Deck Staining London Ontario


Wood Restoration Service in London, Ontario

Deck Restoration: 

Your backyard deck is the perfect place to host your family and friends - until it becomes an eye sore. Removing dirt, algae, moss, and faded previous stain will not only restore your deck's natural beauty, but it will also prolong the life of the wood. We also apply a stain and sealer that will turn your weathered deck into a masterpiece. Make the most out of this summer with a fully restored deck. 

Fences, Pergolas, Gazebos, And More: 

We are able to tackle all types of outdoor wood projects. This includes restoring weathered fences, pergolas, gazebos, and any other wooden structure you may have around your property. 

Our Process:

Our proven 3 step wood restoration 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 2-4 days to complete, depending on the size and complexity of the job. 

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. To clean wood safely and effectively, we use lower pressure and higher water flow to remove dirt, algae, moss, discoloration, and chipping 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 any 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. We use oil-based stains and sealers that absorb deep into the wood rather than drying as a layer of paint on the surface. What does this mean? No chipping or peeling paint - guaranteed! Our products are specifically manufactured for our Canadian climate meaning the results will last years despite our harsh winters.

Colour Options: 

We have a variety of colour options including clear, cedar, pecan, redwood, mahogany, chestnut, and walnut. 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!

Frequently Asked Questions

How often do I need to get my deck stained?

The standard recommendation is to stain your deck every 3 years. However, some homeowners choose to have us come every other year for optimal maintenance, while others prefer to wait 4 to 5 years between restorations. Factors that affect the longevity of the stain include the amount of direct sunlight, the type of wood, and the level of foot traffic. Vertical boards, such as railings and fences, retain their stain longer than horizontal floorboards due to reduced wear and exposure to the elements.

Can you stain a deck or fence that has been previously painted / stained?

Depending on the product previously used, we may need to completely strip the wood of the old paint before applying our stain and sealer. This is because our oil-based products penetrate the wood, and an existing layer of paint can prevent proper absorption. However, stains (as opposed to paint) don’t present this issue, allowing us to simply apply the new stain directly over the old stain. Regardless of the situation, we have the tools and expertise to restore decks and fences in almost any condition.

What is the difference between staining and sealing?

Staining enhances the wood with colour and UV protection, while sealing creates a barrier against moisture. All our stains include a built-in sealer for comprehensive protection. We also offer a clear sealer option that doesn't have any pigment, and therefore no UV protection. This makes the clear sealer less durable than a combined stain and sealer.

How soon can I walk on my deck after it has been stained?

We understand your excitement to use your newly restored deck! However, it's important to wait between 24 and 48 hours before walking on it to allow the stain and sealer to fully absorb into the wood. Factors such as temperature, humidity levels, and the intensity of direct sunlight can influence drying times. So, sit tight and soon enough, you'll be enjoying your deck with a fresh, durable finish!
