Fences and decks are often overlooked as candidates for washing/cleaning, but a thorough professional cleaning and staining can make a “night-and-day” difference in the looks of your fence or deck. Moisture and UV rays can “age” a fence or deck quickly, especially those exposed to the hot sun all day — giving them that faded “gray” look. Treatment with a quality stain will protect and preserve the wood, prolonging the life and the looks of the wood while giving you years of enjoyment. Older fences and decks especially look transformed after a thorough cleaning and staining from Quality Pressure Washing of Houston. New fences and decks can be stained and preserved, as well — ensuring the wood maintains its looks and preserving the integrity of the wood longer. All our stains are oil-based penetrating stains that preserve the wood, and all are top-quality wood and deck stains from Standard Paints, manufacturers of Wood Defender Fence & Deck Stains. They come in either transparent or semi-transparent formulations.
New fences are treated with the transparent stains, and are guaranteed for 2 years. Older fences — “gray” wood fences or fences that need to be cleaned — are treated with the semi-transparent stains, and are guaranteed for 3 years.
Cleaning aged or “gray” wood fences is a 2-step process.
- In the first step, a cleaning solution is sprayed on, using our soft wash machine. (This solution is allowed to dry — for up to several days).
- The second step is to apply the stain.
- I guess we could include a third step — where you now stand back and enjoy the look of your beautiful newly rejuvenated fence!
If your fence is new, it can be stained without cleaning. And, if you want to have a colored stain for your deck or fence (some people like using colored stains on their decks and fences) we have numerous stain colors from which to choose. We can help you select the right one for you — and all of them will improve the beauty and prolong the life of your fence or deck. Call us so we can discuss your particular application.
Step 1. Our cleaning process removes all the gray from an aged fence and prepares it for the stain.

Wood Defender™ Deck Stains Designed Specifically For Decks
Of the thousands of decks built on an annual basis, the vast majority go unprotected against the environment. Due to the difficulty associated with applying competitor’s stains, consumers unfortunately watch their investment gray over time and ultimately deteriorate. This problem has been solved with the Wood Defender line of stains. With the ease of application, cleanup, maintenance and longevity Wood Defender Deck Stain has become the contractor’s choice for deck care!
Wood Defender Deck Stains are designed specifically for application on decks. Most competitors’ products are universal, being used for both fences and decks. A universal product commonly lacks specific criteria for its intended purpose.
Wood Defender stains help to beautify outdoor decks, playground equipment, and contact type structures. The unique formula highlights and reveals all of the existing wood grain. The formula works to seal out the harsh effects of the environment. The average life of Wood Defender stains on a properly treated project is 2-3 years.
Wood Defender Transparent Deck Stains
Wood Defender Transparent Deck Stains are formulated for ease of application and re-coats while offering extended protection for decks. The deep penetrating oil formula utilizes a unique blend of oils, resins, bio protection and finely ground trans-oxide pigmentation. The combinations of ingredients are applied at 150 square foot per gallon to saturate the wood with protection, unlike competitive products that lay on the surface of the wood. This principle allows for lasting protection and easy re-coats.
