Decking will lose its colour over time. But it is easy to restore colour if the deck with a new lick of paint and sealer to protect it… However, the selection of the paint matters:
- Oil or paraffin paints are a better option if you don’t want the wood decks to absorb moisture and soak up with water.
- Paint using one that has UV blockers to preventing fading or loss of colour from your decks.
- To protect your decks from wood-eating bugs, use paints laced with insecticides.
If you choose to restore the colour of your deck, ensure that use a stain-blocking oil or an alkyd primer before painting.
And when you apply the paint, use a paint roller or pump-style sprayer. Ensure you get an even coat while painting.
