The degree of maintenance required depends on the deck specification. A timber deck that is well maintained should last you at least 25years.
If a natural appearance is required, application of a water repellent preservative or decking oil will help to maintain the timber in good condition, although the timber will inevitably “grey” due to the effects of sunlight. The colour of the timber can be restored by the application of a stain finish. Water repellents should be applied every year or when the timber loses it water repellence.
#1 Decks offer a full maintenance package, were we can come out each year wash and oil your deck, or we can send out the required tools and equipment required to complete the job yourself.
