Welcome to your project blog for the upcoming deck staining and painting project at Winchester in Blaine. 

We’ll be getting started with pressure washing of the decks and entry stairs/landings on Wednesday, June 24th. We kindly request that you please remove all personal items from your deck for the pressure washing and staining to allow for safe and unobstructed access. 

Once the substrates have had time to dry, the crew will return to begin staining the deck floors and we are projecting this to be on Monday, June 29th. Please note that the weather will impact our finishing schedule. 

You can check project progress, weather delays, and schedule  changes here on the blog as we’ll update it frequently. 

Our plan is to complete all of the deck staining the week of 6/29 before the holiday weekend so you may return items to your deck and enjoy your patios! 

We will then coming to paint the deck skirts, posts, and other areas after the deck floors are completed. 

We understand having items off of your decks for some time is inconvenient and we will do our best to complete the project promptly so you may return your items to your deck. 

Thank you so much for having us and we’re looking forward to getting started on Wednesday!
