Frequently Asked Questions
When do I pick a color?
On the 1st day of the restoration process PWC will leave color samples for you to choose from. You can then call our office with your color selection.
The color applied seems darker than the color I selected, is this normal?
Yes, all colors will go on 2-3 shades darker than the samples. As the PWC 1000 finish works its way deeper into your wood it will then lighten up. It can take up to 90 days to reach final color.
How long do I need to stay off my deck after treatment?
We recommend that you stay off the deck for 24-48 Hours.
Can I use my deck between the cleaning and sealing?
You can, but we ask that you try to keep it as clean as possible and not return the furniture so it will dry.
Can you help remove the furniture and accessories on the deck?
We will remove the furniture upon arrival and place it in the yard. We ask that you replace the furniture after the project is complete and the required drying time is reached. If you need special help or are not able to return the furniture, please call our office and we will see if we can help.
What happens if it rains shortly after the deck is treated?
It can rain 5 minutes after the deck is treated with no adverse effects. If you notice any water spots, please give our office a call.
How do I get on your schedule?
Return your signed contract and deposit to us and you will be placed on our schedule in the order it was received. We work on a first come, first serve basis.
