Once your deck has been restored or sealed when new, regular maintenance is the best way to keep the wood looking its best while protecting it from the elements. Our deck maintenance process involves a light cleaning of all the surfaces, spot sanding to remove scratches and other irregular marks and then a sealing with the same sealer that was previously used. Regular maintenance does not usually involve a full deck sanding of the surface so the cost and time involved are both less than with a full restoration.
In our Southern California climate, most decks need to be maintained annually to ensure that they are adequately protected and looking their best at all times. Some hardwoods, such as Ipe and Mangaris, will need maintenance every 6 months for the first year or two before going on a regular annual cycle.
