We know how frustrating it can be owning a home, maintaining it properly, and the associated costs that accompany it. This is one the main reasons we try to make it easy for you to do business with us.
Our goal is simple…
To make the process of maintaining your deck and painted surfaces at your home as easy and as simple as possible.
This process begins by responding to your requests in a timely fashion, which translates to an honest attempt for one-day-or-less turnaround time for phone calls and e-mails. We will put our best efforts into providing you with estimates and work completed within what we all would consider a reasonable period of time that doesn’t leave you guessing and waiting.
Protecting and Beautifying your Deck…Our Methodology
- It may be necessary to remove an old stain or paint prior to putting a new stain on your deck. If your deck stain or paint looks sound after inspection, we can apply a new coating over it without removing the old one. However, it may also be necessary to remove an old coating if the previous one is peeling.
We begin by properly preparing your deck surfaces which Include the following steps…
We utilize the proper cleaners, detergents, and stripping agents that allow us to remove old stain and dirt from the wood surface and sub-surface, bringing back its natural color as much as possible, thus, increasing the longevity of your wood deck, while preparing it for a new coating of stain. Following this, we recommend two to three days of drying time before a coating of stain is applied. We also clean composite decks.
We inspect for areas of small, loose splinters and wood burrs or “fuzzies” that may have been previously dislodged or become loose from the cleaning process. We then sand as necessary to promote a smoother surface that is safer and more enjoyable to walk on.
We finish by applying high-grade stains to your deck surfaces. We apply a double-coat on the horizontal surfaces such as the deck floor and rail tops since they receive the majority of the harsh effects of the weather, dirt, decomposing leaves and debris. Foot traffic on the dirt and debris also contributes to the wear by having a “sanding effect” to your deck floor.
- At our recommendation or customers’ request, we also have the ability to remove any undesired wood planks or boards that may be rotted or split and considered unsafe for walking. Broken spindles and rails can also be replaced.
