This was a new(ish) east-facing backyard deck up near UCSC. This redwood deck was built in the late summer 2015. This client happened to be an accomplished wood worker himself, and knew the importance of letting brand new redwood boards age in place. He and his wife happened to wait a couple years, which certainly was not too long given the fact that the deck only gets morning sun til about 2pm.
Naturally, the deck had opened up, and oxidized grey. Obviously it cleaned up very nicely. The clients wanted a dark, richer tone to match the modern look of their home. We used a Butternut Tone blend from Extreme by Defy. We washed and stained some of their Ipe’ furniture as well.
Another quality custom deck project in Santa Cruz County.
