A good pressure washing with a good cleaner is a great way to begin the prep work on a deck. All edges and surfaces should be checked over splinters or roughed up areas. Special attention is taken on areas that you touch. We look for nails that need to be pounded in and any loose areas that may need to be re-secured. 2 coats of a premium oil based deck sealer will renew the color and finish bringing it back to life protecting it for 2 to 5 years depending on weather, sun, and moisture that your deck is exposed to.
