Deck Refinishing and the Weather

Spring is knocking at the door, so I thought it would be a good chance to talk about the weather. Once we start a restoration project, weather is one of the most common concerns. Our customers want to make sure the job is done correctly in optimal conditions. We may live in a dry climate, but we still need to take precautions and make sure our hard work lives up to our high standards. The good news is, along with Denver’s beautiful climate, our local Boodge deck stains make managing the weather much easier.

Refinished deck with snow

Boodge is a very low VOC and environmentally friendly oil stain that repels rain, snow, and ice. While most deck stains seal wood from the outside, Boodge penetrates into the wood’s cells with a capillary action just like water. Boodge “moisturizes” your deck with oil, and blocks moisture from inside the wood rather than outside. This action also allows the deck to get wet immediately after application. Since the stain has penetrated into the wood and filled all the cells for water to enter, the rain can’t hurt the finish and it washes right off. It’s a deck refinishing miracle.

Restred deck repelling water

Another impressive Boodge attribute is that it’s not temperature dependent. Stains from Home Depot or your local Sherwin Williams have strict application guidelines usually stating the temperature must be above 50F and can’t fall below 50F within 48 hours of application. To apply Boodge it just needs to be dry and sunny, and it can freeze overnight.

Our superior weather tolerance allows us to finish jobs faster and more efficiently, and it allows us to work deeper into the season and complete jobs when other companies can’t. Most importantly, we know the job is getting done right with the best product. So if you’re reading this and it’s dry and sunny, contact us for a free quote, or maybe you just want to talk about the weather:)
