Home Living : October 13th 2009
2 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, October 13, 2009 Spring cleaning HOMELIVING Paint & decorate Tony Isgrove Painter, decorator, and president of the Master Painters Association How is your deck lookingafter winter? Is it tired, dull and mouldy? Is it a slip hazard? Now is the time to rectify these problems before summer. These simple steps will keep your deck tip-top for months. Protect you deck from the sun, which not only fades the colour of the timber but also dries it. It then absorbs more rain, leading to rot. Water can fill edges, nail or screw holes, splits, knots and cracks. Check for water damage or rot by poking with apen or similar object. Important areas to check for rot are: Nail or screw holes for early signs The ends of the boards The joists, by lifting some flooring Before you stain, ensure the surface is clean, dry and free of mildew. Otherwise the stain might have trouble stickingand could even end uppeeling. Sweep the deck to remove all leaves and debris. You might also have to clean the space between the decking timber. If your deck has not been stained for a while, the timber maybegrey, so use an oxalic acid timber cleaner. You'll find this at a hardware or paint shop. Follow the instructions. Once dry, sand then apply two coats of timber stain or decking oil.
