Pressure Washing Restoration, Sealing, Weatherproofing, and Staining
The forces of nature are constantly causing wooden assets such as decks and fences to become dirty, moldy, gray, and unattractive. Once a new fence or new deck has been exposed to the elements for more than a year, the aging effects are well underway.
Pressure washing of your exterior wood structures and home can help make your assets look as good as new. This process is called restoration. Hiring a professional pressure washing company or individual is critical to achieving professional results. What many homeowners and even some construction companies don't understand is that cheaper is not always better. There is a huge difference between a $150 pressure washer and a $1,500 pressure washer. The same goes between a $1,500 pressure washer and a $5,000 pressure washer. In general the more you spend, the more you get for your money.
Pressure washing enables protective finishes to penetrate and adhere to the lumber much more effectively. This is definitely a way to achieve maximum protection.
Pricing for this pressure washing services vary based on many different factors. Stairs, railings, size of pickets, heights and size of houses all play a factor into the price of a pressure washing job. An average size deck in the Raleigh area usually measures 12' by 12' and would cost about $100 or so to pressure wash.
Without the application of a sealant or stain your deck or fence is under constant attack from the forces or nature. Harmful rays from the sun cause wood to fade, looking gray and weathered. Moisture from punishing rain and snow, as well as morning dew, is quickly absorbed by unprotected wood causing it to swell. The sun then dries the wood causing it to shrink. These cycles of wet and dry, swelling and shrinking, and temperature extremes promotes growth of mold and mildew and causes wood to warp, split and crack leaving your deck discolored and very unattractive. Left unprotected, any deck will be damaged by these conditions. For this reason protective finishes are strongly recommended for all exterior wood.
Protect My Fence® recommends using sealants and stains made by Behr and Olympic, which carry between a 7 year and 30 year warranty on them. These manufacturer's products are the absolute best in the industry and can be found at the major home improvement retailers.
Most customers who choose a clear sealant are wasting their money and time. One competitor, actually states that most customers choose clear sealants. Of course they want you to use a clear sealant so they can continue to take your money year after year. Clear sealants are the worst option for protecting your assets. If you are going to spend all of that money on getting your deck and fence pressure washed and protected, why would you want to have to constantly repeat the process? Especially when the semi-transparent and solid-color finishes last 7-30 years?
These products are offered in a countless shades and colors.
