Deck & Fence Restoration

Decks, fences and other wood surfaces get dirty and covered with algae, mold & mildew. Washing and sealing your decks, fences and other wood surfaces will protect and prolong the life of your investment.  Without protection, wood rapidly deteriorates from the following elements:

  • Water: Water is absorbed into the wood and washes out the natural wood resins and color. Freezing/thaw cycles can splinter and crack the wood. Also water promotes algae, mold, and mildew growth and rotting.
  • Sun Light: Ultraviolet (UV) rays bleach the wood fibers and break down the cell structure.
  • Mold, Mildew, Algae, and Fungus: Wood and moisture are a natural food source for mold, mildew, algae, and fungus. This generally causes a black, green or gray discoloration.
  • Contamination: It comes in the form of food, dirt, atmospheric pollution, etc. This is a good food source for Mold, Mildew, Algae, and Fungus.

Our Process

  1. We will apply WINDOW GANG Pink, a sodium hydroxide cleaner. This cleaner works similar to hydrogen peroxide, penetrating the wood and will bring the dirt to the surface.
  2. Once the dirt comes to the surface, if needed, we will brush/scrub the wood surface.
  3. Next, at the recommendation of the hardwood manufacturers, we will then high volume, low pressure wash all surfaces at 1500psi at 5.0 gpm to remove all dirt and chemicals.
  4. After washing, an application of X-180 (oxalic acid) will be used to brighten and neutralize the wood.  This step will bring the wood back to a yellow pine color and will resemble a “like new” appearance.  Applying X-180 to your wood surfaces ensure sealant will be absorbed to its full potential which will increase the life of the sealant on the wood.

Our deck and fence cleaner is formulated for cleaning all types of lumber. Immediately after applying our cleaner, you can see the solution working. Just like hydrogen peroxide, you can see the solution pulling out the impurities that are inside the wood. This must be done before sealing your deck, fence and other wood surfaces. Properly maintaining wood decks and fences are very important, since wood in poor condition reduces the value of a home.  Our low pressure cleaning method will not damage lumber and will restore wood to a like new appearance.  After the cleaning process the wood needs to be sealed to protect from day to day elements; rain, sun, snow, wear and tear, etc.

Sealing Decks, Fences and Other Wood Surfaces

Applying sealant will greatly extend the life of the wood surfaces around your home.  Window Gang will professionally apply a high quality clear or tinted sealant, of your choice, within 48 hours after low pressure washing.  Most sealants will dry within 24 hours, which will enable you to enjoy the newly restored wood the very next day.  All of our sealants come with 2-4 year warranties on their products.
