A wood deck is a great place for relaxing on your own or entertaining, especially during nicer weather. It’s an extension of your home. Another living area that breeds good conversation and relationships and memories. This fact makes it even more important that your deck looks its very best and is protected from the elements so you can better enjoy its full beauty and living space potential now and for years to come. This is exactly where Wisa Solutions comes in…
Our Proprietary 5-Step Process for Successful Wood Preservation:
1- First, an application of stripping / cleansing agent to all surfaces that will be stained.
2- The stripper is then removed along with any dirt, grime, mold, or algae using a safe, low pressure rinse with cold water. If any carpentry or repairs are needed we would perform these in this step. We have that covered, too!
3- We then apply a neutralizing agent to remove the alkaline base residue caused by the stripper and also to brighten the wood, bringing out the natural beauty of the grain.
4- From there, we rough sand all those rugged surfaces and then go over its entirety again using finer sand until all surfaces are ultra smooth and ready to be stained.
5- Staining is the final step. We recommend using a high quality stain most suitable for your specific project. High quality stain selection is vital because it will last longer and wear better, saving you money in the long run. It’s an investment. Why use a product that you will inevitably have to go back and replace in a few years? Inferior products contain paraffin and do not protect well from UV-rays.
We want to do it right the first time. Your deck deserves it.
This 5-step process takes a minimum of 2 days, as the wood has to be allowed to thoroughly dry before staining can take place.
In the end, your own little section of the great outdoors is ready for whatever nature can throw at it. And we know that is a lot, all year ‘round. Being on the east coast, we know that’s anything from the most frigid of winters with ice and snow to the scorching heat of summer and heavy rains.
