Protect a Deck from Moisture

If you have a deck outside your home, then it is vital to protect the materials from sunlight, moisture and insects. It is possible to apply coating solutions to plain wood, or you can stain or paint the wood first. There are benefits from applying a coating over paint or stain because the sealants help to protect the stain and paint from the damages of weather, heat and ultraviolet rays. The majority of decking materials lay flat, making it easy for moisture from morning dew and rain to rest on the wood on a daily basis. Small amounts of moisture begin to seep into the wood, causing decay such as warping and splitting.
