Washington, MI Wood Deck Restoration

Decks, Docks, Fences, Gazebo’s, Retaining Walls, Furniture

We offer complete deck repair services. We assign an expert repairman who will identify bad boards & provide an estimate to install replacement boards.

No matter how old, dirty or neglected your wood deck is, we can restore it to a like-new condition using environmentally friendly restoration products. Our process will remove dead wood cells, 100% of the previous sealer, mold, mildew, algae, dirt & stains effectively without harming your wood.

Our exclusive process involves these important steps:

  1. Pre-wetting all vegetation surrounding the deck. Stripping the deck with a bio-degradable wood stain stripper along with low pressure washing to safely remove discoloration & previous worn sealer. We have 2 types of strippers. The product we recommend will depend on the thickness of the sealer we are removing.
  2. Next, we apply wood brightener to lighten old wood to a like new appearance & restore the natural ph balance.
  3. To prevent overspray during sealing, we cover siding, windows, landscape & ground surrounding the deck with tarps.
  4. After deck is dry we finish sand the top of rails, spindles, facia’s where needed to remove any rough spots or splinters.
  5. Finally, we seal the deck using TWP (Total Wood Preservative). We always back brush the entire horizontal surface by hand to ensure enough sealer is applied to dry or more porous area’s. This method results in extended life of the TWP sealer.

TWP preserves & protects the natural warmth, beauty & integrity of wood. It resists water penetration, prevents UV cracking, resists mildew & mold, prevents freeze-thaw damage, will not peel or flake and prevents wood from turning gray & weathered.

TWP has 4 popular color options: Cedar Tone, Honey Tone, Rustic or Pecan.

Don’t be fooled by companies who want to sell you a less expensive sealer than TWP. Many other products are available at substantially less cost. However, the performance of these products does not match that of TWP leading to more frequent maintenance expenses. If your deck has been done right in the past you should experience 2-3 years of life from the sealer. Furthermore, if TWP was used then the deck will look remarkably good even after a couple of seasons of weathering.

Washington, MI Brick Paver Restoration

We offer complete brick paver maintenance: large & small repair, cleaning, stripping, joint re-sanding & sealing.

Repairs: We refer an experienced repair technician to diagnose & fix problems at a reasonable cost. You will always receive a free estimate prior to the start of any repair work. Common repairs include re-leveling low or high spots, replacing cracked concrete edge restraint with new edging, adding base underlayment & compacting, replacing damaged or missing pavers, re-building steps and retaining walls.

Cleaning: Periodic cleaning of brick pavers extends the life & appearance. New & previously unsealed pavers give off concrete dust which is easily tracked onto interior flooring. Stains begin to accumulate rapidly in the pores of the surface. As new pavers cure, calcium oxide is released & begins to appear on the surface as a white powdery substance or white rings. We apply specialized cleaners used in conjunction with pressure washing the surface to remove stains from tire rubber, dirt, weeds, moss, mildew, mold, algae, grease, oil & calcium oxide.

Stripping: Stripping acrylic sealer is sometimes necessary if there is a build-up problem. Over application of sealer often causes a white haze to appear over the entire surface. This haze makes it difficult to see the color of the pavers, detracting from the overall look. Some acrylic sealers contain low quality acrylic resins which can turn yellow when exposed to the sun’s UV rays. When a clear sealer turns yellow, ugly or begins to peel or flake it most likely needs stripping. Stripping is also a way to remove sand which was sealed to the surface of the pavers. We apply a powerful stripping agent that allows removal of multiple layers of acrylic sealer. Then we rinse the stripper & previous sealer away using water pressure. The result is a surface that looks like it has never been sealed before, totally restored & ready for sealing.

Joint Re-Sanding: After brick pavers are pressure washed, dirt, weeds, moss, mildew & stains are completely removed. Sand which previous filled the cracks between the pavers is washed out. We offer 2 types of replacement sand, the type required depends on the type of sealer you choose. To create a wet look, most pavers are sealed with Paver Gloss Clear Acrylic Sealer. This sealer requires the use of Quickrete commercial grade joint sand. The acrylic sealer soaks into the sand to harden and stabilize it. Paver Gloss is the most effective way to lock the sand in place & prevent washout over time. If you desire a sealer that will not alter the matte surface appearance of brick pavers, then we use techniseal RG plus polymeric sand. Once polymeric sand is installed, levels are adjusted & then we mist the sand with water to lock it in place. Polymeric sand can be used in joints up to 1” wide. It works to control erosion, insects, weeds & drainage for an extended period of time.

Sealing: After surface is cleaned & sand is filled in, it’s time to apply a sealer. Our most popular sealer for brick pavers is Paver Gloss Acrylic Sealer, which creates a wet look by enhancing the natural color of brick pavers. Paver Gloss prevents moss, weeds, stains & loss of joint sand due to washout. It makes old pavers look new again by restoring the color. If you desire no change in the natural appearance of the pavers, we recommend Surface Saver Sealer. This siloxane sealer forms a chemical bond up to ¼ inch below the surface which prevents water penetration and is 100% breathable & invisible. Future stains become easier to remove because they can no longer penetrate the pores of the sealed surface.

Washington, MI Hardscape Restoration

Brick Pavers, Natural Stone, Concrete, Stamped Colored Concrete, Masonry, Block, Boulders & Exposed Aggregate

No matter how old, dirty or neglected your surface is, we can restore it to a like-new condition by washing & sealing. Our process will protect & enhance the natural beauty & condition of the surface avoiding costly repair & replacement. If repairs are needed, we can refer an expert repairman who will fix common problems, such as tuckpointing- replacing cracked or damaged mortar joints.

Our hardscape restoration process:

  1. Pre-wet the surface & apply necessary cleaning agents such as efflorescence cleaner, de-greaser, de-stainer or detergent to remove difficult stains from the pores of the surface.
  2. Pressure wash the surface using state of the art equipment to remove all moss, mildew, mold, dirt & stains.
  3. Low pressure rinse surface & the entire surrounding area.
  4. Apply an appropriate sealer to the surface depending on surface type, condition & appearance desired.

We offer 2 different sealers for hardscape maintenance & preservation. If you goal is to maintain the natural “matte” appearance of the surface we recommend Surface Saver, a water based siloxane sealer. It penetrates up to ¼ inch into the surface to form a lasting chemical bond that will not trap moisture or water vapor at the surface. Surface Saver repels surface moisture, chemicals, de-icing salts, & stains keeping them from soaking in & damaging the integrity of the surface. When future dirt & stains appear, they will be much easier to remove.

Surface Saver is the best choice for bare concrete, limestone, bluestone, flagstone, fieldstone, grindstone, slate & brick masonry.

To create a glossy wet look on brick pavers, stamped colored concrete & exposed aggregate we recommend Paver Gloss sealer. Paver Gloss is a professional grade clear acrylic sealer which enhances the natural color of the treated surface while protecting against stains & UV color fade. Paver Gloss acrylic sealer creates a protective barrier against surface against abrasions, dirt, moss, mold, & chemicals. Dirt & stains will easily release from the treated surface by rinsing the surface using a garden hose & spray nozzle. Paver Gloss will not make the surface slippery, so it’s a great choice for driveways, walkways, patio’s & pool decks.

Washington, MI Composite Deck Restoration

If you have a composite deck, chances are you have discovered that it is not maintenance free. The composite surface is a breeding ground for many stubborn environmental stains such as mold. Most composite manufacturers recommend cleaning the surface at least twice a year, or whenever stains first appear. Our goal is to remove the stains & reduce the frequency of cleanings to help you maintain the like-new appearance for the longest duration possible.

We a specialized composite deck cleaner to remove common stains such as mold, mildew, algae, grease & dirt:

Oxi Out- Algae & Mold Remover. It contains no bleach, (sodium hypochlorite), oxalic acid, phosphates or ammonia. It’s eco-friendly, bio-degradable, non-toxic & has no harmful odors. It produces excellent results removing embedded stains from the pores. To prevent future recurrance of stains we apply a protective sealer after cleaning.

Step 1- Application of Oxi Out- Algae & Mold Remover
A high strength, oxygen powered cleaner formulated for composite decks that creates a foaming action penetrating deep into the pores to attack dirt, algae, mold & mildew at the root. Oxi Out is not harmful to humans, pets, grass or your landscape. After application the surface is low pressure rinsed to remove stubborn embedded stains. Oxi Out typically removes most stains with a single application. Stubborn stains may require an additional applications.

Step 2- Application of Oxi Shield- Algae & Mold Barrier
A breakthrough clear liquid sealer applied after the composite surface is clean, dry & all stains are removed. It forms a 100% breathable stain barrier which works continually & proactively to prevent algae, mold, mildew, bacteria, odor & hydrocarbons from attaching to the surface. Oxi Shield clear liquid contains nano-sized ultraviolet reactive particles that continually react with the sun’s UV rays & moisture. This constant photo-catalytic reaction produces a small amount of hydrogen peroxide on the composite surface. Hydrogen peroxide prevents the accumulation of algae & mold by preventing it from forming & growing. If you are frustrated with frequent cleaning of your composite deck, this is a highly effective solution to reduce the frequency & expense of multiple cleanings each season.

Biggest Mistakes Composite Deck Owners Make

  1. Not cleaning composite surfaces regularly & throughly
    Many owners have been told composite decks are maintenance free. Therefore they fail to do periodic cleaning to remove mold, mildew & algae stains which rapidly begin to take root in the pores of the composite surface. In a short time, mold spots & mildew begin to develop, becoming progressively worse over time. If these stains are left on the surface for an extended period, removal can be expensive, frustrating & labor intensive. Regular cleaning at least 1-2 times a season is highly recommended by composite manufacturers to remove rapid build-up of dirt, stains, algae, mold & mildew.
  2. Using a typical deck cleaner which contains chlorine bleach
    Oxi Out is specifically designed to clean composite decks safely & effectively without bleach. Bleach is damaging to composite lumber and fades the color with repeated applications. Using bleach-based deck cleaners will only exacerbate mold growth, making future stains even more difficult to remove. Rather that waste time & money cleaning the surface yourself, it’s best to leave the task to an experienced professional. A typical deck cleaner is not designed to be used to clean a composite deck.
  3. Not applying a protective barrier to composite after cleaning
    Oxi Shield sealer is a breakthrough clear liquid that will continually act as a barrier against algae, mold, mildew, bacteria, and hydrocarbons from attaching to the pores of the surface. Failing to apply a sealer to your composite deck will result in frequent recurrance of common stains which require multiple cleanings each & every season to remove.
