Wood Restoration

Deck Restoration

Your deck is a place to kick back and relax, as well as entertain friends and family. It's an outdoor living space that deserves the same caring maintenance that you provide to the interior of your home. If your deck goes left untreated, the wood will be exposed to harsh weather conditions and strong UV rays.

Over time, this exposure can cause your deck to dry out and eventually rot, which ultimately leads to a dangerous environment, and not one that you can enjoy. Different types of woods, the age of the wood and the condition of the wood will determine the type of restoration needed. Standard wood restoration practices are as follows:

  • Removing Existing Finish
  • Cleaning and Brightening Wood
  • Sanding Wood
  • Applying a High Quality Finish

Fence Restoration

A wood fence can add beauty to your property or it can be an eyesore. When you think of the time and money you invest in bordering your property with a wood fence, it only makes sense to protect your investment to ensure the beauty for years to come.

Without protection, mold and mildew builds up in some areas of the fence trapping in moisture rotting the wood. In other areas, the strong UV rays from the sun begin to break down the fibers on the surface of the wood, which begin to dry out and turn gray

By promptly treating a fence or shed with our penetrating stain, the wood fibers will absorb the oils they need to survive changing weather conditions. These non-drying oil-based stains are unlike the usual thinner-based wood stains that evaporate and leave little protection behind. The oil does not dry, keeping the wood protected from the elements. The properly treated fence will have a much longer lifespan, than the untreated fence.

Cedar Siding

There's no doubt that cedar shingle siding on your home can be stunning and beautiful to look at. However, when left untreated, the elements wreak havoc on the cedar shingles. Constant exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays will break down the fibers in the wood. Exposure to wet weather, such as rain or snow, keep the wood constantly wet, a perfect environment for mold, mildew and fungi. Untreated cedar shingles will rot because of oils lost when the wood was first cut down and milled. The wood will deteriorate, as it dries.

Our wood restoration specialist will treat the cedar shingles with a product that preserves the beauty of the natural-looking wood shingles. For new siding, we simply apply the preservation product to the shingles. For older siding that has weathered for several years, we will first restore the wood, then apply the preservative.
