Get the ‘good as new’ look for your outdoor timber

We believe that your outdoor space should feel just as homely as your interiors. But decking and fencing can quickly look old and worn. Moisture, mildew and UV rays all take their toll on your outdoor timber – leaving it looking old and neglected. But the good news is that we can help transform your decking and fencing and even help you look after it long-term. We’ll repair, restore, stain or paint your timber and have it looking as good as new. And then we can provide periodic maintenance visits to keep it looking tip top for years to come.

Restore and Maintain Your Timber Decks & Fences

We use the very latest professional products to extract years of dirt, grime, mould, dead wood fibres and contaminants from the grain and surface of your decking. All our specialists are professionally trained and certified so you can trust that your surfaces will be safely and effectively cleaned and restored to their original beauty.

Our stains and paints are made to the highest specifications. Unlike many commercially available DIY stain products, ours are made from a linseed oil base for a superior finish and better protection. They’re also all made specially for us, manufactured here in New Zealand and designed for Aotearoa’s unique climate and weather conditions.

Restore and Maintain your Garden Furniture

Love entertaining? Then you’ll know that having comfy and clean outdoor furniture is a must. Garden furniture comes in a range of hard woods such as kwila or teak and some softwoods like pine. And although they all look great, they also need regular maintenance to stop rotting, mould and lichen growth and to protect against the harmful effects of the sun. And that’s where we come in.

Deck and Fence Repair and Rebuild

If your deck or fence is broken or missing boards, palings or rails, we can help too. Whether they need some minor surgery or a major re-build, your local Deck&FencePro specialist is ready to replace, repair and return your deck or fence to their prime. Some of our franchisees can even build brand new decks or we can always put you in touch with trusted builders that can do this work with us.

We’ve recently partnered with Biform (www.biform.co.nz) to offer composite decking as an alternative to timber. This product is made from fully recycled materials (30% plastic, 70% waste timber fibre) and is the only composite decking which has BRANZ approval. With a 25-year warranty it requires no maintenance other than a light clean once in a while.

Cedar Garage Doors

Timber garage doors look fantastic when new but our harsh sunshine and UV rays soon deteriorate the surface and quickly become faded and ugly looking if you don’t maintain them regularly. The original factory varnish breaks down and the cedar beneath turns black as mould takes hold.

Cedar is a very soft timber and can be damaged easily if care is not taken.

Using specialist cleaning products followed by a light sand, we are able to remove the old coatings and resurface the timber. We then recommend using a high quality penetrating oil stain to protect the timber.

FAQ

  • Should I use oil or water-based stain on my deck?

    Water based stain is effectively very thin acrylic paint, so thin you can see though it. The problem with it is that it clogs up the pores of the timber making it extremely difficult to maintain because the old residue is virtually impossible to remove.
    We use good quality oil based stain that nourishes the timber and can be recoated time and time again.

  • Why does my kwila deck have splinters?

    Hardwoods such as kwila come from tropical climates that have a lot of moisture in the air. New Zealand’s harsh climate and intense sun quickly dries out the timber causing it to splinter. There is very little that can be done to remedy this, and kwila is becoming less popular as a decking timber.

  • Do you use a waterblaster to pre-clean the timber?

    We use a specialist eco-friendly solution to loosen dirt, contaminants, and dead timber cells followed by a controlled pressure wash to sluice this residue away. Our team are very skilled at this process. Using a waterblaster alone can damage the surface of the timber because the water jet needs to be very close to the timber to have any effect.

  • How do I maintain my restored deck, fence, or furniture?

    Stains generally require a top up coat every 12-18 months to replenish the nourishing oils and UV blockers. We can arrange an on-going maintenance schedule with you following the restoration process that will include a light clean followed by a recoat of stain. In between scheduled maintenance, a mild detergent is all that is needed to remove any bird droppings or spills, and a spray with a moss and lichen inhibitor during winter can also help. It is important to not use harsh cleaning agents than may remove the oils contained in the stain.
    Painted surfaces generally last longer than stained ones but are more susceptible to abrasion.
