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. Hardwood can look fabulous if cared for properly. Keep the following care tips in mind if you’re considering a hardwood deck.
Clean It Regularly
You will need to clean your deck regularly with warm, soapy water and a stiff-bristle brush. The goal is to remove residues, pollen, dust, dirt and tree droppings.
Refinish It 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 to sand and re-stain it.
Add a Light Oil Coating for Shine
If you want your deck to shine, consider adding a layer of wood oil. This can enrich and deepen the color of your deck.
