It’s that time of year again!  The sun is showing itself more and more often, you’re getting anxious for summer vacations, family barbeques, and just relaxing outside on your deck and enjoying the sweet smell of summer in the Northwest.

Question is… is it time to recoat that deck again?

Maintenance of your deck is the single most important thing in keeping the wood conditioned and protected from the NW winters.  Typically in the Pacific NW, a decks horizontal surface should be recoated every 2-3 years depending on exposure to weather. The vertical rails and such can go a little longer.  Is your deck partially covered?  To keep those uncovered areas looking as good as the others this is crucial to keep up on.


How do you know it’s really time to recoat?  Well, it should be weathered. Visually inspect the surface coating and when it appears faded and spray the surface with water.  If it penetrates and turns the wood dark due to the moisture, this is an indication that it’s time for a new coat. If it still repels water you do not need to recoat at this time.

Keeping up on this ritual is the most important thing to ensure your deck lasts for season’s to come.
