To make the most of your outdoor spaces, it’s important to maintain them properly. Pressure cleaning is a crucial step for all homeowners with decks and fences, as it will preserve their durability and appearance. Read on to learn about the benefits of deck sealing and cleaning.

Pressure Cleaning

With pressure cleaning, it becomes easier to remove built-up grime and dirt. Once decks are cleaned in this manner, the chosen sealant will better adhere to the surface. Pressure cleaning doesn’t just improve a deck’s appearance; it also preserves its structural integrity

Pressure-Treated Cedar and Redwood

Pressure-treated wood is commonly used in decks and other outdoor structures. It’s popular for its ability to withstand rot, weather, and insect infestation, and it makes for easier deck maintenance. Pressure cleaning of pressure-treated wood prolongs its life, and most homeowners schedule it once a year to remove months of built-up dirt.

Vinyl, Composite, and Plastic

Not all decks are made of wood. Many of Chapel Hill’s homeowners opt for low-maintenance options like vinyl, plastic, and composite. If your home’s deck looks dirty and dull, don’t replace it—clean it! Contact us today to learn how we can make your composite, vinyl, or plastic deck look as good as new.

No matter the material composition of your deck, pressure washing will improve its feel and appearance. Most of the area’s homeowners pressure wash their decks during spring, which means our services are in high demand. Call or click to schedule a visit from one of our licensed, insured technicians.

Deck Sealing: The Benefits

Chapel Hill’s deck owners have three options when it comes to preservation: sealing, staining, and painting. While all three have certain merits, sealing brings unique advantages that you should consider before deciding. Here are a few of the biggest benefits of deck sealing.

  • Preserving the natural beauty of wood. Even a light stain alters the color of wood while preserving its grain. If you like the natural look, clear sealants are the way to go.
  • Adding sheen. One of the best things about deck sealant is that it comes in numerous varieties. Some sealers are all but invisible. However, if visual impact is what you’re after, choose a sealant that adds a noticeable sheen.
  • Keeping moisture out. Deck sealants get deep into the wood, waterproofing it by generating a moisture-repelling surface film. Sealing prevents wood rot, mildew, mold, and fungal growth—all of which can ruin an otherwise strong deck.
  • Increased cost-efficiency. Even when it’s done by a professional, sealing is a cost-effective way to finish a deck. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
  • Sealing saves your deck. Staining and painting, while attractive, do not offer the same protective qualities of sealing.When revitalizing an old and damaged deck—or when building from scratch—we recommend sealing because it protects wood and prevents damage due to time and exposure.
  • Sealers can be used along with stains. A lot of our customers like to stain their decks to add UV protection and pigmentation. However, stains don’t provide the protection for which sealants are known. There are combination stains and sealers that offer the best of both worlds, and we can tell you all about them.

These are just a few of the advantages of deck sealing. At Greg Tilley’s Pressure Cleaning, we will do what it takes to ensure that you get all the benefits of pressure cleaning and deck sealing.
