Wood finishes face many elements that attempt to destroy them. The sun is the most damaging. Ultra Violet Radiation breaks down the surface layer of the cell wall material; the first sign of this deterioration is “Graying” of the wood.
Wood also faces a constant wet-dry cycle, swelling when wet and shrinking when dry. The heat of the summer and cold temperatures of the winter also contribute to this damage. The result of these conditions is usually cracking and splitting of the wood.
Debris between the spaces of boards prevents water run-off, thus allowing for mold, mildew and other wood rotting fungi to further destroy the wood.
