The Deck/Porch Refinishing & Staining Process
From Preparation to Staining, Plus Other Work we Performed at this Morris Plains Home
If you’ve followed our work you know that deck refinishing services is one of our primary specialties. This summer alone we refinished, restored, restained and renewed countless decks, porches, patios and balconies. With advancements in composite decking material, it’s very rare to see new wood decks being built. But here in NJ many homes are older, and many have structurally sound and secure wooden decks or porches that can simply be refinished to extend their life. That was the case for this Morris Plains, NJ home. The homeowners hired us for the 5th time in less than 18 months – this time they wanted their deck refinished before the cold, and there was also some rotted drywall in the garage. While my brother Mike managed the drywall repair, priming and painting of the garage, I refinished the porch.
Preparing and Refinishing the Deck…
I prepared the deck/porch for staining by power-washing with bleach to kill mold and mildew and remove any failed stain. While we were at it, we also washed the vinyl siding and the porch’s awning where there was dirt and mildew, and we power-washed the entire concrete patio surround. It made a big difference – the cement looks like new, and that makes the porch look that much better. We weren’t obligated to do the extra pressure-watching, but the home needed it. At CraftPro we always put in extra effort to help our customers, and they’ve thanked us for it. After the deck had dried we spent a good deal of time tending to the unsightly splits, cracks and screw-holes in the wood, which were filled with a strong, durable exterior wood-filler. We then power-sanded the entire porch, and the deck was ready to be stained. Two – and in some places three – coats of Sherwin Williams brand SuperDeck solid color deck stain (color is “Russet Brown” – SW3045) were applied to achieve a solid coating that will preserve the wood and protect it from the elements, thereby extending the life of this deck.
