Maintaining Timber Decks

Like all timber surfaces, they need to be properly maintained. Timber decks and the coatings applied are subject to the damaging effects of weather, it is important to have your deck cleaned and oiled on a regular basis.

A poorly maintained timber deck quickly turns grey in colour as it deteriorates due to the high level of ultra violet light (UV) dirt, mould, and algae. When this happens the timber deck becomes dry and will splinter creating a rougher surface even more inviting to dirt and grime and mould. This will also enable the timber to rot.

To prevent timber deck deterioration keep your deck well maintained and treated with a professional grade decking stain or wood deck sealing product that has been applied properly.

Timber Deck Oiling &  Sealing

Before you purchase a timber sealer from your local home improvement store, you should know that oiling or sealing the deck is only one part of what it takes to do the job properly. Before deck oils stains or sealers are applied, the wood needs to be thoroughly pressure cleaned with environmentally friendly bio degradable cleaning products. This is needed to remove the dirt, grime, and soil that has been embedded deep into the wood’s grain.

For most homeowners (and inexperienced professionals), using a pressure cleaner on timber can be very difficult.

After having an issue with the first roof cleaner not turning up, we called Scott and he was really responsive to the situation. Despite being really busy he committed to getting to us within the week, which was great because we were getting solar installed and needed to get the roof cleaned ASAP. The young guy that turned up to do the job was great (I think his name was Matt), really efficient, polite and did a fabulous job - the roof was filthy after not having been cleaned for 10 years, it is sparkling now.Thanks Scott and team, definitely recommend this business.

I wanted my roof cleaned and I did a lot of research before confirming with these guys and I wasnt disappointed at all. I found them to be reliable, honest, punctual and very reasonably priced. They did not try to oversell me any unnecessary services, like others did and the roof looks brand new. Very happy with the job.

Timber Deck Oiling Gold Coast FAQ

Some of the common questions asked by our customers about timber deck oiling.

Most weatherproofing should last at least 12 months. If your deck gets excessive sun (dryness) or no sun at all (mildew), you may need to service it more often. If you use a good decking oil and your deck gets a good balance of sun and shade, it could last up to two years.

All woods are different, some decks are ready to be treated immediately, and some must wait up to 2-3 months.  Most damage to a deck happens quickly, so evaluate your deck in a timely fashion so that irreparable damage is not done.

This is an easy one. Unless you are in love with the darker color, go with the transparent stain that has just a little added colour pigment. If you go with a dark semi-transparent or solid stain, it is very difficult to go back to a transparent product. Transparent stains that bring out the natural grain of the timber look better for longer.

Remember that the lighter the finish the lesser the protection.  Transparent finishes that are truly clear last only 6-12 months.  100% Transparent finishes with pigment such as Cabot’s Clear Solution suggest recoat every 24 months.  Semi-transparent or Semi-Solid Stains typically last 3-4 years.  Solid Stains typically last from 3-5 years .  The darker the color with all products, the longer it takes the sun to fade it.  The lighter colors do fade more quickly. The transparent finishes show 100% of the grain.  Semi-transparent and Semi-solid products show 35-75% of the grain.  Solids cover all grain and can be custom matched.

The horizontal surfaces of the deck receive more harsh elements than the vertical surfaces.

Decks do not necessarily have to bead up to be well protected. All of our products are rated very highly by Consumer Reports, which is the best indication of excellent protection. In fact, some of the lowest ranked products bead up the most!

Typically oil based finishes dry to the touch within a few hours and can be walked on in 24-48 hours after curing.  Latex finishes typically dry within 2-3 hours and need a full 48 hours to cure.  You would be amazed at how quickly oil finishes set.  Often passing showers do not effect these finishes after application.

 Every deck should be washed before oiling  or staining. All lumber especially pressure treated pine contains a chemical commonly known as mill glaze. It protects the wood during the storing in lumberyards. This must be removed prior to oiling or staining to ensure proper adhesion.

Waterworx Pressure Cleaning & Timber Deck Oiling Brisbane can remove some of them, but unfortunately the oils penetrate the wood and set in.  We will do our best, but never promise full removal without sanding.

Many composite decks will NEVER need a protective finish.  However, the outside elements such as pollen, moisture and lack of sun exposure can promote mould and growth on the deck.  We typically rinse down composite decks every 1-2 years.

We have a program called re-decking that promotes the use of existing framing of current deck while removing the rails and flooring.  We often convert old splintery decks to maintenance free decks at a discount when we do not need to create a new frame.
