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?

West Coast Timbers have a whole range of timbers you can choose from. We have a larger variety of timbers than Bunnings so chances are we will be able to match your existing deck if you need to do a repair.

How to keep your decking looking good?

Hardwood_deckingYou’ve invested a lot of time and effort into your deck! So, it’s no surprise you want to keep it looking good for as long as you can – to enjoy many years of entertaining. Luckily, it’s fairly simple to maintain a deck and keep it looking beautiful.

Protection is the key

To keep your decking looking its best, it needs to be cleaned regularly. However, if you want your deck to last longer, you need to protect it. Don’t wait for your deck to start deteriorating before you do something about it. Preventative maintenance is a very wise idea. Before a problem arises, prevent it!

It’s extremely important to protect your deck once a year by using a decking cleaner and a decking stain, oil or protector. If it’s looking really old and weathered, you will need to use a decking restorer first before applying the products.

There are 3 types of products that will protect your decking:

  • Decking protector. This makes your deck water proof. Don’t worry, applying a decking protector won’t change the colour of your deck at all because it is translucent in colour;
  • Decking stain. This is available in a variety of colours. This makes your deck weather proof and gives it a semi opaque finish; and
  • Decking oil. It penetrates deep inside the wood replacing its lost natural oils while leaving a subtle colour that enhances the natural beauty of your wood decking.

Each of the above provides different levels of protection. Don’t let your deck look worn out and weary! Keep it looking fresh and new, so you can hold a deck party at the drop of a hat, without worrying about how tired it looks.

Sealing and Staining

Once you have purchased quality materials and it has been properly installed, you need to ensure that it is looked after well. Most installers will recommend that you wait a few days after installation to seal or stain the decking material for the first time. You want to give the timber a little while to breathe, before adding the finish to it.

A clear sealant or a wood stain can then be applied. No matter which you choose make sure that the product you use is right for the job.

  • Don’t use a stain that is intended for indoor use on an outdoor deck
  • Always check the label and read the instructions carefully.

Regular Maintenance

The most important thing to ensure your deck will have a long life is to make sure that yearly maintenance is done. You need to make sure that once a year you have the deck pressure cleaned.
