How to Care for a Hardwood Deck in Newcastle

Do you want to add a functional outdoor living space to your home? While composite decking is becoming more and more popular, you may prefer a hardwood deck. Weather can take its toll on wood and some homeowners simply aren’t willing to put in the time and effort for proper cleaning and maintenance. Depending on your personal preferences and lifestyle, however, real wood materials may be the best option for you and your family in Newcastle. A hardwood deck can look fabulous if cared for properly. Keep the following care tips in mind if you’re considering a hardwood deck.

Clean Your Hardwood Deck Regularly 

You will need to clean your hardwood deck regularly with warm, soapy water and a stiff-bristle brush. The goal is to remove residues, pollen, dust, dirt and tree droppings. 

Refinish Your Hardwood Deck as Needed

Over time, it’s not uncommon for a hardwood deck to become dull, even in Newcastle. You can restore that “like new” appearance by refinishing and resealing the deck. This can be a big job, however, so it may be a good idea to hire a professional outdoor living space contractor to sand, re-stain and/or paint it.  

Add a Light Oil Coating for Shine

If you want your hardwood deck in Newcastle to shine, consider adding a layer of wood oil. This can enrich and deepen the color of your deck.
