Facts About Decking

January 24th, 2011

Here are some interesting facts about decking…

“Approximately 1/2 the homes in the United States have a wooden deck, siding, fencing, or roof. Without protection wood rapidly deteriorates from the following elements:

  • Water. Water is absorbed into the wood and washes out the natural wood resins and color. Freezing/thaw cycles can splinter and crack the wood. Also water promotes algae, mold, and mildew growth and rotting.
  • Sun Light. Ultraviolet (UV) rays bleaches the wood fibers and breaks down the cell structure.
  • Mold, Mildew, Algae, and Fungus. Wood and moisture are a natural food source for mold, mildew, algae, and fungus. This generally causes a black, green or gray discoloration.
  • Contamination. Contamination comes in the form of food, dirt, atmospheric pollution, etc. This is a good food source for Mold, Mildew, Algae, and Fungus.”
