What sets us apart
- People who try to do wood restoration on the side may have good intentions, but they do not have the proper training, experience, knowledge, or investment in the best equipment and supplies that is necessary to provide a high-quality service.
- While there may be a time and place for these companies to handle a deck or fence, it pays off in the long run to have a professional company repair, clean, and stain your deck the right way. The upfront cost may be more, but the long-term benefit and satisfaction will be worth it.
One thing is certain: you should never leave your deck totally unfinished. Applying a finish is important because untreated wood will break down quickly when left to the elements. Once moisture gets in there, wood can twist, warp, and crack as it reacts to the moisture. Sunlight also breaks down wood over time as well, and combined with moisture can make it vulnerable to wood-decay fungi and wood rot.
When you’re looking at finishing your deck, there are 2 looks you can go for: paint or stain. Painting gives the best level of protection for wood. It’s the best at protecting wood from both moisture and sunlight, and can last for up to 10 years in some cases.
Staining allows you to show off the natural grain of the wood, which gives you a high-end look. Stain soaks deep into the wood, filling up gaps that would otherwise soak up moisture. Stain still provides some good resistance to moisture, but it’s not as effective as paint. It also doesn’t provide much protection from sunlight, which means you’ll likely need to reapply the stain more often than you would with paint. On average, decks should be restained every 3-4 years.
