Keep your Commercial Decks beautiful and safe
Commercial decks must be designed well, built with the right materials, and maintained with a water repellent penetrating oil regularly. Timber Queensland, our state authority, recommends this, and specifically suggests using Equisol Pro 365 for its water repellence.
If these guidelines are not followed, several problems can arise, such as
- Reduced service life of the timber structure.
- Unnecessary decking board replacement.
- Unsightly timber peeling and leaving bare timber.
- Unhealthy mould and algae growing under the water-based coatings.
- Splinter hazards on bare feet.
Timber Decks that look like it’s been painted, no timber grain exposed, peeling in parts, mould under the coatings, and evidence of timber rotting usually when a deck is 5-7 years old.
we offer a full restoration service for timber decks that have experienced these problems
We chemically strip the previously failed timber coating, sand to prepare with specialized sanders that do not require nails to be punched or damage any fixing screws. We also use Equisol Null to reduce the mould and algae spores. We then apply our unique 2-stage timber prep system using Equisol Prime to extract the tannin and clean the timber, and Equisol Vitalise cleaning process to brighten and sterilize the timber. Finally, we apply two coats of Equisol 365 with a colour tone to match the timber, and for the natural matte look that emphasizes the timber grain, which most architects today specify.
By following proper guidelines and maintaining your timber structure, you can avoid costly problems and extend its service life. If you do encounter problems, ATDM can help you reverse the damage with our full restoration service.
