Wood Decks and Furniture
Is your deck or deck furniture bleached out? When repairing wood decks and furniture, Mark’s crew will first clean them and then diagnose any problems, looking for wood rot and other issues affecting the integrity of your deck or furniture. Any structural problems will be fixed. Decks are exposed to regular use and abuse from direct sun and rain. Unprotected wood will soak up moisture, leading to serious damage, such as swelling, shrinking, warping, and cracking. To avoid having your deck crack and rot, it should be treated periodically, perhaps even once a year. With Mark’s team, wood will be cleaned to remove dirt, fungus, stains, mildew, or moss and then stripped of any unwanted finishes. Afterward they protect it with a water-repellent finish to stop moisture from penetrating the wood surface.
Water Damage and Dry Rot Repair
Dry rot, caused by excess moisture, is a fungus that leaves wood brittle and soft. If it isn’t detected and removed immediately, it can spread to the adjoining wood and cause catastrophic damage to your home. Mark and his team will thoroughly inspect your structure for water damage or dry rot and remove the affected area. They’ll also determine the source of the problem, so it doesn’t happen again. They will seal your wood to keep additional moisture out and stop dry rot from reoccurring.
Wallpaper and Popcorn Ceiling Removal
Mark and his crew have many years of experience removing popcorn/textured ceilings and wallpaper covered with many layers of paint. Both of these can be messy jobs, and the key to success is proper preparation. Mark and his crew will evaluate your specific situation to determine the best approach for removing the unwanted material.
Mark’s team specializes in all types of carpentry associated with home repair, maintenance, and remodeling. They will determine and clearly identify proper materials and material quantities for new and existing projects. They can also construct, install, and repair structures and fixtures of wood, plywood, and wallboard.
