Pressure Washing & Sealing
Protect your investment in your pier and other wood structures by using our pressure wash and seal services. We recommend pressure washing your deck boards every third year, and sealing the deck against splitting and warping. Pier decking left untreated after eighteen months, begins to split and deteriorization of the wood begins in earnest. Left unattended the process can extend to the stringers, going to the heart of your pier structure. Proper maintenance can add years to your pier, putting off the very expensive replacement. As the old saying goes… “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. This sage advice certainly applies to your pier.
In addition to the pier, we include other wood structures including steps, bulkheads, and decks. Our sealants have:
- Enhanced waterproofing protection
- Advanced SunBlock® UV defense
- Exclusive Scuff Guard® technology
- Provides the best mildew resistant coating
- Backed by the Good Housekeeping Seal
Your pier is an extension of your home. Proper pier maintenance in the form of re-decking maintains a “new look” for years, and preserves the foundation upon which the decking sits… the stringers. If your nails or screws are rusting, the rust travels down to the stringers and hastens the deterioration process.
We only use #1 marine grade pressure treated decking from the best marine lumber mills. Our fasteners are either stainless screws or hot dipped galvanized nails. All are excellent quality and time tested on numerous jobs. And should you wish to use special decking materials such as IPE or composite, we will give you a competitive quote.
Take a look at the condition of your pier and decide if it needs redecking. Better yet, give us a call and we can give you an honest opinion as to its present condition. If in our judgment it needs re-decking, we will give you a written quote, free of charge.
