Deck Restoration Sunshine Coast –
Replacement & Repair

Do you have a new deck on the Sunshine Coast which needs to be preserved or is your existing deck looking neglected and requires a new facelift? Maybe a deck refreshment is all your deck needs to get it looking amazing and ensure that is can withstand the harsh outdoor climate. The difference between a refresh (restoration) and a replace is heavily influenced by the condition of the existing decking boards and the quality of the initial construction. A simple deck inspection from one of our Sunshine Coast deck builders will reveal if the decking can be restored or if it has past its due by date.

New Deck – Inital Coating System

New timber decks need a protective coating to ensure they can withstand the outdoor elements. New timber is full of tannin and oils, these need to be removed either naturally (time+water) or by using specific products before any decking oil or stain can be applied. If they are not properly removed from the timber, tannins and oils can cause a patchy appearance, and will compromise the longevity of a coating by affecting its absorption and adhesion to the timber. There are often industry debates around the topic of oiling timber; should it be done before or after laying? Should all faces or just the top face be oiled?Should oiling be completed immediately or should the timber weather?

Our recommendation to achieve a superior protection and all round coating is:

  1. Select the right species of timber for the right location
  2. Apply a manufactures all round coating prior to delivery
  3. Install the decking boards
  4. For timber species with large amounts of tannin use Intergrain PowerPrep
  5. Wash decking with Intergrain Reviva
  6. Finish with UltraDeck
  7. Sit back and enjoy your new deck

    Existing Deck – Restoration Or Refresh

    A timber deck requires a quality coating system to provide protection from the harsh outdoor elements. A deck coating system will enhance the timbers performance and extend its lifespan during the ongoing battle with sun and rain. Pending on the location and exposure of your timber deck, will depend on how often your deck protection coating needs to be refreshed

    Replacement Coating

    A failing deck protection coating can look unsightly and will increase the chances of premature timber failure. These coatings need to be stripped right back using products or sanding the timber to return the surface back to bare timber. If dome head nails have been using during the construction, then sanding the deck is not an option. For bullet head nails, screws or clip systems the deck can be sanded using professional sanding equipment. Once the deck has been restored back to bare timber, a new coating system can then be applied, usually requiring an initial 3 coat system. Once the new coating has been completed the deck is back to full strength and should be reviewed every 3 months to assess its next ‘top up’ application.

    Refresh Coating

    Deck protection coatings that are in order and simply need to be ‘topped up’, require a simple surface clean followed by 1 coat of the product initially used. Mixing different products may cause the coatings to react and prematurely fail. Once the new coating has been finished the deck is back to full strength and should be reviewed every 3 months to assess its next application.

    For all our decks we support and use the Intergrain product to achieve great results which have been proven to stand the test of the harsh Australian climate.
