This first picture is what happens when a builder gets over excited and starts spot sanding and pressure washing a hardwood ipe deck.



After a complete floor sanding, cleaning, ph balance and stain.

Tim, the last project I just posted.. those customers are ready for a recoat. Its been almost two years for that one. In direct sun this stuff lasts about a year. Everything we had used previously (Cabots ATO, Messmers, Penofin) lasted between 4-8 months on ipe.

Wow, that's some nice stuff Ken. You are true Yoda of your profession.

Talked to a friend last night, she had her house build just over a year ago, and has 2 decks with the plain pressure treated planks. She doesn't like the look of it and has a house full of kids, 5 to be exact. What would be the best way to refinish these decks without replacing them? Reducing any splintering is important and she lives in NC not sure how climate would play a part also.

Nice jobs Ken. What did you use? I use Cabot ATO now, and it just doesn't hold up in my climate.

Pete,
Thank you for the kind words. If she is a DIY'er you could direct her towards my Restore-A-Deck website. All the information she would need is there as well as articles on technique, products and a chat forum where she can ask questions.

Eric, product is called WoodZotic. In all of our testing it has outlasted the ATO by 200%

Thanks Ken, it looks like great stuff. Is it available locally, or just from the website?

Default Deck Cleaning and Staining Ipe

Ken,

That Ipe deck is beautiful. We don't have the privilege of doing exotics around here, finding a cedar deck is even a rarity. Mostly greyed out pressure treated.

Nice work!

That's actually three different jobs. For the ipe ones we travel a bit farther (for obvious reasons) These were in/around Blue Bell, Malvern and Conschy.

I have an in-house brand that is manufactured under the name WoodZotic™. It outlasts just about everything out there that I have tested. Its a great (but expensive) formulation.

If the prices on your website are accurate, the extra expense would be well worth it if it lasts as long as you say. I'm paying about $32 per gallon for Cabot ATO, so for an extra $12 per gallon, it's only an extra $50 for an average deck.
