Power Washing is Vital for the Health of Your Deck

After this brutal winter, it seems that everyone is spending as much time outside as possible. There is a lot of fun to be had this time of year; however, it is important to not overlook the work that must be done to ensure that this is the greatest summer ever. With all the gardening, lawn work, and spring-cleaning currently taking place, it can be easy to overlook where the majority of your summer fun takes place: your deck. The great news is that Deck ReDo is here to take the hassle out of deck maintenance for you!

Harsh winters (like the one we survived) can wreak havoc on your deck. Dirt and grime left behind after the snowmelt can lead to a less-than-appealing result. If you have had your deck stained and sealed within the past few years and are still unpleased with its dingy appearance, the solution may be as simple as power washing.

Power washing uses a high-pressured stream of water to rid the wood of debris and help restore your deck’s original wood stain. Along with drastically improving the overall appearance of your deck, power washing has many other benefits, including:

  • Much more efficient and thorough than other deck cleaning techniques
  • Reverses aging and extends the life of your deck
  • Eliminates molds and allergens that accumulate on wood
  • Locks in deck stain to maintain great appearance throughout the year

The team of professionals at Deck ReDo offers the best deals in the Twin Cities for power washing services. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and have the best-looking deck in the neighborhood this summer!

This Minnesota winter and chilly spring are finally coming to an end. The continued cold and snow has not made for a great motivator to go outside and start on cleaning and deck restoration. You may be tempted to ask questions like: “Should I stain my deck after all? Is it really that important?”

Deck ReDo’s short answer is yes – it is. Though it’s tempting to just let your deck be a little bit dingier this year, that mild discoloration isn’t the only issue. Decking sealers and wood stains go beyond a beautiful exterior and can actually contribute to a longer-lasting structure that adds value to your home.

Deck stain and sealers work together to help protect wood against:

  • Moisture
  • Weathering
  • Dirt and grime
  • Cracks and splits
  • UV rays
  • And more

Sun, water, and use are the main culprits behind damage and discoloration, and it is important to protect your deck through professional deck refinishing services. Our deck staining specialists at Deck ReDo assist Minneapolis/St. Paul and the surrounding areas with full deck maintenance, from cleaning and pressure washing services to sealants, stains, paints, and more.

To ensure an effective, attractive result, our team uses only the best-quality deck sealers and wood stains and applies them by hand. This gives you an even finish and saves you money through lower waste.

Contact the Deck ReDo team today. We’ll make sure your deck is stunning and ready for summer, while you stay inside where it’s warm!

If you cant ReDo, start new

Author: MN Deck Stainer

We are frequently asked, “can our deck be fixed or do we need to tear down and rebuild?”

Let’s face it, most decks we come across are in need of some good old TLC.  Stain has faded, the deck has become gray, mildew has turned the deck green, the boards are starting to splinter, or the deck just isn’t impressive.

After a quick phone call to Deck ReDo a game plan is established and before you know it the deck looks good as new and you are back on your deck soaking up every short minute that MN summers have to offer.

HOWEVER, some decks are so lucky and major repairs are needed.   Perhaps too many boards have rotted out, support beams are no longer sufficient, or perhaps the deck just isn’t what it could be.

Today I had the pleasure of touring Ugly Deck’s show room and see what they are up to, and I must admit, I liked what I saw!  So many of us enjoy the real cedar decks – the ability to try new stain colors, see true wood grains, and keep the outdoor feel when on the deck.  Others like the lower maintenance of the composite decking.  Whatever it is you fancy, Ugly Deck aka All Seasons Building Company, will help you make the right choice.

So today Deck ReDo gives a big deck restoration ugly deckshout out to some guys doing it right – Bill and Josh of Ugly Deck: http://www.uglydeck.com/

As always feel free to contact Deck ReDo with questions or comments, we  are happy to be helpful in any way we can.

Cheers,

TWP color options and examples

Author: MN Deck Stainer

Twp comes in a variety of colors.  The “Main Choices” Below are all able to be mixed, so if you want a little more red, or brown or rust, we can mix and match to create the color you want.  Cedartone is the most popular color as it was developed to bring out some of the natural yellows and slight orange undertones of natural cedar – the most common wood used in MN for decking.

Included below are two slightly different sets of colors as they can vary slightly.  Also please note: the darker colors do get a bit hotter in the summer, this is often overlooked but quickly remembered on those hot July days.

The main choices are:

Cedartone
Honeytone
Rustic
Dark Oak

Some alternate choices:

Redwood – is more red than these depict
Prairie Gray – is much more grey and solid color than these depict

Minneapolis Deck Owners

deck stainersMinneapolis and surrounding area deck owners, can you believe that just two weeks ago today we were having snow?  Just one week ago our lows were in the 30’s!

Good news, the forecasters are telling us that spring is here – for real this time.  Time to roll out the grills, plant your annuals and seed your grass.  That’s right we survived the winter and now are ready to enjoy the Minnesota Summer – arguably one of the best summers around.

minneapolis award winnerFUN FACT:  There is only one month that MN has never seen snow!

Be sure you are squeezing the most out of summer, and if you need help with this be sure to call Deck ReDo, your experts on deck staining and deck sealing :)

Before you stain your deck!!

Author: MN Deck Stainer

Spring is here the snow has melted and we are itching to get out on our decks.  For many of us we are looking at a deck that may have seen better days.  If you are considering having your deck or staining it yourself, do yourself a favor and give us a call.  We offer free estimates with absolutely no obligations.

Considering staining it yourself?  Have you done a google search for: how do i stain my deck or how to stain a deck?  Have you gone to the local handy man store and asked what they recommend?  Do yourself a favor and call the pros at Deck ReDo.  You will learn that not all stains are created equally, preparing a deck does not involve scrubbing with a chemical cleaner, and that some stains will end up peeling and costing you years of grief (that’s right, your choice in stain could leave you stuck for a couple years – minimum).

Semi transparent solid stain, penetrating oil based stain, paraffin, wax, oil rub….   Give us a call and let us help you out.  952-303-1311
