Decks & Fences
The winter conditions and exposure to the sun can peel paint away, an activity like pets or children running around can cause damage, and so much more. It can be hard keeping your deck maintained at a certain level all by yourself. But don’t worry! Our experts here at Just Paint It have the knowledge to keep your deck looking beautiful no matter the condition!
Our deck care services include:
Step 1: Application of cleaning agents
Preparation is key to the success in restoration of your deck, fences, log home or any wooden structure. We will tarp the vegetation and/or cover small bushes as we apply cleaning agents in preparation for the next step.
Step 2: Power washing
Our trained professional technicians will always use a low-pressure wash. Again the cleaners have already done the work for us. We see a lot of decks with cut marks in the wood. These lines cut into the wood are because of high pressure and inexperience. We have our pressure washers set at 1500 psi.
Step 3: Neutralizing the deck
One of the most important steps in the entire process is the neutralization of the cleaning agents previously applied. This balances the PH of the wood as well as removing stubborn tannin staining. This is accomplished by the use of our specially blended brightening agents. After application and short dwell time, a final rinse of the entire surfaces is a clone.
Step 4: Sealing/Staining
After one to three dry days, we will be out to finish the job. We brush in the sealer/stain, this gives direct contact to the wood, control of the sealer/stain and penetration deep into the wood fibers. We always apply two coats to the decking, top of steps and top of rails. Other services quote one coat and charge for a second coat.
