Avoiding Common Composite Decking Problems
Changing weather is just one of the causes of an outdoor man-made structure to deteriorate. To make it last for a long time, any composite decking in Singapore must be properly maintained. Here are some of the most common outdoor decking problems and tips on how to avoid it.
Heat – Because weather is the number one deck problem, it is suggested to use darker colours for outdoor decking in Singapore. Dark colours can both absorb and retain heat energy longer than lighter colours. Another thing to consider is the material’s composition. Most composite decking is made with polypropylene that can usually maintain a surface temperature that is 15-20 percent cooler underfoot.
Moisture – Mold and mildew grow in any area where there is moisture. The area where mold and mildew grow does not only become ugly, they can also ruin the area where they are attached to. To avoid this, keep the decking or the balcony flooring free of dirt or any debris build up. Balcony flooring in Singapore can usually be cleaned using warm soapy water and a sponge. Just do not forget to rinse it well to keep it look pristine.
Fading – Unlike woods, composite decking mostly does not need to be painted or sanded to keep its exterior look and quality. To be able to know what type of the composite deck is made of, researching is always a must before buying. On the other hand, if research is not your thing, fading can be avoided by regularly cleaning the deck. Most composite decking materials are also backed with warranty so if replacement must be done, just consult the company where it was bought.
Giving some attention and care to the composite deck can go a long way. The Floors Emporium offers warranty that can help lengthen the life of any outdoor deck and flooring.
