Harry is a friendly and professional tradesman that knows his specialty.

Decking Clean & Recoating


Justin did a great job. He communicated well and arrived on time. Hard working and took a lot of care. He was much better when he used the spray gun than when using the applicator, so make sure you get the right product. The finished deck was just what we wanted.

Deck Sanding


Couldn’t recommend Mario higher. Exceptional worker and highly personable. His craftsmanship is flawless.

Sand & oil decks


Extremely helpful, friendly and gets the job done with a minimum of fuss. Great communication leading up to the job. No hesitation recommending Mario. I’ll definitely engage his services again.

Oil front and back deck


Overall i am satisfied with the job. I was happy with the quality of the sanding, the machines were professional grade and successfully sanded the timber to bare. Unfortunately the boards were left a few days as bare due to weather which compromised the finished product with some stains appearing from elements. I noticed the high pressure washer didn't work when they returned to complete the job so they used my hose instead, which isn't going to clean as well. Communication while working could be improved, on the final day the boss left the job without saying anything. I would expect to look over the work together and make sure i was happy. When i inspected the next day there were drips which they had to come back and fix, upon sanding the drips one coat was applied, i asked if he was doing a second coat and he said no it should be fine and i insisted i wanted the second coat as quoted. They have great skills, just need to take a little more attention to detail. and follow through.

What do deck painting services include?

Whether you're planning to have a deck constructed or your current deck's already wearing out, deck painters near you can bring it to life! Your deck is what people see from the outside, so why not make a great first impression and make it look presentable? Here are some things your painter can do to transform your deck:

Cleaning and fixing your deck

Preparing your deck before painting can help you get outstanding results. The process involves fixing screw heads and popped nails, repairing damaged boards, filling in cracks, and power washing its existing stains and finish. All these steps are necessary for proper paint adhesion, especially if you don't want to see a beautifully-painted deck with visible imperfections. You can also get someone to clean your deck to ensure that it’s all set for a paint job.

Painting your deck

Once your deck is clean and dry, your painter starts staining and painting your deck! It is advisable to do this at the time of the day when your deck is in the shade because painting under direct sunlight dries paint too quickly, making it appear patchy or uneven. They can first apply 1-2 coats of exterior stain to prepare your deck for the paint. After that, they start to paint it from top to bottom, including the railings and spindles. For best results, they can apply up to three coats of paint.

Sealing and finishing your deck

You don't want a patchy deck painting job, so it's best to let your painter touch up some areas to make the paint look uniform and even. They can seal your deck using a high-grade oil-based finish. They can also top railings and spindles with high-quality acrylic paint. Sealing your newly-painted deck creates a protective layer against water infiltration, fungal growth, and wood rot—all of which can shorten your deck's lifespan. 

Once these are all done, you can have plants delivered to you so you can decorate your deck with lush foliage and flowers. Why not top it off with outdoor furniture like an elegant chair where you can sit and relax? You can even make it more inviting by having a plunge pool installed! When it comes to making your deck as gorgeous as it can be, the possibilities are limitless!
