Redwood Deck Care and Maintenance
Regarding maintenance care, redwood requires a knowledgeable approach. Being a soft wood species, it can easily be damaged. When cleaning redwood, power washing by inexperienced or untrained personnel can create a condition in the wood that may be costly to correct or replace. Sealing redwood may only be done once it has been properly prepared. Care must be taken not to disturb the tannins in the Redwood.
If you fall behind on the proper care of your redwood deck, playset, furniture or home, the results tend to be unsightly and undesirable, and may be irreversible. Future cleanings will be more technically challenging and financially costly in order to obtain the desired results. A deck is part of the assessed value of your home. The care put into it will reflect upon its appearance, longevity and future assessed value. We have the future of your redwood in mind. When you need a knowledgeable and experienced provider for your redwood care, call See Dirt Run!™ Inc.
Tinted sealers and stains offer the best UV protection for your wood. Consumers also need to be aware of the VOC changes that went into effect in 2005. These changes have had an impact on the coatings industry, and on product performance. Pressure washing your home’s brick or siding is equally important, as are other wooden items such as fences, gazebos, and playground equipment.
