Your wood is carefully power washed with water pressure between 2,000 and 3,000 P.S.I. Power washing removes the top layer of dead wood fibers much the same way sandblasters remove rust from metal. Our technicians are trained to maintain an approximate 45 degree spray angle and stay with the wood grain to avoid excess fraying of the wood surface.
The wood is allowed to dry for 48 hours, at which time the wood must be prepped for staining. The wood is then brushed and sanded to remove any frayed or splintered wood.
After pressure washing and prep of the deck we apply a Penetrating Oil Stain by roller pushing the oils into the wood ensuring there is no pooling.
FYI> If you have spoken to other contractors about staining your wood deck and have any doubt about their knowledge of your deck wood’s needs, be aware that improperly stained wood deck usually costs more to fix than it does to do it right the first time.
