Your waterproof deck Coating is not just a functional addition to your outdoor space; it’s an investment in the long-term durability and aesthetics of your deck. To ensure that it remains in top condition for years to come, proper maintenance is key. Here are some essential tips to help you preserve the integrity and appearance of your waterproof deck coating.

1. Cleaning with TSP: 

Regular cleaning is essential to keep your waterproof deck coating looking its best and performing optimally. However, not all cleaning products are suitable for this purpose. Choose trisodium phosphate (TSP), a powerful yet gentle cleaner that helps removes dirt, grime, and debris without damaging the coating. When cleaning your deck, dilute TSP according to the manufacturer’s instructions and follow all safety precautions before using. Apply TSP evenly using a soft-bristle brush or a pressure washer on a low setting or follow recommend application method on manufacturer’s instructions. Rinse thoroughly with clean water to remove any residue and allow the deck to dry completely before applying any sealants or coatings. Cleaning with TSP will prevent dirt and debris from accumulating and compromising the integrity of your deck coating, ensuring its longevity and performance over time.

2. Refreshing the Sealant: 

The sealant is a crucial component of your waterproof deck coating, providing an additional layer of protection against moisture, UV rays, and other environmental factors. Over time, the sealant may degrade due to exposure to the elements and regular use, diminishing its effectiveness. To maintain optimal protection use Life Specialty Coating 4000, 4001 or 4002 series and consider refreshing the sealant every 3 years. Before applying a new coat of sealant, thoroughly clean the deck surface to remove any dirt, grease, or mildew. Allow the deck to dry completely, then apply the sealant evenly using a paint roller or brush, following the manufacturer’s instructions. Pay special attention to high-traffic areas and areas prone to water exposure, ensuring thorough coverage for maximum protection. Allow the sealant to cure fully before allowing foot traffic or placing furniture on the deck. By refreshing the sealant regularly, you can prolong the life of your waterproof deck coating.

3. Annual Inspections: 

Regular inspections are paramount to prevent minor issues from snowballing into major problems. Schedule an annual inspection to thoroughly examine your deck coating for any signs of wear, tear, or damage. This proactive approach allows you to address potential issues promptly, saving you from costly repairs down the line, especially during inclement weather.

By following these maintenance tips, you can extend the life of your waterproof deck coating and enjoy its benefits for years to come. Remember, a little care goes a long way in preserving the beauty and functionality of your outdoor space. Invest the time and effort now to save yourself from costly repairs and replacements in the future. With proper maintenance, your waterproof deck coating will continue to stand up to the elements and provide a welcoming retreat for relaxation and enjoyment. If you’d like to learn more about our products or learn more about our waterproofing systems, contact our customer service at Also, make sure to download the Life Coatings app now available in the app store.
