Here in our Knoxville climate, decks, railings and fences often turn gray from weather exposure, green from mildew and mold, or brown and black with dirt. Many power washing services will merely blast away residue, which temporarily restores the color but leaves the wood unprotected against rot and weather damage.
George Hamby Painting LLC. knows the proper way to refinish exterior woodwork, and we do not skip any steps to save time. Using expert techniques, low pressure equipment, and specialized detergents, we take the time to thoroughly prepare every surface—the only way to achieve a quality, lasting finish. Using the finest products, we stain and seal the surface to enhance and protect the inherent beauty of the woodgrain.
George Hamby Painting LLC. restores the natural attraction of wood decks and fences, and ensures that they are preserved against rot and decay, preventing the need for more costly repairs.
Common Deck Stain Mistakes
The most common cause of complaint or premature failure in wood finishes is over-application. Many do-it-yourselfers are overzealous in their use of stains and sealers, causing significant problems in the refinished deck. Most deck finishes are designed to penetrate the wood surface and remain in the wood to provide long-lasting protection. Putting on too much of these coatings leads to a buildup of material, forming a film which can ultimately peel or crack. With water-repellent products, over-application can result in a surface which is waxy, sticky, or slick. Stains that are applied too thickly will often result in permanently sticky surfaces because the material is unable to dry properly.
