Before any Deck Sealing we soak the deck and then apply wood cleaners that are designed for deck and fence cleaning, to brighten the deck and remove dead wood fibers and oxidized stains and sealers. We are very experienced in using pressure washers with adjustable pressure which clean the deck or fence extremely well and efficiently, with less water use then cleaning it yourself. Debris trapped in between deck boards is washed out, greatly decreasing the start of dry rot, and allowing the deck to be able to "breath" again. People are amazed at how much better their decks look after the cleaning.
This process is necessary when the existing stains and sealers on the deck are built up and heavy to the point where they not only look bad, but will prevent the new deck stains and deck sealers from penetrating the woods surface. We can chemically strip and pressure wash the deck, then apply a neutralizer and brightener to return the wood back to its natural PH level before we apply the new deck sealer. We sand decks with electric sanders when chemical stripping is not an option or does not remove enough of the old stain to achieve the desired appearance. We also sand damage caused by furniture, animals, or as a result of pressure washing done by inexperienced hands. We use filters and vacuums to minimize dust when sanding decks. Again, people are amazed with what we can do with their decks.
In most cases we use oil base materials for staining and sealing decks. We use semi transparent oil so that you can see and enjoy the natural beauty and wood grain of your deck and still benefit from its rejuvenating effect on the wood as well as protection from the elements. We can also use a semi solid oil for a darker look to hide imperfections or previous dark stains. While most manufacturers have turned to water base only products, Armstrong is still producing a high quality oil base stain.
If your deck has been previously painted or stained with a solid opaque stain or porch paint, or if you simply want a solid paint look without wood grain showing through the finish, there are quality products available, and we can assist you in making the right choice for your deck. Water based stains and sealers are improving as VOC laws get stiffer and the oil sealers head toward extinction. There are some water based sealers in semi transparent as well, which do offer more color options. We still recommend a real oil base sealer, which contrary to popular belief are still available and legal in California.
