The Best Time of Year for Deck Maintenance 

Melbourne Deck Maintenance

Deck maintenance is more than just aesthetic, it’s about preserving your deck’s lifespan and ensuring safety. If you’re a homeowner in Melbourne, particularly in regions like the Mornington Peninsula, Frankston, and Bayside, you’ve experienced firsthand the ebb and flow of our weather and four seasons in a day lifestyle. This ever-changing climate can wreak havoc on our beloved outdoor spaces, especially timber decks. So, when is the right time to breathe new life into that weathered timber? 

Understanding Melbourne’s Climate Impact on Your Deck 

Living in Melbourne presents us with a diverse range of weather conditions. While spring and summer are generally prime times for deck maintenance, it’s essential to understand how different seasons can impact the timber. Winter can be particularly harsh on decks, with the constant cold and wet conditions. On the other hand, the heat of summer can exacerbate the damage on an ill-maintained deck. 

With over 25 years of industry experience, Clint, the owner of Quicksand Flooring, has seen firsthand the impact of Melbourne’s seasons on timber decks. It’s no surprise that he and his team recommend homeowners to opt for deck restoration during the spring and summer months. 

Why Spring and Summer are Optimal for Deck Maintenance 

  • Better Weather Conditions: The drier and warmer climate of these seasons is conducive to the restoration process. It allows products like stains and sealers to adhere better and dry faster. 
  • Prevention: Summer heat can worsen an already damaged deck. By conducting maintenance in the preceding spring, you can ensure that your deck is summer-ready. 
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Let’s face it, we spend more time outdoors during these months. A freshly restored deck enhances the overall appeal of your outdoor space.
