With decks, fences and wood structures the sun, rain and snow are our enemies. While we are busy tending to our busy lives, the climate is working at destroying what we love. Proper maintenance is a must and, in the Dayton / Miami Valley area maintenance needs to be done on a yearly basis.
These are the steps we will take to paint or stain your deck, fence or wood structure.
Step 1 – Inspections and Repair. We will start with a thorough inspection to ensure that there is no rot or decay that would make the structure unstable. We will be paying special attention to any part of the wood structure that comes in direct contact with the ground and the house. These are the most common areas where rot and decay begin. Any damage that is noticed will be discussed with you. During our discussion, we will create a plan to fix those areas.
Step 2 – Cleaning the surface of your deck, fence and wood structure. This is by far the most important step to ensure that your paint or stain will properly absorb and adhere to the wood. Without proper cleaning and preparation even the best and most expensive paints and stains will not last.

We will utilize a variety of brushes and pressure washing techniques in combination with the cleaners to professionally prep your deck, fence and wood structure.
Be assured we will cover all plants and sensitive materials around your wood structures so they will look as beautiful as they do now.
Step 3 – Applying the paint and stain. Now that we have properly prepared the deck, fence and wood structure, we are ready to apply your vision and create a beautiful space. With so many colors and types of products available, our knowledge team will go over all of the options and let you choose what fits your personal style. We will discuss the pros and cons of each product so you can make an educated informed decision.
Things to consider when choosing a product.
Do you want a paint or a stain? We recommend a stain for most projects. The oils from the stain will soak into the wood giving you more protect and a longer life cycle. Unlike stains that absorb, paints sit on the surface and will wear faster giving you a shorter life cycle.
Do you want the wood grain to show through? With stains there are varying degrees of transparency and you will have many choices to choose from. Paints will not allow the wood grain to show but there are endless possibilities to create the space you are looking for.
Depending on the products selected, we will determine how many coats are needed to protect your deck, fence and wood structure and delivery the look that you envision.
With any product selected yearly cleaning is a must. By cleaning yearly, this will prolong the life of any product. To take the worry out of the yearly cleaning, please speak to us, the professionals, about our yearly maintenance programs.
