Staining and Waterproofing

Paint isn't necessarily the answer to all the wood on your home. Things like decks, patios, fences and gazebos can look great when kept in their natural wood form. The problem is even with treated wood the strong effects of Mother Nature will turn your beautiful outdoor living space into a disaster.

Faded splintering wood is no place to entertain guests and family. When wood is left untouched for years in rain, snow, ice and the Sun's powerful rays it can become quite damaged. This damage leads to rot, mold, mildew, cracking, splintering and discoloration. These problems not only make your deck or patio look unsightly but can actually effect its structural safety. Once these problems are left unattended for a long enough period of time, the only solution is to completely replace all of your damaged wood. This can be a costly and timely project that isn't necessary.

The real answer to these problems is to apply a stain or waterproofing layer to your wooden area's every few years. The proper stain not only allows you to tint your wood to the perfect color that matches your home, but still allows you to see your beautiful wood. A waterproof resin can be applied as well which won't change the color of the wood at all but will make sure water beads up instead of being absorbed, causing a majority of damage. Both of these can be applied quite easily with brushes and rollers..
