Maintaining Your Deck

Outdoor Preservation

The deck is a valuable asset to your home. It's surface is constantly exposed to the elements causing the wood to crack, fade, split, cup and warp. There are a number of products available today to help protect and prolong the life of your investment.

Although pressure-treated wood resists insects and decay, it's still vulnerable to moisture and the sun's rays. The same applies to other exterior woods including cedar and redwood. To keep it looking new and lasting longer, a regular maintenance treatment system is necessary.

On the Surface: A Complete Look

Each wood care product has a specific benefit for all wood surfaces, giving you the ability to customize a complete wood care system. This system begins the very first day and continues throughout the life of your wood. Here are some products you might consider.

New Wood Treatment: Protects brand new wood from the ravages of sun and rain.
Deck Cleaner and Brightener: Puts new life into dirty and graying decks.
Stain/Finish Remover: More powerful than a wood cleaner, this actually gets under and lifts off old sealers, finishes, and dirt that have built up on your deck over time.
Clear Wood Preservative with UV Protection: Revives the beauty of your weathered deck while protecting against the elements with a clear finish.
Exterior Stain: Solid or semi-transparent. Deep penetrating formula repels water. These are available as water-based or oil-based products; both provide fade and mildew resistance.

The First Year - Getting Off to a Good Start

It's very important for all wood, whether it's pressure-treated pine, cedar or redwood, to weather properly before applying a penetrating oil finish. During the critical first year, excess water must evaporate from the wood, and the mill glaze must wear off of smooth wood, allowing the wood fibers to open up. Only after this happens is the wood porous enough to accept a penetrating finishing coat.

It's very essential to apply a new wood treatment initially. An immediate application provides a slow, steady, weathering period. The movement of moisture into and out of the wood is controlled. This treatment also keeps the wood's natural color looking new longer.

How to Apply a New Wood Treatment

Read the manufacturer's instructions on the label before beginning. Make sure the weather is not going to turn cold or wet within the next 24 hours following application. Do not...
Wood doesn't last forever, but its life can be extended considerably with a little help and know-how on your part. There's something for almost any deck owner here, so please read the following information on caring for your deck.
