What You Should Know About Long Island Preserved Soft Wood Decks
Adding a deck to your home is a great choice to make but preservation is the key to longevity. There is no point investing the time, effort or money into having this feature built for your home if you are simply going to let it rot away. So before opting to have this built, or in case you have already done so, here is what you should know about reserving soft wood decks.
Doing Your Part
A brand new wood deck offers a warm and inviting space for you, your family and friends and neighbors to enjoy the great outdoors. But, of course, being outside means being subjected to weather, the elements and wear and tear in general. So, after a few years without proper care, your deck space can become weathered and look unappealing.
The good news is that most surface problems are cosmetic, not structural, unless left neglected for long periods of time. But even UV rays over time begin to breakdown wood surfaces, causing graying and erosion. So if you want to be able to take care of your wood surfaces, you have to be willing to invest the time and effort. This will help protect and preserve your wood deck for years to come.
If left unprotected, the deck will absorb moisture which can lead to serious damage. Your deck goes through exposure to foot traffic, sun exposure and snow just to name a few things, so you should be taking care of treating your deck often, in many cases as often as annually.
Some of the things you have to do include:
- Inspecting for rot
- washing it regularly
- removing stains and discoloration
- having it professionally finished and refinished
