"The most important thing for any consumer
to know is that wood restoration takes knowledge, skill, and experience
to do the job correctly. The power of a power washer in inexperienced
hands can cause unrepairable damage in a matter of seconds. The
use of pressure like 3,000 PSI to powerwash can destroy wood and
similar surfaces! Using a contractor with experience, knowledge
of the right cleaners, and the proper equipment is the most cost-effective
way to get the job done. That's why it's important to use an established,
experienced contractor instead of concentrating on finding the lowest
price. PWNA Contractors are required to be insured for your protection
and many are certified in their specialty. Choosing a professional
member of PWNA is your best assurance of quality work."
Whether you want to just relax with your friends on your
newly restored deck for leisure or increase the value or your property.
Your deck, fence, gazebo and other wood exteriors are all valuable
assets to your home. It doesn't matter what the age of your wood
surface is, brand new or many years old, they are constantly exposed
to the damaging effects of weather, insects, moss, foot traffic,
physical wear and ground in dirt. Unprotected wood will crack, fade,
split, cup and warp with time, all things that reduce the value
of your home. Rain, snow and morning dew are absorbed by unprotected
wood, causing it to swell. When the wood later dries, it will shrink.
This constant swelling and shrinking causes wood to warp, split,
crack and discolor.
Horizontal deck boards will hold water and snow for
prolonged periods of time which attracts fungal spores, causing
discoloration. Decks are also subject to 40 to 50 percent more direct
sunlight than comparable vertical surfaces, which results in thermal
stresses to wood.
Over 80 percent of wooden decks and fences are pressure treated.
Contrary to popular belief, this treated wood (usually pine) is
not protected against the weather. In fact, it actually makes the
wood surface more porous, leaving it more susceptible to moisture
That's why its so important to protect your investment with services
provided by Aqua Pro. We can restore your old sun damaged gray,
dirty deck to its natural beauty and color and treat it with a high
quality sealant like Ready Seal which will protect it from excess
moisture that can cause exterior wood to shrink and swell severely.
UV light and mildew are other factors that contribute to wood
decay. A sealer that includes UV protection as well as a mildewcide
will help keep your wood exteriors looking beautiful for years to
come by keeping the elements out and the beauty in. All of the wood
care products that Aqua Pro uses are friendly to the environment,
meeting or exceeding the latest environmental regulations.
