Q. I noticed after my deck was stripped of the old product, some parts of the deck looks “fuzzy”, Is this normal?
A. Yes, lignin is the natural glue in the wood that keeps the wood fibers together. When a deck is stripped, the lignin is broken down, causing the wood fibers to stand up. This is a normal occurrence and over time, the “fuzziness” will naturally diminish.
Q. Why is wood adversely affected by the weather?
A. Left unprotected, wood suffers photo degradation by ultraviolet light (sunlight); leaching (water absorption into wood components); hydrolysis (as in acid rain attack) shrinking and swelling caused by water absorption into and evaporation from the wood; and finally discoloration and degradation by decay promoting micro-organisms.
