The Power Washers of North America have certified us in wood restoration. We will take the time needed to complete your project correctly.

Once the bark is taken off the tree the wood has no way of protecting itself.  The damaging effects of weather to unprotected wood can begin immediately.  Rain, melting snow and morning dew are quickly absorbed by unprotected wood causing it to swell.  The sun’s heat causes drying, which makes the wood shrink.  These cycles of wet and dry, swelling and shrinking, cause wood to warp, split, cup and crack – all of which lead to shortened wood life and expensive repairs and replacement.

You can count on us when it comes to protecting your exterior wood. We offer fence and deck cleaning and restoration. Contact us today for a free quote.

Having your wood cleaned and sealed/stained can double the life of your wood and make your wood look like new again.

Why You Should Not Pressure Wash Yourself

Some people think they will save money if they rent a pressure washer and use it to clean their deck, fence, house or patio themselves. There is a saying, you think a professional is expensive, try an amateur. Power washing a deck, fence or any outdoor structure requires the correct cleaning agents and chemicals and just as important, the correct technique. Learning is expensive.

Unless a homeowner has real experience pressuring washing for residential or commercial clients, they should leave home power washing to a professional. It is not easy as it looks and can be dangerous and financially costly if done incorrectly. If you haven’t used one before, you may not understand the power behind a pressure washer. If you use the wrong amount of pressure, the wrong pressure tip, get too close to the surface or the wrong cleaners you could damage your deck, fence, or siding on your home. Damage occurs in a blink of an eye.

It is better to allow home power washing to be done by a contractor with a lot of experience. This will save money and time. Having to hire someone to repair or replace damage to your home is expensive, time consuming and inconvenient. It is okay to ask for help, especially when it comes to the delicate task of cleaning and staining wood.

Our Restoration Process Includes These Important Steps

  1. We provide a written quote explaining all the work to be done.
  2. We begin by removing the old sealer/stain with a stripping solution. Our process is environmentally friendly and will not harm your pets, plants or grass.
  3. Next, we gently wash your wood with a power washer using low pressure. We do not use high pressure because that will damage your wood.
  4. The wood is then treated with a neutralizing agent that will brighten the wood and prepare it for our sealer/stain.
  5. The wood must then dry (several days, depending on the weather) to a moisture content of 12% or less. We use sophisticated moisture meters to electronically read the moisture in the wood to ensure the wood is dry in order for the sealer/stain to bond properly.
  6. We then seal/stain your wood by hand (we do not use sprayers) with a penetrating oil based semi-transparent sealer/stain that we warranty will not crack or peel. The sealer/stain protects your wood from the sun's harmful UV rays, resists algae and moss, and repels water.
  7. We warranty walking surfaces for 2 years and vertical surfaces for 4 years.
