Wooden decking is unrivaled by other materials when it comes to attractiveness and practicality. Wooden decking can transform your garden into a paradise as it blends in very well with the natural landscape.
Best woods for wooden decking
There are many types of timber that can be used to construct decks. The most common woods used include pressure treated Pine, Cedar, Redwood, Cypress, Larch and Mahogany. Decks made from pressure treated wood, which is the cheapest option available in the market, are known to last for at least 15 years. Cedar and Redwood decking on the other hand can last for as long as 20 years and what's more they provide a natural defense against rot and insect pests. However, they tend to grey after prolonged exposure to the sun.
If you are willing to spend on timber that will last even longer then you should opt for the various exotic woods that are offered in the market. Although they are much more expensive, they are durable, strong and have an appealing grain. You can choose from a wide range of timber including Ipe, Cambara, Cumaru, Golden Ironwood, Tigerwood, Tamarack, Red Balau and Garapa.
Wooden decking care
If you want your wooden decking to look attractive for a long period of time then you will have to put some effort into maintaining it or else the continuous exposure to the elements of the weather will cause it to crack and rot. Even if you choose an expensive wood, yet other pollutants such as tree sap, rotting leaves and bird droppings can cause your deck to look unsightly.
As such, you will need to clean and seal your wooden decking regularly. Before applying any wood sealant to your deck, you will have to clear it of any dirt or stains. Use a leaf blower if you have one, to clear off any loose fragments of dirt, rather than a broom, which won't be able to access the dirt that tends to get stuck in the cracks and crevices of the wood. Then wash the entire wooden decking with water and the cleaner that is specially sold for wood. You can then hose off the deck. Once it is dry, use a paint brush or a roller to apply the sealant and protectant. Let the deck dry completely before using it again. For proper maintenance, you will need to clean and wash your deck every few days, and apply the sealant/protective oils at least once every two to three years.
