Deck Max Maintenance

The first and most important issue with care and maintenance is your selection of fixings. I have recently completed the refurbishing of 3 decks in the one residence and the outcomes for all three were different.

NOTE: All decks were laid with a few years of each other.

1

This was an outstanding outcome BECAUSE it was laid with Deck-Max secret fixing. The deck had not being treated , cleaned or anything for 8 + years and I simply washed with our Special deck cleaner – Gurney off the deck – allow to dry – poly-vac (Sanding machine) the surface – then coated with oil ready and brand new after 24 hours.

2

Very large area – was nailed and screwed – WELL, I could not sand it so my question was how to bring the surface back – well I tried to use paint stripper twice and gurney off the paint – that did not work – I could not get back to clean wood so the painter suggested the only option was to paint it – it refreshed it but if they had used Deck-Max clips it would be simple as poly-vac sand the entire surface and repeat the process of Deck 1 – The Moral of this deck is – If I had used Deck-Max fixings I could have SIMPLY sanded it and re oiled it and back to new !!!! A very BIG lesson to learn before you spend thousands of dollars..

3

In 5 Years – Good hardwood screwed down with what I believed was correct decking screws – well they were rusted, rotten where the screw went through the wood and the joists were rotten in places as the screw hole was the conduit for the water to penetrate – OH BOY, what a disaster! The timber was so bad it had to be removed and replaced – This cost saving day one backfired after a while and we could not refurbish the deck – No long term saving at all, in fact in 5 Years It has cost the owner nearly double the price as it had to be completely replaced.

It is often asked – “How often should I re-coat the deck?”.

A decking oil treatment and maintenance program is essential and should be applied and monitored for the preservation of the decking.
Deck coatings
Refer to the manufacturers’ specifications for each product. They come in many styles and please choose carefully as the outcomes vary a lot.
Deck-Max products are UV stable
So full sun does not affect the fixings but the sun does have an effect of your decking boards.
Deck-Max is Chemical Resistant to oxalic acids and normal deck cleaning solutions
so you can freely wash your deck down with any of the deck clean products – always refer to manufacturers specifications. We recommend our “Pro Clean” as an outstanding cleaner for all materials – Composite and Hardwood.
Clear film coating should be avoided as they will limit the effect on protecting your hardwood decking.
