Having a deck is a fantastic luxury that you and your North Georgia family can enjoy. It allows you to use every portion of your property to the utmost. Whether you have an exotic hardwood deck or a pressure-treated lumber deck, it can last much longer if you renew the stain and sealant that protects the wood.
Did you know that some sealants only last a year? It’s true. How long has it been since your deck has been sealed? By refinishing the wood, you could enjoy your deck for decades instead of only a few short years. And yes, even pressure-treated lumber will last years longer than the 5-7 years it’s rated for if you keep it protected. But deck staining and sealing isn’t just for protection.
Deck Staining Enhances the Nature Beauty of Your Property
One of the reasons that it is great to have a deck is how it adds to the overall look and feel of your home. Wood is an amazing building material for a deck because the natural beauty of its warm color and unique grain patterns complement and enhances the property exterior. However, there are problems when the wood finish gets worn down and the deck is exposed to the weather.
Your beautiful deck will soon get dry and sun-bleached. The color fades out over time if the deck isn’t stained and sealed when it needs to be.
Wood is very absorbent and it takes a while for it to dry out. With frequent wetting and drying, the wood can warp and eventually start to rot in areas where it doesn’t dry out as much. This often happens at joints and underneath the deck area.
The sun’s UV rays also have a damaging effect on wood. This is why the sealants which resist UV ray damage are the best choice to make when staining and resealing the deck. Decks aren’t cheap to build, so it’s important to stain and seal the deck every few years. Unfortunately, many homeowners make the investment but don’t know that this maintenance will extend the life of the deck for many years to come.
