When should I seal my deck?

Hardwood_deckingSeal your deck every year. Having your deck sealed annually will help keep its gorgeous look for years to come.

Follow the 5 easy tips to extend the life of your deck,

  1. Sand any rough spots
  2. Sweep clean all dust
  3. When to reapply deck sealer
  4. Apply deck sealer
  5. When should I seal my deck?

Sand any rough spots

Before you start cleaning, make sure to remove the scratches, lumps or bumps on the surface of the board making it smooth ready for sealing. Use a fine sandpaper to sand any splintered floor surface. Check for any damaged or rotten boards to know if needs repair or replacement.

Sweep clean all dust

Sweep the entire deck with a soft broom to clean dust, dirt and any debris above from the boards. You could also use leaf blower for loose dirt or debris that maybe hiding between the boards.

When to reapply deck sealer

When do you need to reapply your deck sealer? Every 12 months is a good rule of thumb but depending on the conditions you may need to do it more often.

To determine whether to seal or not, pour a small amount of water on a deck surface of your deck; if the water beads up in droplets then you don’t need to reapply deck sealer in that area of your deck. If the water soaks into the deck, then you will need to reapply the same type of sealer you have used previously; after the cleaning process.

It is very difficult to change from oil based sealers to water based sealers or vice versa with sanding your deck back to bare wood. The old saying of oil and water don’t mix really is true for deck sealers.

Apply deck sealer

Follow the instructions on the back of the can for your particular type of deck sealer.

Try to prevent people and pets from walking on the deck while it is drying, which depending on the weather may take a day or two.

When should I seal my deck?

Sealing your deck is like applying moisture to your skin, it stops the wood drying out and keeps your deck in great condition for many years to come. You should reapply a sealer to your deck every year to help prevent damage occurring to your deck. Or if the weather conditions have been harsh or the deck has not be sealed for a while you may have to reapply more often.

Need new decking boards or a whole new deck?
