Membrane Coatings vs Oiling
Oil based coatings such as linseed and lanolin oil are absorbed into timber whereas solid coatings leave a solid membrane on the surface, similar to a coat of paint. Whilst these coatings can initially provide a good appearance, timber outdoors continuously swells and shrinks causing a surface coating to flake and break away. This leads to more extensive deck maintenance in the future. We therefore recommend to all of our customers to use oils such as Deck Doc to treat their decks.
Sanding vs Pressure Cleaning
Whilst sanding is a great method of removing old membrane coatings and preparing your deck. High pressure water cleaning also provides great results and is more cost effective in terms of labour and equipment required for the job. As Deck Doc’s example illustrates below for sanding and oiling a 40m2 deck, we can provide the same service by pressure washing for more than 70% off that price. It is then easy for yourself or us to provide the ongoing maintenance of applying the next coating for a similar price mentioned in the video.
