Nowadays everything is extreme… extreme sports, extreme weight loss, and if you can believe it, even extreme pizza!
Not to be outdone, the exterior house painting professionals at Kevin Palmer Painting recently undertook an extreme deck refinishing and restoration project.
The deck we were contracted to restore was actually a stunning wooden bridge spanning a flowing brook. Refinishing and preserving the wood decking and railings presented a number of issues which our exterior painters had to address.
The bridge was built prior to 1978 which presented concerns about lead paint. Kevin Palmer Painting is a Lead-Safe Certified painting contractor with long-term employees who are Lead-Safe Certified Renovators. Our painters are trained and understand the necessity of completing all work, including power washing and preparatory work in an appropriate manner.
Power washing was the first order of the day. The fact that this pressure washing had to be done on a wood deck suspended over water required experience, expertise, and more than a little bit of ingenuity. Our power washing experts used a wash system that thoroughly cleaned the wood surfaces of all mold and mildew all the while protecting the ducks, fish, and brook below. A containment hammock was suspended above the water and beneath the bridge to collect all chippings, residue, and debris.
Next came the preparatory work. All scrapings were safely collected, contained, and ultimately disposed of properly. The house painters of Kevin Palmer Painting have always taken great pride in giving our customers a properly prepared surface that creates the foundation for a beautiful long-lasting finish.
As part of the preparation work, the painters used their experience and expertise to remove stains and discolorations. Rust from nail heads was removed and the rusting nail heads were treated with a rust inhibitive coating. Wood stampings and markings were removed as part of the painting preparation process.
Once the bridge was power washed and preparatory work was complete, a protective deck coating was applied. The painters had done such a nice job power washing and preparing the deck floor and railings that the homeowner wanted to preserve the natural look with the best wood preservative available.
Using our experience with different manufacture’s products, Kevin Palmer Painting chose and applied a clear wood finish that protected the wood and enhanced its character and beauty. The finish results were spectacular!
