Default Pressure washing

As most novice deck refinishers I thought deck refinishing was about water pressure and I relied on products from Home Depot. Most decks in my area are pressure treated pine which is simply soft wood. Special care should be taken to clean and brighten the deck in preparation for stain.
Everything a contractor needs can be purchased from Sunbrite. http://sunbrite.stores.yahoo.net/

When getting started, it's a lot easier charging based on the amount of time you think the job will take.

Later as you get better at estimating, you can create a per sq ft charge.
