Refinishing a deck, siding, shakes, roof shingles, furniture, gazebo or anything wood for that matter, with just a quick power washing and a resealing or re-staining is just a temporary fix. Power Wash Seal uses a proven four-step process recommended by both Cabot and Wolman, authorities in the world of wood restoration, guaranteed to provide long-lasting beauty, protection and bring out the individual character of your wood.

Step 1: Strip

All refinishing requires a chemical stripping process to remove all previous seals that are embedded in the pores of the wood. Using pressure without a stripping agent will simply claw away the meat of the wood and damage the surface.

Step 2: Power wash

The pressure washing process washes the stripping agent as well as any stains from the surface of the wood returning the wood to virgin timber. Reestablishing the correct PH at this time is vital to a long-lasting stain and seal. Afterward, it's a good idea to evaluate any rotted boards. Power Wash Seal of Bergen County is set up with two distinct divisions. Our dry finishing which includes carpentry, staining, and painting will take over after the wet processing.

Step 3: Sand. Repair. Replace.

The stripping, power washing, and even brightening processes can leave rough surfaces and might cause some nail pops to become more obvious. Sanding handrails and pounding nail pops must precede the final stain/seal to ensure like-new results. We will even handle changing out any decayed wood.

Step 4: Stain and Seal

The process of stripping and power washing leaves the surface of the wood ready to accept a level application of stain/seal. Preparation is preeminent. Making certain that the PH is neutral and not repelled by the tannin acids provides a sweet spot so that the alkalinity of the stain seal is sure to penetrate rather than repel.

Power Wash Seal Of Bergen County uses only Cabot for their wood staining and sealing even though it's the most expensive. Consumer Reports consistently rate Cabot #1.

We have conducted our own tests to discover that after the wood has been prepped, when applying the Cabot product, unlike the others, Cabot bubbled!

This served to indicate that the oils were penetrating deeply, displacing air, thus, protecting the wood from within. This is the true art behind the science and ensures that the finish — whether translucent or semi-transparent —will give better protection in the long run and provide even, long lasting results.

So, while other quotes may appear less costly now if you are considering a quote which uses Acrylic Stain, be prepared to pay double next time to get it right....

There are less expensive stain products available for your deck which that are Acrylic based as opposed to oil based. To a certain degree, preparation has something to do with it as well.

Power Wash Seal Of Bergen County uses mostly ~ Cabot- Oil Base Products which is top rated and V.O.C compliant.

Note The Differences:

Acrylic will eventually peel in 2-3 years, especially on pressure treated wood or clear knotless grade where oils will fade. This is because the vapors impregnated will forever need to escape and will subsequently push against the Acrylic thereby creating a bubble which will blister, break then begin to peel.

Stripping an Acrylic Deck Stain requires very expensive chemicals which can double your cost compared to cleaning and removal oil based stains.

Besides being more expensive and degrading to the wood, there are other considerations such as:

  • Environmental ~ including well water, soil, air
  • Health of pets & children
  • Contact with soil in your vegetable garden or plant life

Cheaper now may mean regretting have made the wrong decision in just 2-3 years.

Oil base stains are not petrol chemical based but are Vegetable Linseed based.
