After 20 years spent building, repairing, and cleaning decks, Larry Strawbridge knows all too well that protecting exterior wood surfaces ? such as decks,
fences, porches, and wood siding ? takes more than a paintbrush and pail of sealant. His four-part premium wood-service package begins as he strips peeling stain and paint from wood, using cleaners and environmentally friendly solutions. Then, he waterproofs slats from the inside out, using a blend of silicone and cedar oils that displaces any water from within the microscopic wood cells. A sealer further enhances the waterproof barrier before a final layer of stain graces the deck with visual appeal. Next, a penetrating clear acrylic sealer is applied, followed by a final top coat of acrylic stain to give your wood lasting beauty with a limited lifetime warranty., so long as the deck doesn't suffer from pre-existing conditions such as rotten, splintered wood or gout.
