Our Two-Step Process
Left untreated, exterior wood will not last very long in the hot Texas sunshine. At Deerback Wood Care, we restore weathered-looking wood fences, decks, and arbors to a like-new finish. We use a two-step process to protect and beautify your exterior wood. First, we will lightly wash your wood with a cleaning solution. This solution kills the fungus/mildew and prepares the wood for the stain/sealer. Next, we apply two coats of our commercial-grade stain/sealer to protect, beautify, and weatherproof your exterior wood.
The Products We Use
Our commercial grade stain/sealer is more effective than products available to homeowners. We mix our stain/sealer from concentrate using a heavy-duty oil based penetrating sealer that contains mildewcide, pigments (in the color of your choice), resins, water repellents, and powerful UV light absorbers. The stain/sealant we use is a superior product made by Baker’s Gray Away for more than 20 years. The Texas A&M University Forestry Dept certifies that this stain/sealer will last a minimum of 3 to 4 years.
When to Reseal Your Wood
A lot of people wonder how to tell when it’s time to have wood fences resealed. As a general rule, most fences need to be resealed every 3 to 4 years. A new and untreated fence needs to dry for 4 to 6 weeks before applying the stain/sealer in order to allow the wood to fully absorb the sealant. If your fence was built using “pre-dipped” pickets, then your fence is not properly protected since the wood was not allowed to dry before application. “Pre-dipped” or Pre-stained” fences need to be properly sealed within the first year to prevent deterioration.
