This 15 year old deck was previously painted with 2 different colors of paint & contained 2 types of wood - redwood & a very hard pine. The redwood sanded easily, but the pine was so hard, only about 90 - 95% of the finish sanded off. Some of the paint remained in the cracks. This created an interesting finish. It look like an old antiqued piece of furniture, with some paint still showing along with refinished wood. "It looks great," said Rick, the owner. "It looks better than our neighbor's deck who just had theirs done."

The old finish completely failed. Much of it was curling up on the hand rails & deck. Much of it was a weathered gray, with no color of the natural wood. We sanded the deck & rails completely, exposing new beautiful 1 X 6 pine. After applying 2 coats of Wood Iron, it has a beautiful pine luster.

This project involved refinishing a deck and applying another coat of Wood Iron to shake siding on various walls. The deck needed a complete sanding to remove the old finish. The siding needed a light wash. The deck is made of mahogany.

2635 Little Fish Trail, Elkin Meadows Year: 2009
This job included refinishing a failed deck and handrails, where the old finish peeled away from the surface. The deck finish failed, leaving a blotchy gray solid finish. The owner included all of the supporting columns & beams for the deck and covered driveway entry, as well as all of the fascia around the house exterior. It involved working off of a 40 ft. ladder, so high the birds wouldn't fly!

2885 Ski Trail Lane Year: 2009
This project included refinishing the 3 story log/log sided home and deck. The home had weathered for several years without any protection. This wood was fairly easy to clean and brighten. However, the deck and rails had recently been painted with a wood colored latex paint. The paint was very difficult to remove. We had to use a liquid deck stripper, pressue wash and then sand/hand sand all of the rails to remove the old finish - a very labor intensive task. However the end result displayed the beauty of the log rails & protects them as well.

This restoration project involves a 30 - 40 year old log home. Many of the logs show deep cracks, excess bark, log ends that are badly damaged. Proper restoration greatly slows or stops further wood damage from water, insects and sun. This job is in progress, as no finished pictures are yet available.

2180 Clubhouse Dr. Year: 2009
This project involves removing all of the paint from the siding, deck & rails, & facia. To remove the old surface, we must cob blast the siding. This technique involves a 185 CFS air compressor & a cob blasing machine. Bits of ground up corn cob are blasted at the walls, as with sand blasting. The surface paint is removed, leaving the natural wood siding. The surface is then sanded to remove paint around the knots. Two coats of wood iron is applied. To remove the paint from the deck, we will dismantle the deck & rails. The paint will then be sanded off on a machine called a "Time Saver". It will handle up to 6 - 2X6 decking planks - a real time saver. All of the baulisters, planks & cap rails will be sanded to new wood. Then two coats of Wood Iron will be applied.

The Plath's had a deck that had a dark stain on it that they were dissatisfied with. We removed the old finish with a stain remover & sanding to expose beautiful grain of redwood. "Whow, this look nice."

This home had an old finish that could not be removed with stain removers, so we cob blasted it. This removed the old finish without damaging the wood. After rinising the house, we applied Wood Iron.
