By using the very latest in professional products, we are able to extract years of dirt, grime, mould, and contaminants from deep within the grain your wooden fences and trellis and remove the old dead wood fibres from the surface.
All Deck Guys specialists are professionally trained and certified, so you can trust that your fences will be safely and effectively cleaned and restored back to their original beauty. Whether you just want your fence cleaner or cleaned and stained / painted we have an option to fit your requirements and budget
What we do for you…
STEP 1 – CLEANING & MOSS/MOULD/LICHEN REMOVAL
We start with a comprehensive cleaning process. Preparation is the most critical part of your paint or stain job and can take the longest time, proper preparation is the foundation for quality results. We wash your fence and trellis with modern safe equipment and our “Top-Secret” environmentally friendly cleaning solution that has the following benefits…
- No Phosphates
- Won’t Harm Plants
- Environmentally Responsible
- No Harmful Bleach or Acids
- Non-Corrosive to Metals
Our cleaning process will remove all dirt & mildew and also remove greying, caused by the sun’s ultraviolet rays and kill any mould spores within the wood. We then rinse the surface on a low PSI fan / soft wash with a power washer. Any stubborn stains may need a second or alternate / harsher cleaning & scrubbing process to remove and/or minimise. Once cleaned you can leave the fence in this ‘as new’ condition, however it will begin to turn grey again within a few months as the surface is exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Some customers prefer this look whilst others will have us finish the fence with paints or stains
STEP 2 – FINISHING
There are two main choices for finishing your fence and trellis project
Our Deck Guys oil stains come in a range of colours to suit any wood type and your personal colour preference. Your Deck Guys specialist will advise you on which colours will work best for your timber type. Stains achieve a semi-transparent finish highlighting the natural grain and allowing the beauty of the wood to show through. Our stains are manufactured here in Australia especially for our climate and weather conditions, are tried and tested in our environment and offer unparalleled quality finish..
Paint achieves a solid colour finish which shows the texture but hides the timber grain. Paint offers the highest level of protection from the elements and requires low levels of maintenance. Once a fence or outdoor structure is painted you cannot go back to a stain finish.
When spraying we will mask off areas to minimise overspray and cover plants, trees bushes etc with drop cloths. On some fences where vegetation is attached to the fence we may ask you to trim this back or remove to avoid potential overspray damage. Alternatively we may be able to ‘go around them’ but this may require additional time, therefore additional expense.
STEP 3 – CARE & MAINTENANCE
Regular maintenance of finished timber surfaces is important. Because it is a natural product, timber requires regular attention to prevent the onset of changes that can ultimately lead to deterioration. The timber type, finish, colour and your expectations are all involved in setting the maintenance cycle. Different wood types and different finishes require different maintenance programs but in general fences require maintenance every couple of years. A light clean at the change of seasons is advisable and we can arrange this for you at a very reasonable cost if you like.
