    Then this is the tutorial you want. A beautifully refinished wood deck not only looks great, protects and extends the life of the wood but it may also help improve the resale value of your home and allow it to sell faster (if that is a goal).

    • Deck Inspection
    • Deck Cleaning
    • Power Washing (deep cleaning)
