This is how to prevent wood rot on your deck.
Do you want to learn how to prevent wood rot on your deck? I have an easy solution for new and old decks. This method for protecting new and existing wood structural surfaces is a fast and easy project to do. It’s not a messy product and you don’t need special tools to use it. It literally creates a barrier between your wood surfaces so that water can’t penetrate. Water is the number one culprit of deck rot and since we all get rain, you don’t want to miss this solution.
Have you done a deck inspection lately?
It’s easy to spot issues with the decking material that you walk on and see everyday. I consider the surface of the deck to be easily replaceable. The major and more difficult issues to address occur underneath the deck, throughout structure. It’s a great idea to inspect the ledger boards (the boards that attach to the house), the structural beams (the large beams that support the weight) and the joists (the wood that holds the decking) on an annual basis. If you have issues, they will be readily apparent. Look for water damage, dark spots, fungus and holes.
This solution is simple and inexpensive.
When you learn how to prevent wood rot on your deck, you may decide to take action before issues even start. If you don’t have to replace any wood, this project is neat and tidy. Best yet, it works on all types of pressure treated wood, including structural composite lumber. I’m demonstrating this product on a giant treated Glulum beam. It’s the main structural beam that holds up my deck. If you watch this video, you’ll see how easy it is to extend the life of your deck for decades to come.
