Families often enjoy the company of friends and the many hours of relaxation spent on their outdoor deck overlooking their backyard. Many home owners agree that timber can provide a raw and natural beauty that is often unique to their home.
In today’s market there is a very wide variety of timber finishes available. There is often a colour and style to suit everyone’s personal taste. There are some unique hardwoods which can only be sourced from Australian forests; these include blue gum, grey ironbark, jarrah and karri.
Just as any surface exposed to outdoor elements, decks and timber fences will require annual cleaning and maintenance. The correct preventative care will prevent the additional costs of replacing or repairing wooden panels or beams. For any supporting or weight bearing timber it is highly advised that home owners annually organise a qualified building inspector to examine the condition and state of the wood. This can prove to be a vitally important safety procedure as timber is susceptible to many elements which can deteriorate the strength of the wood.
To ensure that your deck and fence maintain their original appearance pressure cleaning is often quickest and most efficient method. Wooden decks and timber fences can be cleaned using detergents and the use of pressure washer. This pressure cleaning process enables any previous substrates including dirt to be removed from the surface. This process will prepare the surface for timber staining and oiling. Oiling and staining is a very important process in deck cleaning. Staining will protect the wood and prevent moisture, termites and harmful UV lights from destroying and eroding the timber.
