Thermowood decking boards don’t require surface treatment. Like any wood, the surface of thermally modified wood naturally turn silver-gray over time – this process starts immediately and can take anything from a few months to a few years depending on the levels of UV radiation they’re exposed to. However, this does not make the wood less durable. If you want to preserve the wood’s original color, or change it, you can do so by treating the products with a UV-protection oil 1-2 times per year. Unlike teak that you need wash weekly and to treat with acid several times per year to keep the surface in perfect appeal.
- We recommend cleaning and maintaining the deck before the yachting summer season.
- Lightly sanding faded boards will remove the silvery surface colour and restore the wood’s original appearance.
- If you would like to preserve or change the tone of thermally modified wood, apply UV-resistant oil to the deck once a year.
