Pressure Washing & Staining

Before you stain a deck, you should always pressure wash it to expose the wood so that in can absorb new stain or surface coatings. This also exposes any underlying damage that cannot be seen beneath heavily coated surfaces. When pressure washing a deck, it is important to make sure that the pressure is not set too high, the nozzle is not too close to the decking, and the correct nozzle is used. If these guidelines are not followed, the ending result is damaged decking or railings that will need to be replaced.

Sanding & Painting

If you plan to stain or paint your deck, sanding the surface before application can make the wood better absorb the coating. Util construction uses an orbital sander to remove any old gloss and smooth out any rough areas. It is important to use the correct type of paint on your deck that will protect it from UV damage and will not seal moisture into the boards. There are many brands that keep all of the moisture in the boards causing your decking to rot. Util construction has a wealth of experience with deck coatings and can recommend the Best products.
