You are absolutely limiting the lifetime,
integrity and appearance of your deck if you follow conventional
"wisdom" when cleaning and coating it. In addition, you are also
wasting your valuable time and money with most retail deck
Traditional deck stains are merely temporary cosmetic
applications. They just don't last. The best deck coatings, to be
viable, should last a minimum of 3 years. Our product, when
professionally applied by our team, lasts an average of 5 years
before it needs a refresher coat.
Why do people believe that they have to restore the surface of
their deck every couple of years and apply a fresh coat of sealer?
18-24 months is the maximum life expectancy of practically every
deck stain out there! In addition they are given horrible advice
by people in home improvement centers, lumber yards and various
other outlets. The majority of these folks have little or no
experience with cleaning and sealing exterior wood surfaces!
Our decks last the best because we became dedicated to finding a
solution. Over many years we have researched and pinpointed the
major causes of premature deck failure and now with confidence can
say we have found that solution.
In a nutshell, it boils down to our
How many times have you heard a painter say that preparation
is key? Since decks are horizontal surfaces, they hold water,
snow and dew for longer periods of time, which accelerates
damage. The extra dampness attracts dirt, mildew and pollution
from the air. Flat deck surfaces also take on 40 to 50 percent
more U.V. radiation from sunlight than the vertical surfaces.
Because of this increased stress, proper preparation is
absolutely critical to obtain the best results possible.
Without the proper product you are at the least wasting
your time and money and at the worst potentially messing it up
to the point where it will never look good again. Also, it
should be noted that many deck cleaner products available for
sale contain sodium hypochlorite (bleach). Did you know that
sodium hypochlorite is used in the paper mills to help reduce
wood to pulp?! Chlorine bleach destroys wood fibers and destroys
wood color. It is also harmful to surrounding vegetation. If not
thoroughly rinsed (and how do you really know) it will prevent
the deck stain from properly penetrating into the wood. Avoid
these products if you want the best long lasting results.
Every deck is different. That's why it is so important to
have an expert determine the proper procedure for long lasting
results that look great. Differences include age and type of
wood, exposure to the sun and rain, previous coatings applied,
as well as other factors. Cedar decks are particularly prone to
failure unless you know what you're doing. Once these factors
are determined, a careful process of cleaning, drying and
applying the final coat is followed. Each step has specific
guidelines which results in a great looking job with the best
long lasting results.

Deck Care Secrets for Long Lasting Results
DO NOT apply deck stain / sealers
that can be applied through a garden pump sprayer. They are too
thinned down and don't offer enough ingredients for lasting
results. (By the way, this includes almost every deck stain/sealer
DO NOT apply deck stain / sealers that are one-coat-only or
wet-on-wet applications. These are either non-drying or
semi-drying products that resist additional future coats of both
themselves and other products.
DO NOT apply deck stain / sealers that contain silicone or
epoxy. They do not last on exterior wood.
For the best long-term results, experts now say a new deck should
be properly prepared and sealed / stained after 30 days. Beyond
that time, the sooner the better. Source
Our deck stain / sealer can be applied to new wood with
tremendous results after a 30 day stabilization/drying period.
