SYMPTOM: Gray, cracked, and splintered wood has ruined my deck. Will I have to rebuild it?

DIAGNOSIS: UV rays from the sun turn the top cells of the decks wood gray just like tree bark. Freezing and thawing in the winter cause the wood to splinter and crack

TREATMENT:Pressuer washing removes the gray cells to expose new wood. It also helps break off cracked and splintered wood. In certain severe cases some boards may need replacing. Water sealing coats the wood by filling the exposed cells with  wax to repell water. The water does not penetrate deep into the wood so it can't freeze and thaw. Very simple but effective!!

SYMPTOM; I tried to power wash my own deck and it doesn't seem to get clean.

TREATMENT; Layers of stain and water seal can't be effectively cleaned by power washing alone. My secret formula lifts old stain and allows power washing to remove it. It is an environmently safe process that restores the natural wood.

SYMPTOM; My deck turned gray just one year after I power washed it.

DIAGNOSIS & TREATMENT; Uv rays from the sun turn the top cells of the wood gray just like tree bark. Pressure washing removes the top layers of gray wood cells but they start to gray the minute you finish. Clear water seal protects against freezing and thawing in the winter that can crack and splinter the wood. Clear water seal, however, does not protect against UV rays. I recommend a semi-transparent stain that is tinted a natural wood tone to help block the UV rays that also includes a water seal.

SYMPTOM: I used a name brand water seal that I saw on the TV commercials but it didn't last very long.
DIAGNOSIS & TREATMENT: Many water seals available at local stores are less than 1% active ingredient. You are paying for 99% mineral spirits or other agent to disperse the wax. The products I use have as much as 10 times the water seal in them and will protect much longer. Mineral spirits can be harmful to your plants. The water based products I use are safer for your lawn and plants as well as safer for your family.

Our Business Philosophy



WE HEAR FROM REFERRALS ALL THE TIME THAT THEY ARE SUPRISED THAT WE RETURNED THEIR CALL. THEY LIKE THAT WE GET TO THEIR HOME WHEN WE SAY WE WILL. WHEN WE HAVE TO RESCHEDULE BECAUSE OF RAIN WE KEEP OUR CUSTOMERS UP TO DATE WITH A PHONE CALL. I STARTED OUT DOING FRIENDS AND FAMILYS DECKS. MOST OF OUR BUSINESS COMES FROM REFERRALS OF SATISFIED CUSTOMERS SO I STILL CONSIDER THAT WE ARE DOING DECKS FOR FRIENDS!!

WORK HARD & PLAY HARDER !
