Deck Stripping Job
Deck Stripping Job
Deck stripping can be a daunting task, especially when dealing with coatings that are difficult to remove. As a professional deck contractor, I occasionally receive requests from homeowners who need help removing a bad deck coating.
The first step in any deck stripping job is to perform a test patch. This involves applying the stripper to a small section of the deck to ensure that it effectively removes the coating without damaging the wood. Once we’ve determined that the stripper works as intended, we can begin the full stripping process.
In one recent job, the homeowner had rolled on a coating that had built up over time, and had attempted to strip it themselves, causing damage to the wood. When I arrived on site, I could see the damage and buildup clearly. However, I have to give the homeowner credit for knowing when to call in a professional and having the humility to admit that they needed help.
We had to work quickly to get the deck stripped and ready for the homeowner’s New Year’s Eve party, which was only a few days away. We worked diligently and were able to finish the job on Friday, the 30th, just in time for the party.
After the deck was stripped, we began the staining process. The homeowner had chosen a beautiful stain color that would complement their outdoor space. I made sure to apply the stain evenly and thoroughly to ensure a long-lasting finish.
In conclusion, deck stripping is a challenging task, but with the right tools, knowledge, and experience, it can be done effectively and efficiently. If you’re dealing with a bad deck coating, don’t hesitate to call in a professional to help you get the job done right.
The first is a test, then I stripped it and the third I had started staining it
