Deck Restoration

Deck Restoration in Atlanta, Georgia.

Many Atlanta, GA homeowners invest thousands upon thousands of dollars building beautiful wood decks onto their homes and properties. Sadly, many of these decks get neglected or not maintained properly and they end up deteriorating and eventually become dilapidated old decks. Our West Coast weather isn’t kind to decking materials that haven’t been taken care of, especially natural wood.

The sun, rain, snow and freezing weather all play a part in the slow destruction of your decking material.

Kingray Remodeling is a full service painting contractor serving Atlanta Georgia. One of the services we provide for our customers is wood deck repainting and restoration. It’s a little more thorough then just a simple repaint though. We actually put a lot of thought into our deck restoration process because we want our customers decks to look great.

Our Deck Restoration Process

Cleaning Your Old Deck

Usually we start with a good thorough power washing to get rid of all the years of dirt and grime. We then use professional grade cleaners that can remove the stains and kill the mold and mildew living off the wood. After we rinse everything away (it’s environmentally friendly by the way) we’re left with a clean wood surface that paint or stain can adhere too.  We’ll also get a much better look at the deck and if anything needs to be repaired.

Repairing Broken or Rotted Wood

It’s not uncommon for a deck that is a few years old to have a few rotten or broken boards.  The corners of the decking planks can lift as the lumber tries to warp or twist from the enviromental conditions and this can overtime cause your deck to look very aged, and almost dilapidated.  We’ll replace any rotten wood and make any repairs necessary.  These services will likely be reflected on your final estimate however.

Neutralizing Your Decks PH

You won’t hear many painters talking about PH but it’s a big deal when you are using cleaners and other professional chemicals to clean wood. Because these cleaners are acidic on the PH scale we need to use a chemical neutralizer to help balance the PH of the wood decking material. Many painters have no idea what this step is and it makes a big difference in your final finish and how long it will last.

Sanding and Other Prep

Once the deck has been fully cleaned and repaired only then can we really begin our prep work on your deck. Our professionals will now proceed to set nails, secure or replace any loose decking material and other agreed upon repairs that need to be completed for a perfect refinishing job. Then we begin sanding your deck, and handrails. You’ll never know we there aside from your beautiful new deck because we take great care in masking your home, gardens and anything not to be painted.

Staining or Painting Your Wood Deck

After our crew has finished with any repairs and the extensive prep work we will be ready to apply your chosen paint or stain. We will meticulously paint every detail, from the decking material to the stairs, to the handrails and everything in between. The stains and finishes we use will be resistant to mold, mildew and capable of handling many years of abuse.

How Much Does Deck Restoration Cost in Atlanta, GA?

That is a good question.  One guarantee is that it’s going to cost less than a new deck.  However, the cost of your deck restoration is going to depend on mainly three things.

1.  The square footage of the deck.
2.  The existing condition of the deck.
3.  Ease of access to the deck and areas to be painted.
