Fall is here!

Fall is here which means it's not too late to wash your house, protect your deck and clean your gutters.

Fall Pressure Washing RVA

Fall is the perfect time to prepare for the unforgiving winter months. Washing your home is an inexpensive way to beautify the exterior in preparation for the fall and holiday decorations. Cleaning your gutters is a much needed maintenance practice to insure your beautiful home stays clean. Staining your deck helps keep the structure looking good and protects it during the winter, preventing water intrusion. Moisture from the snow and rain can penetrate into the woods core, causing the wood to split, thus creating freeze-thaw damage. A good rule to follow is to have your deck cleaned each year and re-sealed every 2-3 years.

Aggregate-Crack Repair and Seal in Williamsburg

What is exposed aggregate?

Exposed aggregate is a type of concrete finish commonly used for driveways, walkways and patios. The surface can get dirty fairly easily because of the nooks and crannies in between the stones. The gravel in the concrete mix is partially exposed in the finished surface making them highly susceptible to deterioration. When weathering happens small stones and pebbles dislodge from the underlying concrete foundation. Cleaning it periodically and keeping it sealed as needed are key components of any good maintenance program.

Benefits of Sealing:

• Improves appearance

• Protect against stains

• Blocks UV rays that cause fading

• Reduce mold/mildew infiltration

• Increase longevity of surface

• Makes it easier for cleaning and maintenance

• Keeps stones from abrading

• Minimizes damage from water intrusion and freeze-thaw damage

Ready Seal Wood Stain

 

Ready Seal is an oil based and professional grade wood stain and sealer in one.

 

If your looking for a fencing product with a natural look, wood is an appropriate selection. This fence was built using southern yellow pine. In order to prepare the fencing for stain/sealing, we washed with heated water and a mixture of sodium hydroxide and a mild surfactant. This preparation removes all organic and atmospheric pollutants. The final preparation was to neutralize the surface using a wood brightener. We waited two days and then checked with our electric moisture reader to make sure the moisture content was <12% . Once we verified a low moisture content we proceeded with the application of Ready Seal.

The life expectancy of this product is 1-3 years on horizontal surfaces, and 3-5 years on vertical surfaces.

Deck Staining- Residential Wood Deck

Deck staining anyone?

When it comes to deck staining you have many color options. A clear finish allows the wood to weather gray naturally. A semi-transparent finish has subtle color that allows the wood grain and texture to show. A semi-solid finish has the same rich color as a semi-transparent but it hides some of the wood grain while allowing the texture to show through. A solid finish is a rich and opaque color that allows the texture of the wood to show through only. This customer made a wonderful choice and selected a solid stain called Pewter.
