoyed dinner on the deck.
Property maintenance involves both interior and exterior work. And while the most phone parts may be selecting new paint colors and redecorating a room, the reality is that the most important tasks are not all that glamorous. From applying exterior wood sealer to applying protective sealer for salt damage protection, the best home owners know that they need to spend time up front to make sure that the surfaces of their home and property can stand up to harsh weather and other unexpected conditions. The benefits of using a paint sealer or wood sealer when a house is first built is that you will get a longer life out of the protected surfaces.
Painting and wallpapering make the interiors or our homes look great. They also add value to our homes. Often, however, it is the time that you take to protect the unpainted and unwallpapered surfaces that can really pay off. Taking the time to treat concrete garage or basement floors, sealing cement block basement and foundation walls, and even treating decks and driveways can help home owners protect the future value of a property.
From avoiding mold, discoloration, and sun rot, protective sealants can help property owners protect their investments. consider some of these facts about why it is important to protect even the unseen and nondecorated surfaces in your home:

- 98% of basements in the America will suffer from some type of water damage during their lifetime. applying a water resistant sealant to those surfaces can minimize that damage.
- Stucco waterproofing products can help protect carefully designed ceilings and other surfaces.
- Exterior wood sealers correctly applied to a deck can last from two to four years depending on weather conditions. After that time, the old stain should be power washed off, reapplied, and resealed.
- $2.5 billion is the amount of money that water damage and mold cost the insurance industry every single year.
- Graffiti coatings can help property owners protect their building exteriors.
