Below are answers to some of our most frequently asked questions about wood deck restoration, deck maintenance, and deck refinishing. For specific questions about your individual project, please feel free to contact us.

1. What does SEAL­-A-­DECK do?

SEAL­-A-­DECK restores and maintains natural wood surfaces, including wood decks.

2. What types of natural wood surfaces do you restore and maintain?

Some of the most common natural wood surfaces that we restore and maintain include wood decks, wood fences, gazebos, garage doors, sheds, playsets, cedar siding, log homes, and teak outdoor furniture.

3. How long will it take to clean and seal our wood deck?

Wood deck cleaning and wood deck sealing are completed on two separate days. On the first day, the entire wood deck surface is power washed with eco-­friendly, biodegradable wood cleaners and restorers. Once the wood has dried, we return within the week to apply a coat of premium quality penetrating oil sealer by hand.

4. When can we use our newly sealed wood deck again?

You should be able to walk on your newly sealed wood deck within 24 hours. We recommend that you wait 48 hours before returning heavy items, such as grills and furniture, to your deck.

5. Now that our wood deck has been sealed, how long will it last?

The longevity of the protective finish will vary based on factors including location and environmental conditions. Typically, horizontal surfaces can last up to two years, and vertical surfaces can last up to four years. We also offer a variety of maintenance plans to help protect your deck.

6. Do you provide a warranty for your wood deck refinishing and wood care services?

We offer a one ­year “no worries” guarantee. We are committed to our customers’ satisfaction.

7. Do we need to be at home while you’re working on our wood deck?

No one needs to be at home while we’re working on your wood deck. We only require access to outdoor electric and water. We request that pets be kept inside.

8. Will our plants and flowers be safe while you work on our wood deck?

Yes. All of our wood deck cleaners, restorers, and strippers are eco­-friendly and biodegradable, and do not pose a risk to vegetation. We are always careful to thoroughly rinse away any residue.

9. Will you remove and replace our grill/deck furniture?

We ask that you remove your grill and furniture from your deck and replace it once your deck has dried. We are available to help remove items from your deck when we begin working, but we do charge an additional fee to replace items once your deck has dried.
