Restore Wood Decks in Falls Church, VA
Amongst consumers and businesses alike, wood is the most popular choice to provide an attractive look, privacy, and longevity. Whether your home is located in the country-side of Virginia, along the Potomac River, or in a suburban area such as Falls Church, VA, wood offers the versatility and function that you need. Though advancements in technology have alleviated many of the problems such as warping, rotting, and vulnerability to insects, wood still must be given attention. Let's take a look at why wood is so vulnerable.
Wood's make up consists of a network of microscopic cells. This network can be compared to that of a honeycomb structure. Once wood is cut to the desired length and shape the cells remain exposed to the elements. The cut honeycomb structure acts as a bowl which can catch particles from dust and dirt as well as tree and plant pollen. The larger of the particles will eventually be washed and blown away while the smaller particles will find themselves trapped in the cells. Overtime, the cells will fill with debris and will give the wood a discolored and very unattractive view.
The best way to restore and preserve the natural color of a wood deck is totally dependent on a two-step process: cleaning the surface of the wood decl and coating the wood with a high solid finish. High solid finish has the ability to penetrate the cells of the wood. Once it is exposed to warm air and natural sunlight, the finish turns from a liquid to a solid completely filling the cut cells. When the cells have become filled there is no space for harmful particles to become trapped. The staff at Hal Co Fence recommends Super Seal. Super Seal allows for the wood to expand and contract naturally while protecting the wood and preventing peeling.
Application of high solid finishes should be applied only on an as needed-based instance. On newly installed fencing, immediate application is recommended. Following the next spring season, consumers should consider a second application. Depending upon the woods exposure and desired cosmetic appearance, it is recommended that subsequent coats only be applied every four to six years. Finally, it is imperative to remember that thin coats are better than thick coats due to the fact that high solid finishes have the ability to stretch the wood.
Whether it is during the hot and humid summer months or the cool and crisp fall/winter seasons, the staff at Hal Co Fence can keep your investment in your Falls Church, VA wood deck looking new. If you have any questions or are considering a new fence, wood deck or gazebo, give us a call.
