Time to Spring Clean! Get your Deck Summer Ready

Summer is literally around the corner (and for some of us, we’ve skipped spring and are already enjoying the 30° summer days South Africa is known for). Is your deck ready for all the entertaining it’s going to be doing? Whether you have a timber or a composite deck, there are always a few things that you can do at the beginning of braai season to ensure that it looks as good as the day it was built. Below, we share a few simple steps to make sure your deck is ready for summer!

Timber Deck Maintenance Steps

*For good hardwood timbers sanding isn’t always necessary unless you want the rich natural colour back or you are having to remove a solvent based sealant product which was applied previously, otherwise oiling your nicely cleaned deck is all it takes to maintain a good hardwood deck which has greyed over time.

Composite Deck Maintenance Steps

*If you find that there are stubborn marks and/or your high traffic areas have visible marks, you can use a high-pressure washer to make sure your entire deck looks like new.

You can do all of the above yourself if you have the know-how, or you can contact your original decking installer so they can come out and have a look for you. Alternatively, contact us and we can put you in touch with a decking installer in your area that could help.
