It’s fair to say you will use your decking in Shropshire a lot less during the colder winter months.
During this time of inactivity it’s vital to provide regular maintenance to stop it going into a state of disrepair and looking old and tired.
With the summer heatwave now a distant memory many families are using indoor rooms to spend time together, but preserving the pride in your property also means not forgetting about your decking.
Here are some of the most common decking issues –
• Loss of natural colour, with decking boards turning grey or silver over time
• Build up of moss, mildew or mould that makes wood slippery
• Decking that is cracking, peeling and flaking off
Before you even consider any maintenance it’s important to first look at the positioning of the decking.
For example a south facing decking will face the full brunt of the summer sun, which in turn could cause fading in colour.
Whereas decking that is partially shaded by parts of your plants and flowers may be subject to mould and algae due to damp conditions and falling leaves.
