Frequently Asked Questions - Deck Staining, Wood Care & Treatment:

Why choose Bergen Wash & Seal?

We’re a local, family-owned business. We have the knowledge and experience to get the job done right and to your complete satisfaction!

How long will the staining process take?

While we never cut corners or accept less than the highest standard, we do our best to work with our clients to ensure their timetable is honored. Weather is often the only barrier that can come between us and our timeline.

Can I have my deck washed and not stained?

Sure, but it is best if you stain wood and seal it right after it’s washed.

Can't I just do it myself? Why isn't staining a DIY project?

You could, but should you? Most homeowners don’t have the necessary tools,  experience, complementary skill sets, or specialized knowledge to do the job right. All too often, to cut costs, homeowners will do the work themselves and damage the wood.

What causes wood discoloration?

Time, air pollutants, sunlight, moisture, and heat all cause damage and discoloration to wood over time. That’s why it’s so important to perform routine maintenance.  

What about cracks in the wood?

 When we assess the deck to begin the process, we look for any cracks and decide if the wood needs to be replaced or repaired. If the damage isn’t too severe, we can just fill and smooth them to make them look better and hold up longer.

What about different types of wood?

We deal with all different wood types, even exotic woods, and take the wood type and unique features into account when assessing what action to take and what a deck needs.

Do I have to pay for a consultation?

No! We want everyone to feel free to call us to ask questions and get information. Even if you aren’t sure whether you want to restore or refinish your deck, you should have easy access to reliable information from an industry professional.

That’s why we offer free consultations and quotes and welcome anyone, from window shoppers to committed renovators, to contact us to discuss their project.

Our team will be happy to help you with your Deck Repair, Replacement, or Revitalization & Restoration project.
