Outdoor Wood Deck Coatings for Seattle Homeowners
Seattle is known for being one of the rainiest cities in America, yet the city only takes in about 38 inches of rainfall each year, ranking about 44th in terms of total annual precipitation. The misconception lies in the fact that Seattle doesn’t receive a higher amount of total rain, but has a greater number of days with precipitation (about 158 days per year). It might rain in Seattle for hours at a time, but it usually comes in the form of a prolonged light drizzle, rather than an all-out downpour. With so much moisture constantly lurking in the air, outdoor furnishings like wooden decks and furniture need to be coated in a strong protective material so that colors don’t fade and the wood doesn’t become waterlogged. For the largest and highest-rated selection of outdoor coatings, the team at Encore has developed some of the most durable products to keep your deck looking fresh all year long.
Advanced Weatherproofing Formula
Moisture and high humidity can cause your deck to undergo huge changes. As a flexible material, wood can expand or contract depending on the outside temperature, which can cause the deck to gradually bend and become misshapen over time. Exposure to large amounts of moisture (like prolonged precipitation in Seattle) can cause the inside of wood to become weak and soft, making it susceptible to scratches, chips, and rapid deterioration.
