Sealing fence under the rain

We all know, we have a terrible year with this crazy weather. We already lost almost two months of our short season, when we can actually seal the exterior wood. We don’t work, because we are the good guys.

Take a look at our competitor, sealing the fence under the rain.

if your handrails are painted

If you’ve got the handrails on your deck painted it is not real good by our book, but it’s not the end of the world.

Unfortunately, we can not restore it to beautiful natural looking wood. Our wood strippers will not work, because it designed for sealers and stains, and sanding will not work, because there is no way to get a sander down to every surface.
Here what you should do:
 – Get a good painter contractor.
 – Make sure, they prepare surface properly. They should pressure wash the handrails with house cleaner and bleach, scrub all pilled paint, then apply a nice paint, or solid stain with the color of your choice.
 – Make sure you’ll keep about a gallon of this stuff. If vertical will last about 8-10 years, top of the handrails will ware out twice faster. You’ll need to re-touch the top of the handrails sometime in the middle of this cycle.
 – And never ever use paint or latex-acrylic stain on horizontal surface of your deck.

First project 2016 is completed

We love this deck at Mercer Island. Natural Cedar tone on clear cedar. Beutiful, isn’t it?


Natural Cedar tone


Tip from ExWoCare: The optimal temperature for the most sealers and stains to apply is between 75 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit

Defurring (light sanding) wooden surfaces

If chemical are used during deck restoration, wood might fur. Some companies coat it as is, other sand the wood. We use something different – defurring with nylon brush. It’s fast and beautiful, see for yourself (right side the wood is defurred)
