Waterproofing and Sealing
Wood patios, decks, outdoor furniture, siding, wooden window frames can all use some water-resistant treatments to ensure they stand the test of time and are protected from harsh weather elements. This exterior wood preservation process is called sealing or waterproofing. Although both names refer to the same wooden surface treatment, some customers mistakenly think they are different services. Sealing prevents water from penetrating the wood and cause premature rot, mold, or mildew growth. Sealing your deck or any other verticle wooden surface is especially vital because prolonged exposure to water makes it deteriorate much faster.
Besides waterproofing wood surfaces, our waterproofing company also seals concrete and brick. Sealing driveway protects it from dirt, oil spills, and discoloration. Brick or paver stone patios, walkways, and driveways can also be sealed to protect them from the elements.

Staining is another process to protect the wood surface from moisture and elements. Unlike sealing, staining not only protects the wood but also gives it the desired color tint. Staining is a preferred method for older decks and porches, especially ones that were stained before. There are three kinds of stain; transparent, semi-solid, and solid for old wooden surfaces that were stained multiple times before we recommend using solid stains. For newer porches and decks to preserve wood's natural look, we use transparent or semi-transparent stains. Before any surface can be stained, it needs to be appropriately prepared to warranty the longevity of the stain. We use wood cleaners and brighteners or sand the surface if necessary to make sure stain will penetrate the wood properly.

Sometimes professional cleaning is all that is needed to bring out the former beauty of your siding or deck. Pressure cleaning or power washing exterior wooden decks and other surfaces will remove dust built-up, debris, soot, and other pollutants that make your house, deck, or driveway look old and shabby. Although power washing is not the only solution when it comes to exterior cleaning, it is probably the most used method to remove surface grime. Our exterior cleaning professionals employ various techniques, such as power washing, chemical or soft washing, hand cleaning, and others, depending on the surface being cleaned. It is vital to have a professional do it because of the high risk of damaging your property.
