Preserving your wood deck in Reston, VA adds value to your home while prolonging the life of your deck investment. It helps you maintain the beauty, safety and function of your wood deck and prevents it from becoming a dangerous eyesore.
Of the more than 30 million wood decks in the United States, the overwhelming majority are constructed of pressure-treated wood. The North American Deck and Railing Association (NADRA) says that, according to nationwide surveys, 80% of all decks are constructed in whole or in part with preserved wood, and here’s why:
Damage from continual exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays, outdoor moisture, and human injury naturally causes wood decks to deteriorate. No matter whether your wood deck in Reston, VA is constructed of pine, redwood, cedar, or one of the dense tropical hardwoods like Ipê or teak, all wood decks are vulnerable to threats. Even pressure-treated wood benefits from regular cleaning and maintenance, and periodic preservation.
Look for a combined water-repellent wood preservative product. Select a water-based sealant for your wood deck in Reston, VA if it remains primarily in the shade or is prone to mold growth from high moisture content. If your deck is exposed to regular sunlight and tends to remain on the dry side, an oil-based sealant will restore the wood’s ability to repel water, insects and stains.
Tom Silva of This Old House fame reminds us wood preservatives are classified as pesticides, since they kill wood-destroying fungi and insects. Use of these chemicals is legally regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Use and discard them carefully in strict adherence to the label instructions.
