Decks & Woodwork
1. Does wood splinter?
It is not unusual for wood to splinter but different types of wood have different grain patterns and densities, which make them more prone to splintering, splitting or cracking. There is no warranty/guarantee on wood.
2. How often do I need to stain or paint my deck?
Staining or painting should be done every 2 years but it really depends on the amount of shade and moisture around your woodwork. It also depends on your preference.
