Frequently Asked Questions

How much will it cost to refinish my deck?

This depends mostly on the square footage of the deck, if the deck is elevated, if there is a staircase, or if there are any parts that need to be replaced. It is really difficult to give a flat rate quote for any job as there are no two decks alike. However, City Wide Fence offers free estimates within a week but usually within 72 hours.

Are you locally owned and operated?

Yes, City Wide Fence has been in business in the Dayton and Cincinnati areas for over 51 years! We are often in the community by donating back to local charities such as Freestore Foodbank, Gospel Mission, Mathew Ministries, Louie's Legacy, SISCA, Humane Society, and various local children sports teams.

My deck was sealed with a solid paint or stain and it is peeling what should I do?

There are various options available such as power washing, sanding, staining. Contrary to popular belief, you cannot strip a solid stain. It would be less expensive to replace the boards. Give City Wide Fence a call today to discuss your situation.

How long do I have to stay off my deck after it is refinished?

Typically for a clean and sealing, 48 hours. For a solid stain, 72 hours. This includes moving furniture and any pottery back onto the deck.

Do you spray or roll the stain on?

City Wide Fence uses the latest technology to spray and back-roll to ensure the greatest amount of coverage to the wood. City Wide Fence uses tarps and plastic to avoid getting any chemicals on plants, vegetation, and other materials.

Is there a permanent deck stain, so that I never have to refinish my deck again?

There have been several companies in the Tri-State area which claim to offer a permanent staining solution. This is simply not true. All stains will eventually weather away and need to be resealed. With proper care and upkeep, a deck can be kept looking like new for decades.

Should I just switch to composite decking and never worry about refinishing again?

Composite decking is not a maintenance free solution as it requires to be cleaned annually due to algae growth. However, it is a beautiful product that requires much less maintenance than traditional treated lumber.
