Deck Sevice Questions
If your deck has any of the above attributes then your deck needs
attention and soon.
Q. My deck grayed after I had it sealed. What happened?
A. It may have not been sealed using UV protectors. When we seal any wood product we always
use sealers that contain UV protectors.
Q. Other than protection, is there any reason to seal my deck?
A. Yes, allowing exposed wood to weather and decay is an eyesore. You made a major investment
in the beautification of your property and it is more costly to replace than to keep it in good
shape with sealing.
Q. I had a new deck installed this year, does it need sealing?
A. It requires a treatment that will allow the wood to dry out from the inside while still
protecting it from the elements.
Q. Can I treat my wood with something other than sealers for protection?
A. Yes, we can protect your deck, fence, furniture etc. with solid stains, semi-transparent
stains, sealers or paint.
Q: How long should I wait before putting stain on a recently built pressure treated wood
A: If you can stay away from stain, try using a pigmented sealer. Stain is very high
maintenance. Especially on pressure treated lumber. If you really need to stain,
apply Flood companies "Seasonit" and let weather over the winter. Then your deck will be
ready to accept a stain.
Q: What is the best and fastest stripper on the market to remove old stain and varnish from
A: I like Wolman Deck Stripper. You may need multiple applications but it cleans up
Q: I have a deck that has latex stain and is peeling badly. I would like to seal the deck.
What should I do?
A: Try Wolman Deck Stripper, you may need two applications. If any stain remains than you
will need to sand. Then clean and seal the deck.
