Our Deck Staining & Deck Repair Process

Deck Inspection & Estimation

Our deck rejuvenation starts with an in-depth deck inspection, identifying areas of concern and assessing wood condition we identify any repair needs (including bords replacement and full deck rebuilding). 

  • 9Thorough Inspection: We begin by conducting a detailed examination of your deck to identify areas in need of repair and assess the condition of the wood.

Deck Repair
(Boards Replacement or Full Rebuild)

Our dedicated team of skilled carpenters is proficient in handling a variety of deck repairs and refurbishments. Whether you need replacement of individual floor boards, sections of railings, rotten boards, spindles, or posts, we’ve got you covered. Moreover, if your deck requires extensive repairs or a fresh start, we are equipped to fully rebuild it, ensuring longevity and aesthetic appeal.

Deck Pressure Washing & Preparation

Using a carefully adjusted pressure, we eliminate deep-seated dirt, grime and mold. When deeper cleansing or coat removal is necessary, we utilize eco safe paint stripping agents, followed by wood enhancers and neutralizing solutions.

  • 9Deck Sanding: After pressure washing, we strongly advise sanding for most decks (especially for older decks). This process not only smoothens the surface of deck but also enhances the stain's bonding capability, ensuring a lasting finish.

Deck Staining and Sealing

At Core Improve, we exclusively use professional-grade stains and sealers. For the majority of decks we service, staining is meticulously done by hand, leveraging our distinctive technology that ensures impeccable bonding and enduring results. For larger-scale tasks, we utilize an airless sprayer, followed by a back rolling for best finish.

  • 9Final Inspection: Once staining is complete, we carry out a comprehensive walk-through, ensuring any necessary touch-ups are addressed for a flawless finish.

The sanding process enhances the feel of the deck and can improve the appearance, but sanding is not always required. When preparing your estimate, your local painting team will discuss the best preparation techniques they can do based on the needs of your unique project.

What's the best wat to pick a color for my deck?

If your deck previously stained with a solid color stain, we recommend sticking with a solid shade. If it had a semi-transparent stain, you’re free to select a hue. For solid colors, we suggest procuring a few samples from a Sherwin-Williams store and testing them on your deck for an accurate shade representation, as real-life colors often appear lighter than in catalogs. For semi-transparent choices, an online pick will suffice.

Can I provide a my own stain?

Absolutely! While we value customer preferences, please note that if you provide your own stain, our work will not come with a warranty.
