Winter Proofing Your Decking

Taking Care of Your Decking in Staffordshire

You might be pleased to know, we are only a few short months away from the sun glimmering over your back garden expertly showcasing your perfectly maintained decking. The main challenge facing any respectful decking owner in Staffordshire is successfully navigating the trials and tribulations of the winter period.

Whilst many of us can not wait for the return of this sociable time, there are still a lot of hurdles we have to overcome to return to barbecues with family and friends. 

We have recently focused on efforts to mitigate the effects of winter on your fencing in Staffordshire so we thought why not look at how we can ensure your decking is in the best shape possible throughout the winter. 


Your car windscreens are not the only things that will need de-icing this winter, your decking will as well. 

Having a frost and ice covered decking can create many problems. Besides the fact that ice can potentially cause damage to the finishing of your decking, it can produce a quite significant slipping hazard. 

One of the best ways to combat this is by applying mild de-icing salts. The salts can include potassium chloride before the frost has even had time to form. However, you should only enact this technique if you have had your decking water sealed. 

Water Sealing

Following on from our most recent point, you should ensure your decking is efficiently water sealed. 

Deck sealers (as they are called amongst those involved in the industry) penetrate the wood and offer a protective coating against water absorption. Not only does this give you incredible flexibility when it comes to treating your wood. But it protects against the formation of mold, rot and any other potential damage.

Clean Thoroughly 

This one might seem like a no brainer but correctly and thoroughly cleaning your decking is an essential ingredient in decking maintenance. 

You will want to make sure that your decking is cleaned properly with soap, water and preferably a high power pressure washer. 

Additionally, if you have pets you will want to make ensure any potential fouling is removed promptly and effectively. This helps to prevent stains and the build-up of potentially harmful bacteria.

The Advantages of Adding Decking to your Home

Decking is a fantastic and eye catching way to update your garden, not only in the Wolverhampton and Staffordshire area, but also around the rest of the UK. Not only does decking look aesthetically pleasing, it can also have many other advantages.

Add value to your home

One advantage you may not think about is that decking increases the value of your house. According to some experts, you are able to get back around 72% of the costs of building a deck by the overall amount of the value it will add to your home. This makes decking a great choice if you are planning to sell your home, and as our wood is long-lasting, it will still be in tact if you ever decide to.

Creating a Beautiful sun deck

Raised decking can be used to create a sun deck in the garden. Even though the weather isn’t always on our side in Wolverhampton and Staffordshire, when it is you will get the benefit of full sun on a surface which is comfortable to lie on, and doesn’t absorb too much heat, meaning it is isn’t too hot to walk on.

Hard-wearing pressure-treated wood

Another advantage of our pressure-treated wood we use for decking is that improves the wood’s resistance to weathering and insects, ensuring your decking is hard-wearing and doesn’t need as much treatment as other wooden decking.

Evens out and tidies up gardens

Finally, decking and raised flower beds are a great way to balance out the most uneven gardens, and also hide the not-so charming garden features such as inspection covers. Also, as long as you put membrane underneath your decking, no weeds will come through the cracks, ensuring the only plants in your garden are the ones you planted.
