Fences, Pergolas, Canopies, And More:
We are able to tackle all types of outdoor wood projects. This includes restoring weathered fences, pergolas, canopies, and any other wooden structure you may have around your property.
Our proven 3 step process produces stunning results every time and has left countless homeowners speechless. Our wood restoration process includes pressure washing, sanding, and staining / sealing. The entire process takes 2-3 days to complete, not including the 48 hour drying time before we begin staining.
Step 1 - Pressure Washing:
Our restoration process begins by pressure washing the floor boards, railings, steps, side skirts, and posts around the deck or wooden structure. We clean wood by reducing the pressure and increasing the water flow which allows us to effectively remove dirt, algae, moss, discolouration, and any previous paint.
Step 2 - Sanding:
To properly prepare a deck for staining, it must be sanded down to remove any lifted wood fibers and to smooth out the corners and rough patches. Sanding will also remove any deeply engrained algae or mildew from the wood while also shaving off the old paint. We use a wide range of electric sanders with varying grits depending on the situation and the type of wood.
Step 3 - Staining / Sealing:
Lastly, we apply a high quality stain which adds a rich tone to the wood while enhancing the natural look of every board. The stain and sealers we use are oil-based allowing the pigment to deeply set into the wood rather than chipping or peeling like many cheap products that are available at your local hardware store. Our product is specifically manufactured for our Canadian climate meaning the results will last several years despite our harsh winters.
We have a variety of colour options including cedar, pecan, redwood, mahogany, chestnut, walnut, and the wet/clear look. We have several before and after photos for each colour choice so you know exactly how your project will turn out before we begin. You can choose your own colour, or have one of our experienced technicians help you decide what colour would best compliment your home and backyard!
