Deck Stripping

deck stripping services

The first step in restoring your deck is stripping it of any previous materials like paint, dirt, and oils. The goal is to prepare your deck before you add a new layer of protectant. If you try to add a fresh coat of paint, or a deck sealant before you prepare it, then your treatment will not last. That’s because any residue will cause the new layer to not bond properly with the wood. Any paint you apply will peel and coatings will let moisture damage your beautiful deck. A professional deck stripping from Aqua Wash is the perfect way to increase the longevity of your backyard living space. 


How Does Deck Stripping Work?

Preparation is key before you ever consider professional deck staining or deck sealing services. 

  1. Our team of deck stripping specialists first makes sure that no dirt or debris is left on any surface with a proper power washing.
  2. We use a combination of professional power washing techniques, scrapers, and environmentally-friendly chemical deck strippers to get the job done.
  3. Once this is finished, we then rinse and neutralize the surface, followed by any additional sanding or stripping if needed.

We carefully evaluate and provide a custom stripping experience to protect your deck because we realize that no two decks are the same.

Will Deck Stripping Damage The Wood?

No! In fact, your deck will suffer more damage if it is not stripped correctly before applying any new coatings. As long as care is taken during the stripping process, it will be perfectly safe. If you feel unsafe stripping your own deck, make sure you contact professionals who can help you with this process. However, make sure that they are professional deck strippers you can trust! We’ve seen our fair share of home surfaces that have been ruined by amateurs.
