Deck Refinishing in Jacksonville, FL
If your backyard deck is looking a bit worn out and in need of some tender love and care, you might be tempted to seek out some pressure washing. DON’T! Not only is pressure washing just a temporary fix, but you can also get a refinishing for not much more money. A refinishing job will make your deck look like new and last much longer than a pressure washing will. A professionally refinished deck will also extend the life of the deck itself!
Having a deck in tip top shape will impress your guests and increase your home’s value whereas a beat up old deck will be an eyesore to you and your guests and also deter potential buyers if you’re looking to sell.
The refinishing process for a deck consists of many steps. The first step requires a qualified professional to inspect your deck to determine what exactly is needed during the refinishing process. Big Deck Builders of Jacksonville may determine that the deck actually needs a repair first before the refinishing process begins.
If we decide that the deck is fit to be refinished, the first actual steps would be to thoroughly clean the deck with an appropriate wood cleaner. After refinishing many decks we’ve found our preferred wood cleaner to properly prepare your pool deck. Next, we pressure wash the deck to get off anything that may be a little bit too stubborn for a standard wood cleaner. After that we sand the deck to prime it so that the stain and seal grip the wood better. Finally we apply the new stain and then seal the deck. The refinishing process is a good opportunity to potentially change the stain of your deck if you think you may prefer a slightly different look.
Deck restoration and refinishing is a major part of our business. So if you find that pressure washing just isn’t getting it done, give us a call! We’re sure that you’ll be thoroughly impressed with the end result.
