Your Guide to Winter Decking Maintenance

As the leading supplier of decking across Shropshire and Staffordshire, Weston Sawmill knows a lot about keeping it looking spectacular, even in winter.

This is why we have put together this handy guide with plenty of information on decking maintenance during the coldest months of the year.

7 Essential Decking Maintenance Tasks

  1. Clear Debris – Autumn and winter can bring plenty of debris such as fallen leaves, twigs, moss and rubbish onto your decking. If left unattended, these organic materials will start to rot down, eventually creating a mulch which can penetrate the wood and lead to rot. We would advise grabbing a broom once or twice a month and sweeping up any debris from the decking area and put it in the composter or garden bin.
  2. Remove Any Planters or Seating – If you have heavyweight planters or seating, we would advise removing them from the decking and putting them in storage. If left out, they will create damp spots on the decking, underneath where they are placed. This leads to a build-up of moisture in this particular area which also leads to rot.
  3. Keep An Eye on Mould Build-Ups – Decking is one of the ideal environments for mould and mildew growth and build-ups. As it is situated close to the ground, water and moisture can quickly seep into the timber plus rainfall can, in some cases, settle. Other troublesome areas include the cracks and spaces between two boards. We would recommend giving this area a thorough clean to prevent any build-ups.
  4. Thorough Cleaning Process – A thorough cleaning of decking is needed in winter. For removing fallen debris that is too stubborn to move with a broom, try some hot and soapy water and elbow grease to get rid of it. Now you will need to pressure wash the surface to further clean the area and then scrub areas where dirt or moss have built up. The best way to prevent deterioration is by keeping your decking surface dirt-free.
  5. Remove Any Pet Fouling – If you have a dog or cat, make sure you clear up any mess they make on your decks as this can damage and stain the wood plus it can spread into other areas after rainfall. Another preventative method could be a temporary barrier or decorative fencing to stop them getting into this area.
  6. Paint with Timber Treatment – Wood preservatives are of the best ways to make sure your decking is long-lasting. Before applying treatment, check if the surface is clean and dry and remove any existing wood stain or paint. If any parts of your decks have started to deteriorate then you can always sand back to a better-quality surface. When the area is prepared sufficiently, apply the timber treatment with a brush and make sure it covers all the gaps and cracks.
  7. Apply Water Repellent – Roughly 3 days to a week after applying timber treatment, Weston Sawmill recommends applying a water repellent to help improve your decking’s life expectancy. Once applied, the wood is protected from moisture which also prevents the wood from decay. If left untreated, water will collect in cracks or gaps and will eventually penetrate the wood. Once trapped inside this will begin to cause rot.

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.
