Location: Mt. Tabor, NJ
Scope of Work: Mahogany Deck Refinishing
This pressure-treated deck is only a year old, but is well-loved. It connects to a covered porch and overlooks a lovely in-ground pool. The deck also receives a large amount of direct sunlight, which is very damaging to wood. In order to protect the deck, the homeowners requested that we stain the decking, treads, and railings.
For this project, we began by making a couple repairs to the railing caps. Some were either loose or had fallen off completely. Once the caps were back in placed and fully secured, we began sanding.
We palm sanded the decking, treads, and railings. This would ensure a smooth and even result. The deck was washed to remove the dust and allowed to dry completely.
Then we applied the reddish mahogany-colored stain. Again, this was applied by hand to ensure even coverage. Two coats of stain were applied for a rich color. The stain would also help protect the wood from the sun and moisture.
The new stain really warmed up the deck and gave the railings a pretty contrast to the white balusters.
The outdoor furniture was moved back out and this deck was ready for summer!
