Deck Staining project Raleigh NC

Deck Cleaning and Staining Raleigh NC

This Raleigh Deck project came out great. The finishing of this Deck project with TWP Stain put the final touches on this relaxing backyard for these North Raleigh Homeowners. This was a Custom Bamboo deck with custom made metal railings that were powder coated. The Firepit and Hardscaping stone tied the deck into the stamped concrete patio and walkway. 

We are already booking jobs 4-6 weeks out so if you are thinking about doing something this year call today. We are an innovative and very creative outdoor living company.

We applied 2 coats of Twp deck stain to finish things off.

  1. We have a 1200 sqft deck in Raleigh NC that we need to get cleaned and stained. I saw from the picture that you guys use TWP deck stain, that is what we have always used. Is it to early to get this done now?

      Hi Mary, The weather in Raleigh is certainly unpredictable during the winter but there are plenty of days the weather cooperates for us to clean and stain decks. In fact we stained 3 decks last last week in the Raleigh NC area. TWP is probably the deck stain we use the most but we do use a few others that work better for certain instances. All of the deck stains we use are contractor quality and won't be found in Home Depot or Lowes. We would be happy to give you a free estimate, you can either email/call/or fill out an online estimate request.
  2. Do you guys recommend Cabot deck stain? We are having our Raleigh house painted and the painters want to use the Cabot stain but after reading reviews on that website they don't give it good reviews. What stain would you recommend?

      Hi Steve, We personally don't use Cabot stain at all. We used a few of their products years ago but it seemed like they changed things up to meet the VOC laws in other states and the product didn't work like it used to. We use TWP oil deck stain in a semi-transparent for most of the Raleigh NC decks and fences we clean and stain. We would be happy to setup a time to come out and show you some samples of the TWP deck stain on boards and give you an estimate if you would like? There is a lot that goes into wood restoration and we find a lot of times even the best of painters don't fully understand things like having the right ph balance in the wood, and testing moisture content of the wood prior to staining. The other big difference of a true wood restoration firm are things like sanding of the floors and handrails, Inspecting the deck for safety, repairs, etc...
  3. We had a painter apply a solid color paint to our Wake Forest deck last spring and we don't like the look of it. We were told our deck was in really bad shape and a solid color was the only option. We had a few companies look at it this past fall and were told nothing could be done. I noticed on your website you mention you replace floors as well? I was wondering how much more expensive is it to replace the floor versus trying to strip it and then refinish it?

      Hi Jill, To answer your first question. We have stripped numerous solid finishes from deck floors and railings, so yes it's possible. We tend to not do that as much anymore for a few reasons. Stripping the solid stain off the deck is a very labor intensive process and when that's done you still have an older wood deck. I have found we can replace the floor and railings for just a little more versus going the stripping and refinishing route. I am happy to setup an appointment to come out and show you why our upgrade process is the smarter choice. In most cases we remove the old floor/railing and install the new one the very same day.We then come back a few weeks or month and stain everything. Bob
