Wood Deck Resurfacing Ideas

Trying to resurface your wooded deck, but have no idea what to do with it, well it may seem like a difficult job, but that does not mean there is nothing to do. It is possible and there is many different options depending on what your deck is made of. So read up, grab those materials and make that deck beautiful again.

Key Takeaways:

  • The exotic hardwoods are some of the hardest to install because many of them are so hard and dense, you have to pre-drill all the fastener holes.
  • Treated wood currently is the least expensive material to use, but it can’t resist the punishing effects of the ultraviolet (UV) light of the sun.
  • Composite decking is a blend of wood fiber and plastic. The top wear surface and the edges are capped with a virgin vinyl that has coloration to simulate real wood graining.

“If you don’t seal treated lumber with some coating, the UV light will destroy the natural color pigments and the lignin that bonds the wood fibers together.”
