As most of us know, a backyard deck is one of the most challenging ‘living spaces’ to keep in prime shape. When you first installed your deck, rest assured the new, nicely stained surface was much to boast about. But season after season, year after year, your deck is exposed to nature’s elements which take away from that perfectly attractive appearance. Here at American Renovation Services we are fully aware of the significant role your backyard deck plays in your family’s summer fun and activities. With that said our highly skilled technicians stand ready to provide maintenance and repair to your deck and give it that ‘just like new’ look all over again.
The UV rays of the sun, rain, snow, ice, and both freezing and thawing conditions contribute greatly to the deterioration of your deck’s surface. Further, moisture tends to collect underneath the deck which adds to the weathered and damaged condition as well. When it comes time to refinish and maintain your deck the necessary tasks typically require the perfect touch of certified professionals which is where the qualified technicians here at American Renovation Services come in. There are multiple steps in maintaining a fresh look to your deck, all of which our team is prepared and equipped to provide.
Cleaning Your Deck
Your backyard deck needs to be properly cleaned before it can be pressure-washed. If your deck is not cleaned in advance the high-pressure washer can very well force existing mold spores into the grains of the wood, which over time creates deterioration and rot. Our team of experts is equipped with state of the art products and equipment needed to effectively and efficiently clean your deck. There are some important variables we must take into consideration when determining the best deck cleaning formula. From the type of wood and type of coating on the deck to the number of layers of the coating, all must be considered when determining the best steps to take for cleaning your deck.
Pressure Washing Your Deck
Pressure washing, if not performed properly and if not using the appropriate tip, can actually cause damage to your wooden deck that would require replacement of many of its boards. If your washer is set with too much pressure, it can actually damage and destroy the surface layer of the wood. On the other hand, if your washer is set with too little pressure it will be entirely ineffective and fail to properly prepare your deck’s surface for the up and coming refinishing project.
With these concerns in mind, our technicians will determine the best type of pressure washer to use as well as the most appropriate type of tip that will effectively perform the task at hand. In addition, they will determine how old the wood is so as to be able to determine the right amount of pressure to use. Further with their analysis, they will also decide whether or not a cleaner should be used in conjunction with the pressure washing.
Staining Your Deck
If your deck is in need of a bit more than just a cleaning and pressure-washing, then perhaps it’s time to consider restaining your deck. Depending upon how worn and weathered your deck is, we strongly suggest you perform a refinishing process approximately every 2-3 years. Again, that is where our highly skilled technicians come in. Because it can be rather difficult to keep your backyard deck in tip top condition, we strongly suggest you rely upon our premier refinishing, restaining and pressure washing services to help accomplish the task and keep your deck looking like new.
