Why didn't my Howell, Michigan wood deck hold up or last?

There are several reasons why deck sealers and stains do not hold up. The most common is that the deck was not prepped or cleaned right. Any time a finish or oil based coating is applied; all of the previous coating or treatment must be removed. Proper cleaners must be used to open the wood fibers to accept stain. We do this by using a mild deck stripper and pressure washing the deck with low pressure, letting the chemical do the work. If all the prior coatings from the deck is not removed the new coating will not penetrate deep enough into the wood and eventually fail. Another reason deck coatings also fail because an inferior product was used, such as hybrid deck coating claiming to last 5 years that form a film.

Home Depot or Lowes market their deck stains as the "longest lasting" or "Best Deck Stains". You will be lucky to get a summer out of most of them. Behr Premium "oil modified" water based hybrid stain does not penetrate the wood, instead it puts a film on top of the wood which will eventually peel. Due to VOC laws, box stores stock water based products for novice users and carry very little premium oil based penetrating coatings for deck cleaning contractors. The only exceptions are the true oil based Olympic and Cabot oil based coatings found at Lowes and Menards.
(STAY AWAY FROM BEHR COATINGS FROM HOME DEPOT! THEY WILL COST YOU A LOT TO REMOVE!)

The last reason deck coatings fail is that the stain was sprayed over a surface that was not prepped right. Deck restoration is a process that needs to be properly followed. Simply pressure washing a deck or a new deck is not properly prepping the wood to accept stain. The correct process is Stripping the old finish with correct chemicals, pressure wash, brighten, let wood dry, and stain. When working with chemicals on the wood, remember it needs to be properly ph balanced to get desired results. Finally, spraying deck coatings just doesn't work the oil stain evenly into the wood as well as hand brushing it does. A high end oil based deck stain like TWP 100 or Sikkens Cetol Srd is best when applied by brushing it for a professional even satin finish.

Deck Cleaners, Refinishers near Howell, Michigan

Your deck needs to be professionally finished if you want expert results. Supreme Deck Restoration is one of the premier deck restoration companies in Southeast Michigan (MI) area including Howell, MI to help restore your deck professionally. Please don't make the mistake a lot of home owners make by hiring an inexperienced "guy" or handyman to simply pressure wash and stain the deck because they cost less. There is much more to it for lasting results. For professional restoration results all the old sealer must be chemically removed and stripped off the deck before any new sealer can be applied. Cedar grain will naturally raise a little when it's stripped, so a professional wood restorer will remove as much of the fuzzies as possible. Because cedar loses its natural oils over time, a professional grade oil based deck sealer should be considered. A penetrating oil based wood sealer such as TWP, Olympic, Rymar, Messmers, Cabot, Sikkens Srd, Penofin, or Superdeck stain will help replenish and protect the wood inside and out and offer a rainbow of colors for your deck.

It is recommended by all the top deck stain manufactures that every two years a deck should be cleaned and sealed. New decks still need to be cleaned to remove all of the mill galze. However, sealers on a new cedar deck will last more than a season. This is because the wood will not hold as much oil based sealer and high levels of natural oils are still present.

.......Remember this,.. chemicals clean and water rinses...

Howell, Michigan Wood Restoration


Exterior wood restoration is our specialty. Restore decks is what we mostly do. Over 1,500 decks a year. We never use the force of high pressure washing or powerwashing to strip a deck; instead we properly use bio-degradable cleaners and strippers to remove failed stain and sealers to strip a deck, along with a light powerwashing or pressure washing to rehab the deck. We let the pressure washing soap & chemicals do most of the work. We only apply non-film building transparent stains that are contractor friendly. We have several crews and can tackle large 100 deck condo complexes in under a week.

Howell, Michigan Staining, Sealing & Refinishing
Supreme Deck Restoration, Inc. does't spray our sealers or deck stains, instead they are all hand brushed for top quality and control. Painters and start up deck companies like to spray their coatings to save time and offer lower prices. Painters usually "throw" in the deck to get the house painting job. Painters are not experienced in removal of deck coatings. This is the most important step to a professional deck restoration job. Start up deck service companies think that a simple pressure wash will remove the existing coating and usually tear up the deck with the high pressure. Furthermore, if problems occur these companies can't be found because they don't have enough experience to correct their damage. Supreme Deck Restoration only uses top rated coatings on all of our decks that are easily removable. Products we use are TWP Preservative, TWP 1500, Sikkens Cetol Srd, Rymar, Messmers UV Plus and Olympic semi-transparent oil based deck stains. These oil based coatings are contractor friendly and penetrate deep into the wood for extra protection. Film based coatings like Behr are very difficult and expensive to remove and do not penetrate into the wood.

Supreme Deck is a licensed and insured Michigan deck building company. Deck floor replacement or resurfacing is becoming a popular option with many deck owners. It is a less expensive option than a complete build. Expect a wood deck to last for 20 years before replacing any boards. The break even point for a composite deck is 11 years. If you are staying in the house under that time frame consider a cedar deck over a composite deck. Wood decks cost half of composite decks.

Howell, Michigan Deck Painting Contractors
We service decks that have been previously painted or solid color stained. Putting Solid color stain on a deck is corrective work. You never want to paint a deck floor. If your deck has been painted you have only a few options. Pressure washing DOES NOT remove paint. Sanding is one option to remove all the paint. The other is an aggressive chemical strip, followed with sanding. If you want a natural stain replace the floor with new wood. The least expensive option is just to repaint the deck again. However, the paint we apply is only as good as the original coating, meaning it will probably peel again on the flooring (no matter what the paint can says). No contractors can guarantee that a solid color will last more than a summer or two on the floor. This deck was painted with Behr Solid Cedar

Deck Leveling in Howell, Michigan
This past spring and fall were one of the worst our state has seen in years, causing many decks in Howell, Michigan to sink and fall out of level.  This deck in Dexter, MI was an example of what we saw on a weekly basis.  Our crews replaced 5 posts that were only sunk 36" into the ground.  Michigan code requires you to go at least 42"  into the ground, below the 36" frost line.  Clay expands causing the ground to push anything out, including concrete and deck poles.  There is no warranty on deck leveling.  Unlike Handyman, Supreme Deck Restoration, Inc carries full workman compensation and liability insurance for this type of work.    
 

Howell, Michigan Deck Cleaners & Refinishers
A popular option with homeowners is what we call paint and stain. This is where the vertical rails are painted with a solid color stain (usually to match the house) and a transparent coating is applied to the flooring. This will eliminate the chances of the floor peeling. Once the rails however are painted there is no longer the option to go natural in the future. Trust Supreme Deck Restoration to restore your wood or composite deck.

Howell, Michigan (MI) Deck Repair & Building
We offer complete deck services from the repair of one floor board to a complete deck installation.  We try to weather most of our boards prior to installing them to insure they match up better to the rest of the deck. New cedar lumber has a mill glaze on it that acts like a skin and does not allow the stain to penetrate properly causing it to stand out for several years.  Most repair companies go to Lowe's or Home Depot to buy new cedar decking, so when it's installed the floor looks very uneven (old and new boards).  We have solved this problem.  When we wash and seal the deck all of the boards are very close to matching up when the job is complete.
 
Howell, Michigan Wood Cleaning & Cleaners
The cedar that most people are using for decks is not as rot resistant as the cedar that was being used 30 years ago. In the old days, cedar and redwood decks were built from old growth lumber, which was loaded with oils and natural chemicals that made it highly resistant to insect attack and decay. These days, the wood is coming from new growth and managed forests. This newer lumber contains lots of sapwood which will rot decay faster.  Plus, it cracks and splinters. And if it's not kept treated, it generally looks bad after a few years. Supreme Deck Restoration has the experience to service exotic hardwood decking such as IPE, Bamboo, and Mahogany.

We ARE NOT a Howell, Michigan $99 Low cost deck Cleaning or Pressure Washing Company
This is what can happen when an inexperienced low cost deck restoration company is hired. Remember the saying "you get what you pay for", it is no different in our industry. We get several calls a season to finish work other companies started. This picture is an example of what we see every summer. The stain on the brick will not come out and the landscaping around the deck (that is not shown) is browned out and dead. Could you imagine coming home to this? Don't let a photo of your deck make it here. We see these jobs all over the Howell, Michigan, (MI) area. Most painters and start-ups like to spray their stain to save on time. Deck stain is very light and travels far even with slight amounts of wind; cleanup can be a nightmare, if not impossible. All of our stain is HAND BRUSHED for control.

Howell, Michigan (MI) Composite Cleaning
Trex composite Pressure Washing and deck cleaning



Here is an example of the mold that forms on composite decking material. Supreme Deck Restoration has a process that removes most of the mold and restores composite decking, Choicedek, and TimberTech very close to the original color.

Composite manufactures now recommend that these composite decks without the pvc wrap should be sealed with a water based deck sealer to prevent mold from forming as fast. By using a composite cleaner and pressure washing the composite deck we can eliminate most of the black mold spots. Just a simple power wash or pressure wash will not work alone. All Trex and other composite decks need to be cleaned yearly for routine maintenance in Howell, Michigan (MI).

A composite waterborne deck sealer will prevent mold from forming as fast on any composite deck without a pvc wrap. Azek, Trex Transcends, Trex Select, and other PVC decking with a wrap are the only decks we see that do not need to be sealed. Before replanking or replacing your deck floor with composite.
