10 Reasons Why We Pre-Treat Your Wood Deck with CUTEK Before We Build It

Rosario Ungaro - Wednesday, February 28, 2018

  1. It makes your deck look great at the outset, when it's redone, and over the long term; it quite simply keeps your deck looking better, longer.
  2. pre-treat with CutekCutek increases the service life of your deck.
  3. Cutek maximizes the ROI in your deck.
  4. Cutek protects your deck from water and moisture damage from the outset—before it starts—because it minimizes warping, cupping, and splitting.
  5. Pre-trearting with Cutek allows us to treat your timber on every surface, including the underside of the deck and the joints, not just the part of the deck visible and accessible once the deck is built.
  6. Cutek is more effective than traditional stains: it works different from how traditional stains work. Traditional stains coat the outside of the timber, deck boards, posts, etc., which can crack and peel, and may require sanding as part of your maintenance routine. Cutek, on the other hand diffuses (penetrates) "into" the wood—and essentially works from the inside out. As a result, if you put a screw into the deck, it isn't breaking through the protection barrier and making that area vulnerable because Cutek is already inside the wood.
  7. Cutek is easier to maintain for our deck owners. It never cracks or peels, and as mentioned, never needs sanding and never has to be stripped. 
  8. Cutek is cost effecive for our customers when you consider its impact on increasing the service life of the deck and the fact that it as about two times the coverage of other products.
  9. Cutek has been tested in the harshest of climates, from the heat of the Outback of Australia, to the coldest winters in Canada.
  10. Cutek is based on 30 years of timber protection research and experience and is the choice of many industry professionals including Benchmark Building Services Inc. In fact, we supply it to many other building professionals for their customers.

A word from Rosario…

Our Blog is about sharing some of what we have learned along the way. (Many contractors even call us for ideas or advice.) We hope it is informative and shows our commitment to continuous learning—something we do so we can bring the very latest and best to our customers. 

You've probably heard the phrase: 

"Some people have twenty-five years of experience. Others have one year of experience, twenty-five times over." 

If a contractor doesn't stay up-to-date on the latest building codes, trends, styles, tools, materials, and products, they'll soon find themselves in the latter category. We work hard to make sure that we are not. We regularly talk with our suppliers, go to industry trade shows, and share information and ideas with our peers to make sure that we stay on top of our game and can continue to bring you the very best in building craftsmanship and knowledge.

I welcome the opportunity to chat with you about your next building project.
