A deck is a great way to add value and beauty to your home, not to mention the perfect place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. But with heavy foot traffic, harsh elements, and regular wear and tear, you will want to protect your investment, preserving the longevity, function, and appearance of your deck. To help shield the wood, here are five reasons you should consider a deck coating.
Your deck takes the brunt of the elements. Over time, moisture can compromise the integrity of the wood, leading to rotting and expensive repairs or replacement. Don’t leave your deck to fend for itself. Applying a deck coating will repel water and stop moisture from seeping into the wood.
Protect your deck from the sun
The sun’s ultraviolet rays can wreak havoc on your deck. Prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause warping, discolouration, and cracking in the surface. Safeguard the wood by having it properly sealed. By blocking out harmful UV rays, you will prolong the lifespan of your deck.
Prevent mold and mildew
Mold and mildew growth is a common issue for many untreated decks. Left unchecked, mold spores can cause serious damage to the wooden surface, as well as pose serious health risks to you and your loved ones. An effective coating system will block out moisture, helping to keep mold at bay.
Up the safety factor
The safety of your family, friends, and guests should be a top priority for any homeowner. But structurally unsound wood, extrusions, and splinters can cause harm to anyone out on your deck. A coating system provides a smooth surface that is safe to walk on. You and the people you care about spend a lot of time out on your deck. Protect everyone with a well-sealed deck.
Easy to clean
Don’t enjoy the thought of deck maintenance? You are not alone. Trying to scrub away dirt, grime, and stains can be an arduous and time-consuming process. With deck coating covering the surface of the wood, cleanup has never been easier. All it takes is a quick wipe down or light sweeping, and you are done.
A deck coating is the smart wood-saving solution that will keep your deck looking great and in tip-top condition for a long time to come.
