Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us have been spending more time at home than ever before. Many homeowners are looking for ways to update and improve their outdoor living spaces. With spring just around the corner, now is a great time to consider how taking care of your deck can refresh your outdoor living space. Your deck can be a place where you can relax, an alternative remote work or remote learning location, or a safe space for a social distanced gathering.

The rain and snow experienced in the Pacific Northwest can be hard on decks and yours may be in need of some TLC in order for it to look its best. Proper maintenance of your deck will not only enhance the look and feel of your outdoor living space, but will also improve the longevity of your deck.

Schedule a Professional Cleaning

Love how your deck looks again! When you love the way your deck looks, you’re more likely to enjoy the space. A professional cleaning can go a long way in reviving your deck. Our cleaning services use green products to remove unwanted moss, mold, and algae. This not only helps to bring your deck back to its original beauty, but also increases the longevity of your deck.

Deck Refinishing

If your deck could use a bit more of a refresh, refinishing may be the way to go. As part of our refinishing process, we sand your deck to remove unwanted splintering, old stain, and weathered appearance. Next, we apply a new stain by hand. Staining not only creates a fresh appearance, but protects your deck from the harsh Pacific Northwest elements. We offer eco-friendly staining options, as well as oil-based stains with UV protection to prevent fading.


While decks provide the perfect outdoor gathering space for socially-distanced get-togethers, it’s important to know that your deck is structurally safe before enjoying the space with family or friends. You should check to ensure that all railings and stairs are in good condition. Additionally, inspect the individual boards on your deck for any disturbances or safety hazards. If your deck is in need of repair, our team can provide these services as well.
