The need for deck maintenance
Your home is your castle and your deck should be a warm and welcoming connection between the household and the outdoors of your yard. An entertaining deck should add to your home’s beauty and not distract from it. It should be the grand stage of your family’s outdoor activities, regardless of the size or view that it offers.
A deck is commonly a high traffic area that cops a lot of abuse, too. This results in wear and tear, especially after continued exposure from the weather. After a few years, without proper deck maintenance, your deck can become uninviting, poor in appearance and extremely battered. This can have a huge impact on your entertaining, social and outdoor use. A beautiful wooden deck is after all, as iconic as the Australian BBQ. It evokes laughter and good times between friends and family. It’s very important to schedule deck maintenance at least every few years to maximise your enjoyment of this part of the house and to avoid having to do much more substantial deck restoration work after the damage is done.
Why timber deck restoration is important
Thankfully the majority of deck surface issues are superficial and not structural. From your unmaintained deck, you may experience damaged, twisted boards, nail pops and even severe fading and discolouration. However, as most decking is built with durable woods these concerns can usually be addressed without major rebuilding. Decking woods generally consist of cedar, treated pine or redwood. There is a reason these woods are regularly used and it benefits you in more ways than just being longer lasting.
These woods offer a degree of protection even before being professionally installed and treated. For natural resistance to termites and decay, cedar and redwood are great choices; while pine is treated with pesticide to protect it from insects and deterioration.
Timber deck restoration will not only add years to the life of your deck, it is much more affordable than replacing it completely. This is true regardless of the current condition of your timber! The restoration process undertaken to restore wooden surfaces, rejuvenates and revitalises them, returning them to their former glory. This also saves you time on deck maintenance for your Brisbane home as the years go by.
