Wood decks look great when they are new but if they aren't maintained or are neglected that can quickly look old and dilapidated. If your wood deck is looking faded or the paint or stain has begun peeling or flaking away then it's probably time to consider refinishing it. Refinishing or restaining your wood deck can restore it's natural beauty and add years to the life of your deck.

Refinishing your deck is much less expensive than rebuilding it but it's still a difficult and time consuming process to do it right. There are a lot of painters out there doing decks because the money can be fast but it shouldn't be. Refinishing a deck properly takes care and attention, especially during the preparation phase to ensure your new deck paint or stain lasts for many years.

Our process for renewing an old damaged deck include:
Cleaning The Deck Surfaces: Thorough preparation is the key to restoring your wood deck to a like new condition. Depending on our analysis, your deck may receive either a chemical finish remover or a commercial grade cleaning detergent. These professional grade cleaners will safely remove years of failed stain, mold, mildew, and other dirt. A low pressure wash will remove these detergents to reveal a clean wood surface.
PH Neutralization: This is a step often skipped by many painters but it's important. Commercial grade cleaners are caustic on the PH scale which changes the chemical of the wood that needs to be painted or stained. A chemical neutralizer should be applied. This balances the wood’s PH making it more receptive to staining. In addition to preparing the wood for stain, the neutralization process can also act as a brightener, returning the wood to it’s natural look.
Deck Repairs: Wood decks that have been out in the elements for years can have many issues that need to be repaired. Warped or rotten deck boards might need to be replaced, nails or screws might have pulled and need to be reset, handrails may also need to be set and secured. We'll include any minor repairs required in our estimate.
Staining Or Painting The Deck: Once we're finished cleaning, neutralizing, and all of the prep work, your deck is ready for the final step. Applying the paint or stain! We apply a high quality oil based sealer to all surfaces, railings, steps, and posts on your deck. All our sealers are commercial quality and resistant to mold, mildew, and water. Whether we use paint or stain really depends on what products were used on your deck prior.
