Nous allons regarder aujourd’hui comment tacher votre terrasse de la manière facile. Gardez les choses à la recherche nette et lisse pour les parties de jardin à venir.

Bases de terrasse

 

Les terrasses en bois continuent de gagner en popularité. C’est une merveilleuse façon de créer des zones séparées dans votre jardin, en particulier pour les barbecues ou la cuisine et la détente à l’extérieur.

Si vous voulez que votre decking vous donne le meilleur d’elle-même, vous devrez la nettoyer régulièrement.

It also pays to use a treatment every 2 or 3 years. It largely depends on the spot you choose and whether or not your patio is sheltered or exposed to the elements.

When you install your patio for the first time, you can wait a few months before applying a treatment.

Equipment for staining decking

 

 

If you want to stain your patio without creating a mess, protective clothing and gloves are essential.

Get the following databases sorted and you’re good to go …

  • Dungarees
  • Protective gloves
  • Glasses
  • Stain or treatment
  • Roller
  • Roller tray
  • Roller tray
  • Roller tray
  • 2-3 inch paintbrush
  • Leaves
  • Masking tape
  • Glass paper
  • Stain remover (optional)

Si vous optez pour un rouleau, vous aurez évidemment faire le travail plus rapidement. L’inconvénient des rouleaux, c’est qu’ils ont tendance à être assez désordonné.

L’utilisation d’une brosse sera plus lente mais plus précise et plus propre.

Si vous êtes dans ce pour le long terme, envisager d’investir dans un pad avec une poignée longue. Cela vous facilitera la vie.

Quel est le meilleur traitement pour la plate-forme?

Il n’y a pas de bonne ou de mauvaise réponse à ça.

De nombreux facteurs influenceront la marque et le type de tache que vous voulez pour votre decking.

Vous voudrez peut-être vérifier certains avis des consommateurs pour la peinture et la tache afin que vous puissiez choisir le type le plus approprié. La plupart des gens donnent des commentaires assez honnêtes une fois qu’ils ont acheté un produit.

More or less any exterior stain of wood will do. The advantage of specialized platform treatments is that they will last longer and penetrate better.

Translucent spots tend to last longer. Opaque treatments will flake more. The same goes for deeper and richer colors.

Take your time, seek advice from friends and family, and get the most appropriate treatment.

And before we start …

Try a test patch so that you don’t end up making the wrong decision and getting a color that just doesn’t look good on larger canvas.

Preparation

You will need pipe on your patio first so that it is nice and clean. If you have a power washer, this is another good option. If the deck is dirty, the stain will not adhere properly so it is worth cleaning it well.

Some oxygen bleach cleaners are handy for getting rid of any stubborn or persistent blemishes and marks.

If you have an older stain that needs to be removed first, a stripper is an extremely practical piece of kit. They can be quite toxic. Make sure you take all necessary precautions and work safely.

Sand all the flaws and finish using sandpaper for a large foundation.

Clear all the garden furniture and everything that will get in your way while you apply the stain.

Where do you start to stain?

Start by coloring the rails or railings on your patio. If you start at the top and work at the bottom, you can erase all the drops as you progress.

When you start applying treatment at the platform, make sure you have a return route. Go to the furthest edge and work inside out. This will keep you from needing to step on freshly stained wood to spoil the effect.

When should you stain your decking?

Many people don’t think about cooling their garden until the weather starts to pick up. Thoughts of pulling up the barbecue and inviting friends for dinner and drinks often invite action.

Staining when the weather is cold or freezing is not a wise idea. The treatment simply won’t dry out properly.

Working in the rain is an obvious no-no. The stain will wash off before it has had a chance to set. Although avoiding rain is difficult in some countries, watch the forecast. Be patient. Don’t waste your time and effort trying to get there in the rain.

Direct sunlight is not good either. It could force the stain to dry too quickly leading to uneven and uneven coverage.

You want a dry terrace and a dry day for the best result.

How to stain your decking

However, you choose to apply the majority of the treatment, start with a brush and take care of all the borders.

Continue with the brush or switch to a roller.

You should always work in the direction of the grain. Keep a wet edge so that you will not get darker spots with the overlap. The wet edge is reached by making your way through a wet area, then brushing back again.

If you choose to use a roller, be sure to cover any gaps between the platform. For some parts, you may need to go back to the brush again.

When you apply the stain, don’t be too sparing. Do it as a doll so that it can fully penetrate the wood.

Saturate all the fine beans thoroughly. This part of the wood was cut and exposed. It will be subject to division without adequate treatment.

Instructions on the stain of your choice will help you determine if a second coat is needed. If so, apply after 24 hours.

If not, let your patio dry for the same 24 hour period, then you can start to fire up this barbecue and celebrate summer in style!
