After Being Re-Decked by Central Iowa Fencing

Decks are a great way to enhance your outdoor living are and help improve your home value.  Most people love to entertain their guests outside during the summer months and nothing is worst than have an old weathered deck with wood splinters, discoloration, and rotted boards.  To keep your wood deck in good sound structural shape and keep the natural beauty of your wood intact it is important to do a little deck maintenance.

Does A Wood Deck Need Maintenance?

Most wood decks are made with pressure treated wood but some are also made of redwood which has a natural preservative in it.  A deck built with good quality pressure treated pine with last for years but it can start to splinter and discolor after only a few months if not properly maintained.  By not properly maintaining your deck it can dry out and splinter and discolor.

Should I Seal My New Deck?

You should seal your wood deck to help keep it looking good and protect it from the elements.  A deck sealed will be easier to clean off dirt.  Cleaning and sealing a deck will also kill and remove any organic mater growing on the boards like algae.  You should seal your wood deck after a few weeks, giving it time to stabilize.

How To Maintain A Wood Deck?

To maintain your wood deck it is recommended to check your deck once a year  for rotted or loose wood boards and protruding nails.  When cleaning your wood deck you should remove all the dirt, algae, and moss growing on your deck.  To seal your wood deck apply a clear or semi-clear wood sealant.

What Happens If I Don’t Maintain My Deck?

Many people never do anything to their deck.  Deck maintenance will make the wood deck look good for years and will cut down on wood splinters.  Dirt and organic matter accumulates on decks and can make them slippery, which can be a potential safety hazard.
