A freshly stained deck for a backyard BBQ or an upcoming party makes a world of difference and can be completed in as little as one day by our team!
Before any painting or staining can begin we always start with a powerwash to fully clean the deck of any dirt and mildew. This process will also help remove some, but not all, peeling paint spots.The powerwash will always be done at least 7 days prior to any painting/staining. If you have grills and tables on the deck we can certainly remove them for you and come back after the paint/stain has fully cured in to put them back on the deck.
Once the deck has dried out more prep work is sometimes needed. This can be as simple as hand scraping a couple problem areas of peeling paint to sanding. The picture on the left, the customer didn't wait a season or 2 after installing new deck boards to stain their deck and as a result the damp wood didn't take the stain and started to peel off. If this happens a stain remover and sanding will be required to get the surface back to square one.
After all the prep work has been done we start painting/staining the railings. This can be as easy as 1 fresh coat of the same color or it could be priming the bare wood before 2 coats of a topcoat of paint is requested. Paints/stains/enamels are all customer preferences be we can certainly help you out with suggestions.
After the railings are complete we start on the floor. We always cut in the edges of the surface with a brush and brush all the gaps between floorboards to get a uniform coat. Enamels and stains both will get 2 coats. If a transparent or semi transparent stain is requested we always apply each coat by hand with a 4 inch deck stain brush for the best coverage. Transformations on these deck projects are always night and day. Don't be surprised if it steels the show at your next barbecue!
