Your Deck And Fence Is A Big Investment And They Are Not Cheap! Contractors that claim they can restore your deck or fence in as little as 2 days or sooner tend to forget about weather conditions that are needed for deck and fence restoration. Your deck or fence was power washed and the wood needs to dry completely before the staining process can begin. If moisture is trapped in the wood when the stain is applied, the stain will peel within 6 months to a year. It might take 3 or 4 good warm days before it can be properly stained. Contractors offen rush the job so they can get to the next job.

Often contractors will not use a good cleaner. This forces them to use way too much pressure, which will damage the wood, even hard pressure treated wood. You should always question the contractor in relation to wood cleaners.

Some contractors will give you a choice whether or not to use paint or stain. If a contractor uses paint on your deck it will peel and you will always have to use paint. Paint cannot be stripped off exterior wood. Do not be confused about paint or stain.

A good contractor will know what is the best product for your deck or fence, after all, he should be professional and he should know what stains are best for the conditions. Some stains are better in high sun areas and some are not. The customer does not always know this, so it up to the contractor to inform the customer.
