If you’re are going to prepare your external wooden surface for winter, you need to get a move on! Most people tend to have their surfaces protected before the end of autumn, so there’s no time to waste!

Why Do I Need to Prepare My Wooden Surfaces for Winter?

If left untreated, your wooden surfaces can sustain all kinds of damage throughout winter. Sometimes, even the cold and wet atmosphere of a British autumn can cause your wooden surfaces to break down. As such, there’s no time to waste if you want to avoid these serious problems!

Failing to protect your wooden walls, patios and even wooden garden furniture can lead to a wide range of problems. Just some of the most common issues causes by the harsh winter weather can include:

  • Cracking and Blistering. 
  • Peeling and Flaking. 
  • Rotting and Warping. 

If you want to avoid these issues, it is extremely important that you choose the right kind of wood treatments. As the British weather is getting increasingly unpredictable, you need to ensure your wood is prepared to deal with any difficult atmosphere.

Can Wooden Surfaces Suffer Damage In Spring and Summer?

While we’re carping on about winter damage, it is useful to note that both summer and spring can damage your wooden surfaces. The hot temperature and bright sunshine (containing potential harmfully UV rays!), when combined with spontaneous rainfall and thunder storms, can all cause wooden surfaces to suffer damage.

In addition to preparing your wood from the effects of the winter, this is also a great opportunity to carry out some essential TLC.

Why Is Winter Such a Problem For Wooden Surfaces and Furniture?

As we all know, water is wood’s worst enemy. It can force wooden surfaces of all kinds to swell and shrink. In many cases, it can even force the wood to twist and warp. Regular exposure to high moisture or a large amount of water can drastically shorten a wooden surface’s lifespan.

Mould is another problem for wooden surfaces in the winter. Mould can take hold of wooden surfaces extremely quickly and can lead to long-term issues and problems with structural integrity. In the winter, as soon as any surface struggling with mould freezes (or even has to deal with a light frost), it can break or easily rot away.
