Is your wooden deck looking a little worse for wear? Maybe the color has faded and it looks dingy. Maybe you’re even tempted to tear it down and build a new one. Fortunately, you don’t have to start from square one. You can bring new life to your deck simply by refinishing your deck yourself or reaching out to Paul Construction & Awning for their reliable deck refinishing services in Bucks County.
The Deck Refinishing Process
Nothing beats the look and feel of a brand new deck. And the next best thing is a refinished deck! It’s best to go through this process every few years to keep your custom deck in great condition.
Are you ready to refinish your deck and bring it back to life? Follow these easy steps:
- INSPECT IT. The first thing you should do is give your deck a thorough inspection to check for rot. If you do find extensive rot, you should first replace the affected boards before anything else. You might also come across nails that are sticking out of the wood. Instead of hammering them back into the wood, pull them out and replace them.
- CLEAN IT. Next, clear your deck of all debris by sweeping or using a leaf blower. Then scrub it with a stiff brush and a commercial deck cleaner that will remove mildew and dirt. If your deck is on the larger side, you might opt to power wash it. However, if you’re not careful, you could damage the wood and even yourself. Don’t be afraid to call in the experts for deck power washing services.
- SAND IT. Once the deck is completely dry, sand the wood to remove peeling paint or roughness. Sweep off any debris left behind from the sanding.
- STAIN IT. It’s best to stain a deck in mild weather, somewhere between 50 to 80 degrees with low wind, so that the stain doesn’t dry too quickly. Start with the handrails and then make your way down to the deck boards.
Once our stain is completely dry, you can bring back the deck furniture and enjoy your beautiful, like-new deck!
