    Why Should I Restain My Deck?

     

    Staining your deck can revive the color and wood grain pattern, making it look new again.

    Over time, your deck’s stain will wear away because of the elements..

    Restaining your deck offers the following benefits:

    • Weather protection: Restaining will prevent further damage from inclement weather.
    • Increased lifespan: Your deck surface will last longer with new staining.
    • Heat and water protection: Restaining can protect your deck from water and heat damage.
    • Improved visual appeal: New stains look beautiful, adding aesthetic value.
    • Updated look and feel: Your deck won’t look or feel old anymore.
    • Fixes safety hazards: Restaining prevents splinters and other potential safety issues.
    • Prepares it for frequent usage: Frequent usage can wear an unstained deck down.

    If you want to keep your deck boards looking great and protect the entire deck from rain and sun, call us for deck staining!

    Our Deck Staining Process

     

    When you work with our certified contractors at DeckMaster for your deck staining project, here’s what you can expect. Our deck staining professionals follow a consistent process for each project. 

    Choose a Stain or Sealer

     Our deck staining experts help you pick the best stain, taking into consideration your style preferences and the type of wood on your deck. Whether you want a clear, tinted, semi-transparent, or solid stain, we’ll help you choose the best deck paint or stain for you.

    We’ll work with you to determine what exactly your   priorities are. Whether you want to protect your deck from mold and UV damage or simply want a brand-new look, we’ll help you pick an exterior wood stain or sealer that gets the job done.

     Consultation

    Our professional team works with you to develop a comprehensive plan. Together, we examine your deck, consider your goals, and decide on an appropriate course of action. We also inspect your deck for mold, mildew, and wood rot.

    Prepare Your Deck

      Before staining your deck, our experts clean it thoroughly. Using professional tools such as sanders, we remove any grime and old stain to start with a fresh canvas.

    Stain Your Deck

      Using skill and care, we thoroughly stain your deck, using premium-grade stains and tools to make your deck shine.

    Clean Up

    Lastly, we clean up the worksite, wrapping up the staining process. As part of our 100% satisfaction guarantee, we’ll make sure you’re happy with our work.

    Should I Restain or Refinish My Deck?

     

    Not sure if you should restain or refinish your deck? No worries! Here’s the difference between these two services.

    Deck staining involves applying an exterior deck stain to a deck. 

    On the other hand, deck refinishing replaces the deck’s entire surface, which is more costly and time intensive. Deck refinishing works best in situations where your deck’s surface is rotting, decaying, falling apart, or otherwise unsafe. 

    If your deck merely needs a new varnish, staining is the way to go. Our experts at DeckMaster can inspect your deck and decide what works best in your specific circumstances.

    ★★★★★
    “They arrived on time, power washed my patio (it looked absolutely new) and power washed the deck. Wow! They also locked in a reasonable price to have the deck retreated in 3 years! In just a few days, after the deck had dried, they returned and applied the protection treatment on the deck. It only took a couple of hours, and my 23 year old deck looked NEW! I highly recommend this company!”

    Carol M.

    ★★★★★
    “Our deck had been treated with an incorrect product by a handyman. I really thought there was no hope for getting the stuff off and thought we would need to replace the deck. They came out and looked at it, assured me they could get it off – they did a great job and it turned out just beautiful. They were a delight to work with and we will definitely use them again.”

    Kim R.

    ★★★★★
    “We are very happy with the services DeckMaster recently provided! We had the house siding and deck pressure washed. We also had the deck stained and sealed. Everyone we dealt with was professional and knowledgeable. The work, methods and products used were carefully explained. Thank you DeckMasters and Team #14 Carlos & Cesar!”

    Eileen H.

    ★★★★★
    “This was the second time we have had DeckMaster service and, again, we are totally satisfied. Carlos and Cesar were efficient, professional, and thorough in doing the work, which involved cleaning the composite deck, flagstone patio, and vinyl house siding, and painting the deck’s wooden support structure. The results are top-notch and the price for all the work done seems very reasonable.”

    Sue M.

    ★★★★★
    “Our deck project was made easy with Deck Master. The initial appointment with the project manager went smoothly and everything explained thoroughly about the process from beginning to end. First, repairs were done then the power washing and finally the staining. Truly looks like a new deck. Everyone associated with each phase was pleasant, timely and professional.”

    Carolyn L.

    ★★★★★
    “This was a deck that was a total mess. Splintery and in very bad shape. You could not walk barefoot on this deck. Crew Van#7 were amazing. They were meticulous on each step from the cleaning to the sanding and finally staining. The deck looks amazing and we are so pleased with the outcome. Better than expected. Thank you for doing such a great job and caring about the work you do.”

    Deck Master achieved our vision of a minimalist and yet modern and low maintenance look to showcase new fresher style with less obstruction. Pavel, the project manager was professional and very responsive. The quotes he gave us was reasonable, affordable, and the workmanship was remarkable - even better than their most expensive competitor. Yelka has superb customer service and she really took care of our needs and questions. The work of the crew was meticulous. Not to mention Carlos who installed the Trex Signature Horizontal Rod Railing had such attention to details and took into consideration our feedback and made things look well done.

    Had the best experience working with DeckMaster, Inc. My house has a historical designation which requires extra permitting and permission. Jose took care of all of that and he and his team fully replaced the existing deck with a much sturdier, better designed one. The whole process was smooth and efficient once the permitting was over, and I look forward to the final painting and finishing in the spring.

    Deck Master (1) removed our old rotting ground level wooden deck and replaced it with a beautiful paver patio with sitting walls (2) replaced our deteriorating porch wooden steps with composite vinyl/trex lighted steps (3) replaced our porch screens, cleaned and stained porch all fascia boards including vinyl cladding on vertical fascia. All work was done in a very professional way with separate crews that specialized in the work that needed to be done including the demolition. Each crew would show up and work until work was completed and then clean up and remove all construction debris. Crews and construction managers and office managers were friendly and responsive to our concerns. All materials and installation were top quality resulting in an impressive finished product. I highly recommend Deck Master.

    DeckMaster did a great job of replacing our old deck with a Trex structure that looks beautiful & substantial. The initial estimate was timely, accurate & reasonably priced. The installers were prompt, courteous & carefully cleaned up when finished. My emails & phone calls to them were promptly responded to. I recommend DeckMaster highly.

    the customer service was great. Melanie explained me about the services that DeckMaster provide. I decided to do a deck maintenance, and I was amazed of the great job that they did. When the people arrive to my house, I told them that I do not like shoes on my house, and they listen to me. My deck now looks like never before super clean. Overall the experience with DeasMaster was excellent.
