Deck Cleaning | Restoration | Staining
Exterior wood restoration is our specialty, it’s is all we do. We never use high pressure to strip a deck; instead we properly use bio-degradable cleaners and strippers to remove failed stain and sealers to strip a deck. We only apply penetrating oil-based transparent stains that are contractor friendly. We typically use highly rated TWP stain, Sikkens Srd, and Olympic semi-transparent stains. Supreme Deck Restoration has several experienced crews that can tackle large condo complexes in under a week. For new wood decks we recommend that they weather for less than a month. After a new deck mill glaze is removed the fibers stand up, we sand the deck to ensure the finish comes out professional looking. All the stain that we apply is brushed for top quality.

Deck Repair and leveling in Michigan
Most people think that their deck is sinking when it becomes off level. However, in truth we find that the outer posts typically rise or heave from the frost or deep freeze from Michigan winters. Once the post pushes out of the ground it needs to be cut down. There are a few ways to do this or replace the post.
Above are some examples of the decks we see on a daily basis. Improper drainage, posts not sunk deep enough below the frost line, poor clay/soil, etc. We are a licensed and insured deck company that levels decks that have risen or sunk from Michigan winters. This is becoming very common from houses that have poor drainage issues. We can replace posts that support the deck or use the existing ones. It is hard to find contractors for deck leveling, since all of them want to build a new deck for you. Don’t let your exterior wooden deck in Michigan go unprotected.

Deck cleaning, maintenance and sealing in Michigan
Restoring wood decks with simply a pressure washer alone is damaging to your wood deck. However, the use of proper deck cleaners, strippers and wood brighteners will get you professional results and is the correct way to restore a deck. Cleaning decks is a 3 or 4 step process. First, the proper cleaning agent or stripper needs to be applied to the deck. Then it needs to stay wet and scrubbed to work into the wood. After the chemicals soften the stain then it is time to pressure wash the deck. Proper psi and distance must be used or it is very possible to damage the wood. Precaution must be taken on plants and vegetation around the deck. This process can be repeated several times. Sanding should be done once the deck is dry and before the brightener is used. Once desired results are obtained, it is time to apply the wood brightener to restore the deck back to original color. Now it is time to stain or seal the deck using professional oil based sealers, In Michigan we recommend TWP, Olympic stains. Oil-based coatings are used for wood decks because they penetrate the wood and straighten the fibers, they are easy to remove, and easier to apply over waterborne coatings. Do not use Behr from Home Depot, it is the hardest finish to remove, film forming and very costly to remove.
Composite deck & Trex deck cleaning or restoration in Michigan.
Even composite Trex decks need to be cleaned on a yearly basis to keep the warranties. We use the recommended composite cleaners for your particular type of deck. If your deck has been neglected for years and has mold, dirt and other build-up, maybe its time to have it professionally cleaned? Remember, that composite decks are low maintenance and that they still need to be cleaned, just not sealed if they are a capped composite like Trex Select, Enhance, or Transcend. Make sure you hire a composite certified contractor to install your deck. The picture on the above right was installed by a handyman who did not build the deck to code or manufacturer recommendations. If composite decks are not installed using certified or recommended fasteners they typically fail and can not be repaired. Most newer capped composite decks have a 25 year stain and fade warranty. The decks in the above photos are all generation 1 composite and are non-capped, very susceptible to mold and will eventually come apart. We have had success with Messmer’s composite deck finish for non-capped composite decks to slow this process down.
Stop hiring painters and non-experienced handymen restore your deck and let our 28 years of our deck maintenance expertise restore your backyard investment. We use top rated sealers like TWP, Sikkens-Proluxe and Olympic to seal your deck. In the off season (after August 1st) we are able to serve parts of Toledo, Ohio if pictures are emailed.
