The leaves will soon mark the arrival of fall. Is your outdoor structure ready for the coming winter?

Fall, much like spring, is a time when many homeowners are filling up their “Honey Do” lists. Along with packing away the remnants of summer, such as closing down the pool and pulling out the sweaters, fall is also a great time to schedule any exterior maintenance around your home. One of the best ways to ensure the longevity of your outdoor structure is to properly maintain it. For many outdoor structures this includes cleaning and sealing annually. In addition to being the Dayton and Cincinnati’s premier outdoor living space design and build firm, we  also offer cleaning and maintenance programs to keep your outdoor structures in tip-top shape. These include cleaning, brightening, and protecting wood decks, composite decks, and even hardscape surfaces such as paver patios, pool surrounds and driveways.

Honey Do list

Our clean and seal service enables you to mark this important chore off your “Honey Do” list!

Our clean and seal service will make your deck look almost new. After power washing and cleaning your deck you may choose from a wide array of colors to have it sealed with, or leave it natural. The sealer will protect the deck from the elements in the coming months ahead and be in great shape for the arrival of the outdoor living season.

  • Wooden Outdoor Structure Maintenance:

For wooden decks we use a three-step clean and seal process with high quality wood and deck stain products which are formulated with premium quality synthetic resins that resist mold and mildew growth and are environmentally friendly. Our clean and protect service is perfect for use on pressure treated wood decks and outdoor structures, cedar, mahogany, redwood or any vertical or horizontal exterior wood surface.

    We can keep your low maintenance composite deck looking and performing at it’s best.

We can also keep your low maintenance composite deck looking and performing at it’s best too. Keep in mind, that low maintenance doesn’t mean “no maintenance”, and even though synthetic decks require less maintenance than wooden decks, they still need a little TLC to keep them in tip-top shape! Our composite deck cleaning service uses a safe,oxygenated cleaner that’s highly effective at removing black stains caused by algae, dirt, grime and weathered graying from composite wood surfaces. Unlike chlorine bleach, our environmentally friendly deck cleaner is biodegradable and will not harm composite wood fibers, pets, grass or most plants.

  • Hardscape Maintenance:

Protect your new hardscape now in time for the cold winter ahead.

In addition to keeping your wood and composite surfaces at their best, we also offer a service for your hardscape outdoor living spaces too! Sealing a hardscape surface does a number of things, including adding a protective coating against staining and corrosion while enhancing the appearance of the natural tones of your installation. With new hardscape surfaces we don’t wait four to six weeks following installation like other companies for the structure to properly “cure” prior to being stained and sealed. This is because we use an innovative product that can be applied as soon as pavers are installed. This can be done, without worry of trapping efflorescence,( whitish powder that naturally rises to the surface of a hardscape following installation) because of the proprietary formulas present in the products we use. They are “breathable”, so efflorescence can travel through the sealer surface without becoming trapped.

After cleaning the surface thoroughly to remove any grease, dirt, paints, waxes and other surface contaminants prior to the application of stain or sealer. We then apply the proper concrete stain or hardscape sealer for your particular project. After the application of stain or sealer has dried completely, the surface will again need to be washed to remove any residue left over from the staining process. We do this using a neutral cleaner as to not damage the surface. Upkeep on existing hardscapes requires much the same process as with new installations. we recommend cleaning and sealing of your hardscape every three to seven years, depending on environmental conditions and traffic of the area.
