What to do with Old Decking

Re-varnishing old wooden decking

Natural wood decking needs a good varnish every year to maintain it in tip-top condition. This is especially true for Singapore’s weather. The hot sunny weather coupled with sudden rain can mean that the decking is subject to a lot of expansion and contraction within a short period of time. But what if you’ve neglected your decking for a few years?

The wood stain might have peeled off due to wear and tear, and the wood might even have cracked, sometimes resulting in splinters.

When this happens, the decking needs a good sanding down and re-varnishing.
