Timber deckings are those outdoor wooden floors often used for entertaining. They are usually attached to the house, and are often under some light roof covering. Though they are quite exposed to the outdoor elements a timber deck can last for decades if properly built and well looked after.
People often enjoy the outdoor experience of a timber deck. They combine the natural environment and fresh air with furniture and a firm floor. They are easily made to compliment both the house and the surrounding natural landscape, being available in many types of wood and finish. Australian weather is well suited to the outdoor lifestyle an external decking offers.
Decking Timber Sanding Sydney
For all the durability provided by wood all outdoor decking is constantly exposed to the elements. Sun and rain will steadily take their toll. A well-designed timber deck, made from solid wood and either oiled of lacquered, will last far longer than a poorly built, poorly maintained one. But no timber decking will last forever. Some periodical service will be required.
If the surface of your timber decking is showing signs of wear, if water soaks into the wood rather than runs off the surface, or if the planks start to buckle, then it is time to have the surface sanded. The underlying wood of most timber decks is usually quite sound. Re-sanding the surface give the outdoor decking a new lease on life. If the oil or top coating is good a timber deck can be re-sanded about once per decade to provide a lifetime of reliable service.
