Deck Medic's Professional 4-Step Solid Acrylic Stain Process

STEP ONE

STEP ONE

Included surfaces will be power washed using our Pro Deck Cleaner to remove dirt, pollutants, and any loose or flaking paint or stain.

STEP TWO

STEP TWO

All outdoor wood surfaces have mold/mildew that must be treated prior to staining. We will be using Deck Medic's Pro Mold Cleaner to attack any mold spores remaining in the grain of the wood after the initial cleaning. All surfaces will receive a final rinse to remove all cleaning products and prepare the surface for staining.

Dry Time Even solid acrylic (water based) stains need to be allowed to completely dry for a few days after power washing before we can return for the sanding and staining steps.

STEP THREE

STEP THREE

All areas of coating failure will be thoroughly scraped and sanded prior to top coating.

STEP FOUR

After all of the prep work has been completed we will apply a professional grade solid acrylic deck stain. The number of coats will depend on the prior condition and the color choice.

**Consult with your local Deck Medic representative whether your project requires 1 or 2 coats
