Our 3 Step Process:
Our proven 3 step process produces dependable results and has left countless homeowners speechless. Our 3 step process includes pressure washing, sanding, and staining. The entire process takes 2-3 days to complete, not including the 48 hour drying time before we begin staining. We also recommend a full 24 hours after we finish staining before the deck can be walked on.
Our deck restoration process begins by pressure washing the floor boards, railings, steps, and side skirts around the deck. This allows us to effectively clean the wood of any mold, mildew, algae, and previous paint.
To properly prepare a deck for staining, it must be sanded down to remove any lifted wood fibers. We use a variety of sanders and grits depending on the situation and the type of wood. Regardless, we will be sure to give your deck the smooth texture you're looking for.

Why use a Professional Deck Service:
When done by professionals, deck restoration will clean, protect, and beautify your backyard deck. Some homeowners choose to take it upon themselves to work on their deck. Without the proper training, pressure washing can be very harmful to wood when used on the wrong setting or with the wrong nozzle. It's also not uncommon for DIY'ers to leave visible start and stop marks throughout the deck. Additionally, without the knowledge of how stain properly adheres to wood, stain can begin to peel after just one season if not applied correctly. In most cases, its best to leave deck restoration to the professionals.
Semi-transparent stains contain pigments that highlight the natural grain of the wood while also sealing and protecting the surface from moisture and UV rays. Semi-transparent stains enhance the wood’s beauty by adding color tinting to the deck while also keeping the grain patterns visible. Most commonly available in natural tones, browns, and reds.
Solid stains are great at hiding discoloration and can provide a uniform appearance even on a worn-down deck. Due to the high amount of pigment, they offer great UV protection and therefore maintenance is less extensive than with the other stain types. Solid stains are typically recommended for older decks.
Popular for those wanting the most natural wood look while still providing water protection. A transparent stain contains no pigments or oils and therefore doesn’t alter the appearance of the deck. For those with a new deck in good condition, this option allows you to show off the grain of the wood while protecting the deck from foot traffic, water damage, mold and mildew. Although this type of stain has good water repellency, it lacks in shielding against harmful ultraviolet rays causing graying of the wood over time.
