ABOUT THIS PROJECT

ASSESSMENT: Tom had an enormous deck. It was many years since it was stained. On our innital walk around we noticed a much larger problem than peeled stain. We came across and counted about 70 boards that needed replaced. Mostly all the railings around both decks and stairways, both sets of stair floorboards, along with a large number of boards on the substrate floor. Many had large cracks longer than 6 inches and were soft and full of moisture.  Also quite a few screws were sticking up past the floor level and causing snags to socks. The coating on the floor was almost non existent. The awning cover on top of his pergola was ratted and had holes and was damaged by hail. Tom gave his permission and was about to #GetLimed!

ADVISE:  Lime jumped on the scene and started counting and measuring boards and ran to the store to get “Redwood”, a special request from the client. Next we power washed then needed to countersink and reset all of the exceeding screws. We then started the demo and removed all the rotten wood from the steps, railings, and floors and the cloth from the pergola. We cut and installed carefully with top of the line pre-treated Redwood. Only a 1/3rd of the way there. Next we power sanded all horizontal surfaces to remove old product, mold, and as much discolored wood as possible.  After complete we were finally ready for the last step and Lime put on a thick coat of Sikkens Oil Based Stain. Finally, a few days later the last step of applying the new cloth to the pergola and it was icing on the cake and this job was complete! Client was happy to give us a positive recommendation which was like a cherry on top of the icing :o) (Note: Click on “Testimonies” Tab on Website).
