That would be shingles, siding, arbors, fences, decks, and the like. We typically differentiate between what it means to seal a deck vs. to stain a deck. We talk about sanding a deck vs. preparing a deck.
If you have questions regarding outdoor wood maintenance in and around your home, don’t hesitate to give us a call. One mistake is likely to cost you. If you get persuaded into using a cheap sealant or perhaps a solid stain, when in fact you were after a natural transparent stain, it could be a mistake that lasts a long, long time.

David: Why do you need to get your camera?
Me: Oh, just because…
