Welcome to our website. Deck refinishing and repair are all about preserving the life and appearance of your deck.
The enemies of your deck are sun, water, heat/cold and quality of the deck construction. Sun, water, heat and cold damage your deck by breaking down the finish on your deck. If the finish has deteriorated, the damage may also spread to the wood fibers.
A well constructed and maintained deck should last 15-20 years in Colorado’s dry climate.
There are excellent stains for achieving the finish that you desire on your deck, from semi-transparent to solid color stains. Stains penetrate wood, unlike paints, which lay on the surface. Over time, paints tend to crack and peel as water gets between the paint and the wood fibers. The trade off between transparent and solid color stains is the beauty of the wood grain versus the longevity of the stain.
Deck repair primarily consists of replacing any wood that splits, cracks or is consumed by dry rot. Surface damage to wood is often a product of deck construction with wood that has a bad wood grain. Heavy traffic on stairs can damage their structural integrity. Any structural damage caused by dry rot must be replaced. Once dry rot starts, it will spread throughout a deck until the affected boards are removed and replaced.
