Your backyard can be a source of pride, an escape, the ultimate party spot, or a bit of an embarrassment. We’ve seen backyards that are totally unkempt, lacking walkways, decks, seating, or any visual decoration. We’ve seen backyards that would rival the Taj Mahal. Each backyard is unique, because it represents the family or group living there. What does your say?
One of the most common features in a backyard is a deck of some sort. Wood decks are incredibly common, and we urge those with wood decks to consider waterproofing. Why? Because without waterproofing your deck, you’re just waiting for a world of decay. It’s just a matter of time.
Wood is porous and susceptible to water damage, so it can weaken, warp, split, and invite infestations of termites and other pests. Wood can also cause splinters and cuts from fraying wood or chipping paint. Over time, water can dull the color and quality of the wood, making it look old and worn down. It’s best to look for waterproof coatings to prevent the wear and tear that can come from water damage.
Waterproofing your deck not only keeps the surface bright and safe, but also prevents structural issues on the underside of the deck, the supports, and even the ground below the deck. You’d be surprised how much water damage can affect areas of the deck with which you’re not in direct eyesight.
There are several options for waterproofing your deck. First, you can coat it with waterproof substances. Cheaper options are available in forms of paints, sealants, or varnishes. More serious coatings are available from professionals like our trustworthy experts at Hard Rock Concrete Coatings. We can carefully coat your deck in a waterproof sealant that will keep your deck dry and beautiful for years to come, despite those deep Utah winter snows.
If your deck is already in a state of disrepair, you can rebuild your deck or add waterproof tiles or panels over the existing wood. It’s best to consult an expert before beginning, as the integrity of your deck depends on structural safety. This project can be a great do-it-yourself for your family one weekend, or you can enlist the help of Hard Rock Concrete Coatings if you’re looking to get it done quickly and efficiently. We offer competitive pricing and a reputation you can trust.
