Maintaining Your Wood Deck
Over time the sun, rain and sadly pollutants in our air can degrade your deck’s defenses taking its color and looks with it. Our deck maintenance services will keep your deck protected and looking great year-round. The deck maintenance service consists of three primary elements, regular cleaning, spot sanding when needed combined with a stain and seal when appropriate.
If you have recently installed a new ipe, mangaris, redwood or another wood deck then sealing your deck may be the best possible way to avoid detailed deck refinishing in the future. In fact, sealing your deck the moment it is built and following it up with regular deck maintenance is crucial if you want to maintain a beautiful appearance and protect the integrity of your deck’s material. Installing a new deck can be expensive, by employing affordable and regular deck maintenance services you can greatly extend its lifespan.
WHY DO I NEED TO SEAL MY DECK?
Some people choose to allow their decks to weather to a gray appearance. However, without a high-quality deck sealer matched to your type of wood, it is highly likely the deck will become damaged from high sun and rain exposure.
Homeowners will often try to Do It Themselves using a decking restorer like Liquid Armor or a Rustoleum deck restore, only to find out mass-produced products don’t meet many specific needs. In fact, the best deck sealer products are not usually those found at the big box stores. We use only top quality sealers and matches the right sealer to your wood type and condition.
The saying an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The same is true for maintaining your deck. Regular affordable deck maintenance results in a deck that resists fading, decay or rot. Plus your deck looks GREAT all the time. By avoiding deck maintenance you may find that the resulting damage will then require a more costly deck resurfacing in the future. Keep your deck looking great and avoid costly repairs in the future by hiring professionals who will clean, stain and maintain your deck with the very best deck stains and sealers.
THE PROPER CARE OF WOOD DECKS
When it comes to maintaining your deck, you really only have two choices: you can seal now, or you can seal later. If you seal your deck as soon as it is installed and take care to reseal and protect it on a regular basis, you will find that the overall cost of deck maintenance is far less than replacement. On the other hand, if you fail to seal your deck and you wait too long, you may find that you are faced with expensive repairs and even replacement of your deck’s surface or supports.
