    Day Star Deck Services             Your Local Wolman Certified Contractor!

     

    If you have an existing deck or are thinking of building a deck or any other exterior wood structure than listen up!  Did you know that the damaging effects of the elements are immediately at work the moment your wood structure is built outdoors?  The graying you may be seeing is caused by sun damage, and those growth stains are caused by mildew or fungi growth, and don’t forget about the cracking and splintering that is moisture absorption.  All of the forces of weather are at work breaking down the deck or wood structure that you have invested possibly many dollars and hours in … why not protect it today?  Your deck or wood structure is an investment, Right?  Wood needs protection!   So you need to protect it and beautify it for years to come!  Thankfully, Day Star Deck Service has your solution to all of your outdoor wood care needs!!

     

    Day Star Deck Service has been certified by Wolman, the leader of wood preservation for over 80 years.  Many will recognize the name, Wolman from the process for pressure treating lumber known as Wolmanized lumber.  Day Star Deck Service uses all Wolman products in our application.  We are ready to be your wood care specialists today!

     

    Let’s get started!  The first step is to prepare your wood.  Prior to protecting or sealing your deck or wood structure, we first need to prepare the wood.  In essence we need to exfoliate the top layers of the wood, cleaning and removing dirt, mildew and those grayed fibers.  After we clean and prepare your deck or wood structure we can now focus on beautifying and protecting it.   This is where we apply our high performance preservative coating that penetrates the wood protecting it from sun damage, moisture damage and insect breakdown.  The final result is your deck or other wood structure is restored to it’s clean like-new appearance!

     

    Pricing. Our pricing is based on square footage. This includes rails, benches, steps, stairs, 4x2 posts, 4x4 posts, header boards, and main supporting beams.

     

    Average charges start at $1.00 per sq ft. for cleaning and staining. Rails $1.50 per sq ft (most rails avg 2.5-3.5 sq ft. ea.). Stripping existing paint or stain charges range from $2.25 and up. Note, stripping existing stain or paint off and outdoor structure can be very labor intensive therefore prices will be adjusted accordingly.

     

    Wood repair and materials will be factored in estimate as needed. If customers have extensive wood rot, a deck builder may be needed before Day Star Deck Service will be able to properly clean and preserve and existing deck or outdoor structure.

     

    Customer should be prepared to move all items off deck prior to us arriving to clean deck. Plants will be covered by our technicians but some very brittle plants may experience damage and may need replacing by customer. Watering of plants will be a constant throughout cleaning process as to insure all cleaning products are washed off plants. Day Star Deck Service uses all environmentally friendly products, as well as low pressure cleaning system to safely remove dirt. Grills should be removed off decks before cleaning is started and should not be rolled across wet untreated wood as they may create grooves in wood.

     

    Contractor's Corner F.Y.I. (gold)

     

    Can my deck be cleaned and stained in one day?

    Answer: Our products allow for cleaning and coating in one day but this is not the norm. Smaller decks, those 500 sq ft or less are best candidates. The wood surface needs only to be 80% dry for us to begin coating, however weather and other factors can put a damper on cleaning and coating in one day. Customer need to remember what we do is wood care, that means rushing the job and cutting corners is not how we perform quality work. Day Star Deck Service will take the appropriate time needed to make sure our customers deck or other outdoor structure is properly cleaned and preserved, insuring years of enjoyment to come.

     

    Does my deck need to be cleaned and sealed even though it is all ready green treated?

    Answer: Yes, green treated lumber or also known as pressure treated lumber was developed by our partner Wolman to protect against insect damage, however the wood still needs protection against sun damage and moisture damage.

     

    Can I clean my deck without using a proper cleaner and expect quality results?

    Answer: This is a big misnomer, especially amongst those who think cleaning a deck only requires a pressure washer and a sunny day. To properly remove dirt, mildew and grayed fibers it is essential that you use a quality cleaner or deck and fence brightener. By using only a pressure washer you will not be able to penetrate the unique molecular structure of wood, and your sealant or stain will likely wear off in a few months. To avoid this mishap, rely on us, your local wood care specialists!

     

    I am thinking of building a composite deck.is it really maintenance free as it was advertised to me?

    Answer: If you are thinking of building a deck, consider building with a good wood such as cedar or a good pine or even pressure treated lumber. Composite decks are sold to be maintenance free, however if you really examine these products they are made of wood and plastic pressed together, and they do need to be cleaned on regular basis. They are subject to UV damage and water damage creating mold or mildew. There is also a problem with breath ability and drainage. Wolman is looking to develop new sealants to protect composite decking, we are more than willing to clean your composite deck for you. In our expert opinion, a good wood deck properly cleaned sealed and maintained by us, your Wolman contractor is the best way to go!

     

    Should I believe companies claims who offer to clean and stain my deck with the warranty of 10 –15 years?

    Answer: When considering cleaning and staining your deck, hire a company who understands wood care and offers regular wood maintenance. Some companies are offering inflated warranties. Make sure you're simply not buying empty warranties, rather choose wood care specialist like Day Star who understands the importance of professional regular maintenance.

     

    How often do I need to pressure clean and stain my deck?

    Answer: Decks need to be maintained. We recommend every 3-4 years after the pressure cleaning and staining to ensure the longevity of your deck or fence. Some patios can be cleaned on a yearly basis.

     

    Why do I need to clean my deck?

    Answer: Deck maintanace is essential to maintaining the lifespan of your deck. By cleaning and keeping it maintained you could expect to enjoy the use of your deck as well as the increased value it brings to your property for many years. The downside to not cleaning your deck is that the wood will begin to break down more quickly and may potentially negatively affect your property value.

    Construction Clean Up

    **Scroll down for more links

     

    Day Star Window Cleaning’s Construction Clean-up Pricelist.


    If you are a builder contractor or a homeowner and you have windows that need a quality first cleaning… you have come to the right place!

     

    DSW offers everything from a deluxe cleaning interior/exterior, screens, vacuuming sills/tracks, to our standard exterior only construction clean-up.

     

    Contractor’s and/or homeowners considering having their properties windows cleaned for the very first time need to take into account a few very important pieces of information. 

     

    First, are your windows tempered glass?  Tempered glass is identified by a stamp called “permanent tempering stamp”.   This stamp is located on each piece of tempered glass.  The term tempered glass means that it is glass subject to heat treatment, followed by rapid cooling; this produces a more comprehensive surface layer.


    Here at Day Star Window Cleaning we take all precautions to assure a quality result when cleaning glass for the first time.

     

    Many times this means first identifying if glass is tempered or not and then using products such as oil flow which are very safe and effective in removing paint and stickers.


    Some of the other factors New Construction clean-up customers should consider are, the size of the windows needing to be cleaned, how dirty are the windows and do they have concrete splatter?  Also, are you hiring a cleaning crew that will pre-clean the windows and sills of dust and dirt or are you relying on DSW to do the interior vacuuming?

     

    DSW refers to windows as plates.

     

    Remember when figuring, Day Star counts 1 plate and 1 piece of glass, so you will need to count each piece of glass to get an accurate count!

     

    Here are the prices for New Construction or First time window cleaning!
