sap bleeding on deck


I asked this question before, but can't find the answers I received. I recently stained my pt deck with SW Deckscapes solid stain. I brushed on two coats. Looks great. Is wearing well, but the sap or resin or whatever it is, is showing up all over. What do I need to do to remove it, and keep it at bay? Thanks.

sap bleeding on deck


Sap from a tree in the yard or sap from the wood used for the deck? Is the wood new?

sap bleeding on deck


The deck was installed in 07. I stained it 2-3 months ago after pressure washing. The sap is oozing from the deck boards randomly across the surface.

You have likely had some really really hot days in the past couple of weeks that have caused the sap to come out of the wood.

Gently scrape it off.

And I don't think you can stop it from occuring again. But eventually, the sap will stop running.

sap bleeding on deck


My deck was replaced in mid 2012 and sap continues to ooze from the deck boards. The service my homeowner's association hired believes it is due to the type of stain that was applied. The deck was power washed on August 4 and it looks like the wash actually intensified the sap. According to your answer to another person and articles I read online, the sap will eventually run out. It has been two years and the sap continues to rear its ugly head from spring to fall through all of the deck boards. I think the deck boards need to be replaced.

If the deck boards are replaced with treated wood, how long should I wait before the stain is applied?

Thanks!

If you replace the boards, maybe consider composite deck boards. Although more expensive at the outset, it should more than pay for itself by not requiring as much maintenance as wood decking. I don't have a deck but if I did, I would definitely choose composite over wood.

Here's an excerpt from a thisoldhouse webpage:

"Long on life span and short on fuss, these man-made boards never splinter, rot, or need staining. The TOH team explains everything you need to know about selecting, installing, and caring for this thoroughly modern material."

They also have some downsides,
in hot weather they become very hot to walk on
more expensive to buy
more expensive to install 12" centers
color tends to fade

The cost is not a consideration for me but I didn't realize that they become very hot to walk on. Thanks for pointing that out.
