Fuquay Varina Ipe Deck Staining and Restoration
After years of having painters and a pressure washing company maintain this Fuquay Varina Ipe deck they decided to have us come take a look. Unknowingly to the homeowner the past contractor had applied a Flood solid stain on this Ipe deck and Ipe Railings. Although Ipe wood is supposed to be indestructible this deck says otherwise. There was wood rot on the planters and the railing was in very bad shape.
Our recommended restoration included chemically removing as much of the previous stain as we could. This is probably the only Ipe deck railing I have seen and it was a shame to see it in such bad shape. It was decided we would apply a solid stain on the railings and pressure treated wood to compliment the floor. The floor was stripped and sanded down then Penofin deck sealer was applied. The floor was so dry it took 3 coats.
Whoever put the lattice up on the deck sides just attached it directly to the outside deck. We removed all of it and framed it in between the supports for a much cleaner and classier look.
