Top Deck Sealing related questions

First, if your deck is brand-new, wait 30 days before sealing it. If your deck is a little older or needs repairs, work on these before you start sealing. Wash it using a power washer, let it dry for 24 hours, then sand the entire surface. Start with a 60 to 150 grit sandpaper, then use a sanding tool. This enables the deck to absorb the new sealant. Lastly, give the deck a quick sweep or vacuum.

Some tips for applying sealant or waterproofing to your deck include making sure that the surface is completely dry; using a roller, paint brush, or paint sprayer; and applying one coat at a time. It would be best if you also worked at an ideal temperature of 10 to 32 degrees Celsius - anything warmer and your sealant could evaporate instead of getting absorbed.

Staining and sealing are two very different things. Stains add colour and protect the wood from UV damage. They may offer some level of moisture protection, but not the way a proper sealant would. Sealants, on the other hand, provide moisture protection and some UV protection. They are also uncoloured. You can always ask a deck sealing specialist about finding a combined stain-and-sealant product or have them stain a deck, then seal it after two days.

It depends. If you’re using a minimal amount of pressure and only intend to remove surface debris (dirt, dust, and mould), you can get away with not sealing your deck afterwards. But if you’re using pressure that’s strong enough to remove existing sealing or let moisture seep into the wood, it’s best to seal the deck 1-3 days after intense pressure washing.

Your deck’s waterproofing can be affected by the type of wood used, your deck’s age, and the climate in your area. As a rule of thumb, you should seal or waterproof your deck every year. Some regions may get away with sealing every 2-3 years, but it’s best to work on your deck annually. If you don’t have time to do this yourself, you can always use Airtasker to find an available deck sealing specialist near you.

Usually, yes! Cleaning a deck is one of the steps taken before deck sealing, so some specialists may offer this service to make sure that it is done thoroughly. Just make sure to indicate in your task post that you’d like the Tasker to handle the pressure washing, vacuuming, and sweeping before the deck sealing begins. Got something else you need cleaned?

What do deck sealing services include?

Deck sealing usually involves preparing your deck, applying sealant, and waiting for it to cure. It sounds easy enough, but several steps must be followed to ensure your sealant does its job. When you request deck waterproofing services through Airtasker, you can expect a Tasker to bring the necessary tools and materials. And once they get to your location, they’ll follow these steps:

 

Checking the condition of your deck

First, your Tasker asks you about the age of your deck and when it was last sealed. If it’s newly built, you’ll need to wait 30 days before pre-sealing preps can begin. This is because the wood may be too wet to absorb the sealant properly. But if you go too long before sealing or reapplying sealant to the deck, you run the risk of moisture damage or UV ray damage. 

 

The deck sealing specialist also checks the weather forecast for the day you expect to seal your deck. If it rains or snows, you’ll need to wait 24 to 48 hours for the moisture to dry up.

 

Picking a product

A typical sealant is waterproof or water repellant and won’t stain or colour your deck’s wood. Sealants primarily protect against moisture damage, though they offer a degree of UV protection. 

Meanwhile, stains or paints may protect against UV and moisture damage but won’t give the type of protection a sealant can provide. 

 

Your Tasker may recommend a stain-and-sealant product that gives the deck your desired colour and offers more excellent protection from UV rays and moisture.

 

Repairing, cleaning, and sanding the deck

Your tradesperson sets out to do any repair work and cleaning before sealing the deck. If you’re having the deck sealed yearly (as recommended), this is a great time to check for any cracks or hazards. Once all this is taken care of, it’s time to clean the deck. Your Tasker uses a power washer to clean every surface of the deck, then lets it dry for 24 hours. You may ask a Tasker to include cleaning in their quotation.

 

After the deck is clean and dry, your Tasker sands down the deck. This step makes the sealant adhere better to the surface. It also gets rid of any spots of old sealant to ensure an even, thorough coating. Finally, the Tasker will need to sweep or vacuum the deck to eliminate any sanded-off bits. For newly-built decks, your Tasker can skip the other steps and goes straight to sweeping and vacuuming. 

 

Sealing the deck

Finally, it’s time to apply the waterproofing material! The Tasker goes one thin coat at a time, lets it dry for 24 hours, then applies another coat if necessary. If you need help with other fixer-uppers in the house, a nearby Tasker can lend a hand. You can use our platform to find plumbers and even painters in your area to improve your home overall.
