Below are answers to some of our most frequently asked questions about wood deck restoration, deck maintenance, and deck refinishing. For specific questions about your individual project, please feel free to contact us.
SEAL-A-DECK restores and maintains natural wood surfaces, including wood decks.
Some of the most common natural wood surfaces that we restore and maintain include wood decks, wood fences, gazebos, garage doors, sheds, playsets, cedar siding, log homes, and teak outdoor furniture.
Wood deck cleaning and wood deck sealing are completed on two separate days. On the first day, the entire wood deck surface is power washed with eco-friendly, biodegradable wood cleaners and restorers. Once the wood has dried, we return within the week to apply a coat of premium quality penetrating oil sealer by hand.
You should be able to walk on your newly sealed wood deck within 24 hours. We recommend that you wait 48 hours before returning heavy items, such as grills and furniture, to your deck.
The longevity of the protective finish will vary based on factors including location and environmental conditions. Typically, horizontal surfaces can last up to two years, and vertical surfaces can last up to four years. We also offer a variety of maintenance plans to help protect your deck.
We offer a one year “no worries” guarantee. We are committed to our customers’ satisfaction.
No one needs to be at home while we’re working on your wood deck. We only require access to outdoor electric and water. We request that pets be kept inside.

We ask that you remove your grill and furniture from your deck and replace it once your deck has dried. We are available to help remove items from your deck when we begin working, but we do charge an additional fee to replace items once your deck has dried.
Yes, we will evaluate your deck and inspect the deck boards, stairs, railings and posts to see if any need to be repaired or replaced. All of our repair services are backed by our worry-free guarantee.
If the substructure is sound, reDecking is a great option which will eliminate the expense of tearing it down and rebuilding a new deck from the ground up. Our reDecking process renovates your deck by removing all of the worn out decking and railing, and replacing it with new premium decking materials.
