You Have to See These Sealwize Deck Staining Projects!

Monday, July 6th, 2009

Have you been less than impressed with previous deck maintenance experiences?  Had to deal with scraggly contractors?  Paid to have a stain applied that only lasted a year?  Or worse yet, spent an entire weekend trying to do it yourself for the second year in a row? 


We empathize with you – keeping a deck in good condition can be a huge headache, leaving homeowners to throw their arms up in frustration.  We understand.  In fact, that is why Sealwize was founded in Kansas City!  For this very reason – “There has just got to be a better solution!” 


And there is!  It doesn’t have to be that way anymore.  Sealwize has created an entire new class of professionalism in the deck maintenance industry that has homeowners raving.  “These guys were amazing – they always showed up on time, coordinated with my schedule, moved the heavy grill off the deck, were careful to protect my landscaping, thoroughly stripped off the previous finish, spent an entire afternoon sanding nearly every inch of the deck in 100 degree weather, measured the pH levels like scientists, and carefully and methodically applied two coats by brush – it was very impressive!  Now I understand the Sealwize difference!” - Bray, Overland Park

When you hire Sealwize to take care of your deck, you can expect professional and courteous project coordinators, knowledgeable and experienced managers, trained and detailed technicians, rigorous deck restoration processes, scientifically engineered sealants, stains, and coatings that not only outlast and outperform traditional treatments but are also environmentally friendly, less stress and hassle, peace of mind, and a finished product that makes you proud!

Cherry Walnut NanoStain Deck Pictures

The Sealwize NanoStain colors can be mixed to find that color that is just right.  In these pictures, the Cherry and Walnut were mixed. 







Do you have a newer gray untreated deck?  If so, it should be sealed and protected.  Unprotected wood can age and deteriorate rapidly.  You would be surprised by the difference of just a few years.  Decks that are treated with a protective stain or sealed soon after construction typically have significantly fewer cracks and warping.  The quality of the lumber will make a big difference as well and therefore deck treatments cannot guarantee the prevention of cracks and warping.  However, sealing and staining can certainly reduce the probability.  If wood is not absorbing water, it is much less susceptible to deterioration. 


Sealwize offers a range of deck maintenance services with options for every type of deck and budget.  In addition to the durable long lasting NanoStain, permanent wood preservative deck  sealants, paint-like breathable deck coatings, exotic hardwood sealers, and inexpensive and affordable deck stains are all available. 


Sealwize is raising the bar in the exterior wood and concrete maintenance industry.  With technology proven through science to outlast and outperform and exceptional career professionals focused on outstanding service, Sealwize is quickly becoming known as the gold standard by which all others are measured.  But don’t take our word for it – ask one of our previous clients or call us for a complimentary consultation.  You will see the Sealwize difference right away!

Sealwize Cedar Tint Zr44 Deck Sealant Pictures

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

The Sealwize Zr44 water repelling wood preservative deck sealant can be applied in clear or with pigment tints.  The Cedar Tint is certainly the most popular.  It sure looks nice!

Zr44 is a great option for new (seasoned 30-90days) or near new decks in good condition.  This unique sealant crystalizes in the micro pores of the wood from the inside, which strengthens and increases the dimensional stability of the wood, while preserving it (almost like the wood is petrified).  And as a result, the wood is permanently less absorbent and less susceptible to deterioration.  Zr44 is best for homeowners seeking long-term protection as the primary goal.  However, since this is a water repelling wood preserving deck sealant, it is best for homeowners that prefer the natural look of wood because it does not have the same color retention performance characteristics of a deck stain.   Deck stains hold color longer but can offer less protection from the elements, especially if not reapplied frequently enough.  Sealwize recommends that decks treated with Zr44 either be professionally cleaned or refreshed/stained annually for best aesthetics.  The maintenance is relatively simple and cost is very reasonable.  Actually, the pictures in this post are of a deck originally sealed in 2008, and refreshed again in 2009.

If you have a deck in good condition and the protection of your wood is most important, then consider Zr44 deck sealing in Kansas City from Sealwize.  When the wood on your cedar deck is permanently protected and preserved, the only thing you have to worry about is cleaning or staining it at your discretion.  When the Zr44 is applied clear, the wood will naturally turn gray from dirt and sunburn.  This is normal and the maintenance process to clean annually is inexpensive and actually offers the lowest total cost of ownership when compared to any natural wood deck treatment process.  It is much cheaper to have your deck cleaned each year than to have traditional deck stains applied every year or two.

But Zr44 is not for everyone.  If you prefer a stained look that lasts longer, consider our NanoStain that comes with a 6year warranty.  This stuff is durable and looks fabulous.  Check out our NanoStain Pictures!
