Other than “pre-treated timbers”, any timber left exposed to the outdoor elements will cup, crack, and warp within the first year or so if it is not protected. The two most common natural enemies of wood are sun and rain and they initially discolour the timber’s surface and in the longer term, allow attack by destructive fungal decay (wood decay fungi) commonly known as “dry rot”.
Exposed timber decks are particularly susceptible to the effects of exposure to the weather. Our high pressure cleaning services removes dirt, grease and flaking material from the decking to provide that essential “key” to allow surface coating such as decking stains or oils to bond with timber.
Regular cleaning and sealing will extend the life of all timbers, including vertical surfaces such as weatherboards and enhance the look of retaining walls and fences. It helps to preserve our wonderful forest resources and saves you money, in the long run.
