With over 20 years of experience, Cornerstone Hydrowash specializes in deck staining and wood restoration. We prioritize proper deck cleaning, beginning each project with meticulous prep work.

Our approach involves more than just spraying; all stains are meticulously brushed and pressed into the wood grain for superior weather resistance and appearance. We maintain close partnerships with major paint/stain manufacturers to ensure the quality of the products we apply is backed by their standards.

What sets us apart from other companies?

Unlike most painting companies, we possess state-of-the-art power washing equipment that cleans decks swiftly and thoroughly. We pride ourselves on leaving no noticeable marks in the wood or compromising its integrity. Moreover, we utilize a variety of chemicals designed to remove tough stains, enhance the wood's natural appearance, neutralize pH levels, all while opening the pores of the wood to prepare it for staining. Our team members are experienced, meticulous, and deeply committed to delivering high-quality work.

Frequently asked Questions

Do you spray and walk away?

No, in most cases, we apply stains using a sprayer to reach difficult spots between boards, followed by hand brushing into the grain of the wood.

What’s the difference between applying 1 coat versus 2 coats of stain?

When using transparent oil-based stains, we apply enough stain for the wood to become saturated without rejecting the stain. For solid latex-based stains, a second coat offers better protection against weather and foot traffic and provides a smoother appearance.

Can you strip existing deck stains off my deck?

Absolutely, we can remove transparent and semi-transparent stains, restoring the wood to its natural color and allowing for a different stain choice.

How long does the deck staining process take?

Depending on weather conditions, it typically takes three days: one for washing and prepping, another for the deck to dry, and a final day for staining the deck.

What types of stain do you use?

We offer a variety of stains from major retailers, providing pamphlets and assistance to help you choose the best stain for your deck.

How long do I have to wait before I walk on my deck?

While our deck stains dry fully within 20 minutes of application, they require 48 hours to cure completely.
