Keeping your deck in great condition for friends and family requires occasional maintenance to protect against deterioration. To prevent potentially costly repairs, you should be sure to have wood protector or a polyurethane treatment applied.
Additionally, by having your deck inspected by a professional handyman, you could avoid more costly repairs in the future if unknown problems were allowed to proliferate. A Sears Handyman can re-screw or tighten boards, check the deck for wood rot, have the hangers replaced, or perform other on-the-spot repairs as necessary.
To correctly complete the deck refinishing process, the boards first need to be sanded so they can absorb a special cleaning solution, which purges the wood of substances likely to lead to wood rot. Next, a Sears Handyman will need to apply special wood protector to seal the wood from the effects of rain and snow.
Deck Refinishing is primarily comprised of the following steps:
Deck Cleaning / Powerwashing
Decks need to be cleaned before they can be refinished. Any lawn debris - like tree limbs, leaves, and dirt - will need to be cleared from the deck before any further work can take place.
To accomplish this, Sears Handyman experts use high-velocity pressure washers that apply strong streams of water to clear debris from the surface and in between boards. Once the debris has been cleared, Sears Handyman technicians use solutions specially formulated for wood cleaning to thoroughly rinse the wood, purging it of substances known to cause wood rot.
If you need help with your annual deck cleaning / powerwashing or don't have the necessary equipment, you can rely on Sears Handyman Services technicians to help out. Our technicians will apply their experience and use the necessary equipment to get the job done right.

Decks need to be sealed to ensure their protection from rain, snow, and the bleaching effects of the sun. If a deck is left untreated, it will be at risk to the damaging effects of precipitation, which can lead to your deck boards' decomposition. Deck sealing involves several steps that should begin with removing all objects from the deck, followed by an inspection for loose nails, bolts, and boards that should be secured before the staining begins.
The deck will then need to be cleaned. Once the deck has been cleared, inspected, and dried, the sealant can applied. A handyman will need to apply this solution evenly to ensure the wood is equally and completely treated. Certain environmental factors like temperature, expected precipitation, and sun exposure will affect when a deck can be sealed.
Once the solution has dried (after a period of about 48 hours), you can return your furniture to its former place and begin enjoying your deck with the assurance that your deck boards are no longer in danger of damage from rain or precipitation.
