It is no secret that water is usually a main enemy of wood and that having your deck waterproofed can be a great way to help your deck cope with the elements. Our services though, go way beyond just us going in and applying different types of coating to the wood or vinyl deck to make sure that water is not going to be a factor. At times some of the best waterproofing methods are actually applied during the construction process. That being said, we are going to go over some of the ways that we use to make sure that our decks are fully waterproofed and ready to take on what is coming for them!
Why Water Proof Your Deck?
We already covered the fact that water, in general, can be very dangerous to decks or any type of wooden structure. So having it waterproofed is going to extend the overall lifespan of your deck. Not only that, but it can also make cleaning your deck a much easier process. With the proper waterproofing technique stains and dust are going to just slide clean off and won’t keep your deck from looking its best!
Sealing In Between The Cracks
When you have wooden floors there is usually going to be mini cracks at least between the pieces of wood that make up the floors. The best way to make sure that these tiny cracks or spaces don’t become a major problem down the road is to apply waterproof seal in between them. This will not only help counteract the effects of water on the surface it can also make for smoother floors that become more comfortable to walk on! We can use different types of products in this process to make sure that we are paring the surface with the best product available on the market to seal it off.
Issues With Mold Growth
One of the main reasons that people stop using their decks on a regular basis is the presence of mold on their decks! A lot of times decks become areas that actually promote mold growth. What we need to do is try and counteract a lot of the factors that are going to contribute to mold growth. When things get totally out of hand we may need to come in and remove the mold before we can actually apply any type of coating to waterproof the deck. In any case what we want to do is make sure we give your deck a better chance of staying upright.
The Ocean Plays A Huge Role In Deck Deterioration
If you have a deck on the beach that is constantly getting hit by the waves and the sand it is going to be almost impossible to keep it mold free and to keep it healthy. A lot of times that is precisely the trick. Knowing how to keep a deck healthy even when it has waves hitting it on a daily basis and some mold growing on it. Knowing how to balence the mold growth is something that we could totally help you with!
