Supreme Deck Restoration Inc. specializes in wood deck cleaning and restoration in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Wood Deck Restoration in Ann Arbor, MI – Exterior wood restoration is our specialty. Restore decks is what we mostly do. Over 1,200 decks a year. We never use high pressure washing or powerwashing to strip a deck; instead we properly use bio-degradable cleaners and strippers to remove failed stain and sealers to strip a deck along with a light powerwashing or pressure washing to the deck. We let the powerwashing or pressure washing soap & chemicals do most of the work. We only apply non-film building transparent stains that are contractor friendly. We have several crews and can tackle large 100 deck condo complexes in under a week.
Staining, Sealing and Refinishing – Supreme Deck Restoration, Inc. does’t spray our sealers or deck stains, instead they are all hand brushed for top quality and control. Painters and start up deck companies like to spray their coatings to save time and offer lower prices. Painters usually “throw” in the deck to get the house painting job. Painters are not experienced in removal of deck coatings. This is the most important step to a professional deck restoration job. Start up deck service companies think that a simple pressure wash will remove the existing coating and usually tear up the deck with the high pressure. Furthermore, if problems occur these companies can’t be found because they don’t have enough experience to correct their damage. Supreme Deck Restoration only uses top rated coatings on all of our decks that are easily removable. Products we use are TWP Preservative, TWP 1500, Sikkens SRD, Rymar, PPG Sunproof and Olympic semi-transparent oil based deck stains. These oil based coatings are contractor friendly and penetrate deep into the wood for extra protection. Film based coatings like Behr are very difficult and expensive to remove and do not penetrate into the wood.
Rainbow Play System Refinishing, Resealing and Restoration – We can also refinish and restore your rainbow play system or play set. You invested money in your Rainbow Play system and it takes up a lot of space in your backyard, so why not refinish and restore it while you are refinishing or cleaning the deck? We have refinished hundreds of Rainbow play sets over the years back to the original factory finish. Remember, when your Rainbow Play System used to be natural redwood? We can do it for far less than the Rainbow factory will, especially if it is done with the wood deck. We will strip the existing coating from the Rainbow Play System and replace it with the origional Duckback Superdeck Heart Redwood 1905 factory finish.
Deck Building and Construction – We also service decks that have been previously painted or solid color stained. Once a deck has been painted it is extremely expensive to remove. If your deck has been painted you have only a few options to get back to natural. Most homeowners think a power wash or pressure washing will remove all the paint. It really does NOT remove that much. Sanding is one option to remove all the paint. The other is an aggressive chemical strip, combined with agressive power washing or pressure washing, followed with sanding. Sometimes it is just easier and more cost efficient to replace the floor with new wood. The least expensive option is just to repaint the deck again. However, the paint we apply is only as good as the original coating, meaning it will probably peel again on the flooring. We will powerwash or pressure wash the deck, followed up by a light sanding, then re-paint the deck. This deck was painted with Behr Solid Cedar.
Deck Cleaning and Refinishing – A popular option with homeowners is what we call paint and stain. This is where the vertical rails are painted with a solid color stain (usually to match the house) and a transparent coating is applied to the flooring. This will eliminate the chances of the floor peeling. Once the rails however are painted there is no longer the option to go natural in the future. Trust Supreme Deck Restoration to restore your deck.
Deck Repair – We offer complete deck services from the repair of one floor board to a complete deck installation. We weather most of our boards prior to installing them to insure they match up better to the rest of the deck. New cedar lumber has a mill glaze on the wood that acts like a skin and does not allow the stain to penetrate properly causing it to stand out for several years. Most repair companies go to Lowe’s or Home Depot to buy new cedar decking, so when it’s installed the floor looks very uneven (old and new boards). We have solved this problem. When we wash and seal the deck all of the boards are very close to matching up when the job is complete.
Composite and Trex Deck Cleaning – The most common Trex composite material we see is the origional grey Trex. Supreme Deck Restoraion has a process that removes most of the mold and restores Trex composite decking to original. Trex and composite manufactures now recommend that these composite Trex decks be sealed with a water based deck sealer to prevent mold from forming as fast. By using a composite cleaner and by pressure washing and cleaning the surface we will eliminate all the black mold spots. Just a simple power wash or pressure wash will not work alone.
