Deck Staining and Power Washing
Deck Staining & Power Washing
A properly maintained deck provides an excellent exterior living space for gatherings, meals, and entertaining. Decks, particularly those made of wood, are exposed to extreme weathering and can build up algae, mold, and dirt from continued exposure to the sun, rain, snow, and foot traffic. Regular professional maintenance and cleaning is the ideal way to prolong the life span of a deck. In most cases a deck can be treated with a wood cleaning solution and then power washed in preparation for the stain application.
Decks can be treated in a variety of different ways and it is important to understand the different types of wood and stains before performing any work. There are both oil and water based stains. In addition, clear finishes and a variety of color tinted semi-transparent and solid stains. Maximizing the life of a deck can be tricky, so it's important to talk with a well-informed professional before beginning any deck maintenance work.
