After several months spent contemplating how I was going to restore my deck to its original state and after several failed attempts, I finally made a call to Jim at Restore-a-Deck. Jim kept me informed throughout the entire process, and all work was completed within the advised time frame.

Thanks Jim for a fantastic job, the deck never looked better!

Seven months ago I had my house pressure cleaned by a cleaning company who ruined my deck not once but twice.

I contacted several deck people and when Jim from Restore-A-Deck came he asked if he could do a small trial on the deck and I agreed. As a result I asked for a quote for the whole deck to be restored, this I accepted and I am extremely pleased to say that my deck has now been fully restored and I am thrilled to bits and couldn’t be more pleased with it.

Jim spends a lot of time preparing the wood and this certainly pays off for a very good result. He is very conscientious about everything and I will certainly recommend Restore-A-Deck to anyone.

Due to the bad product selection to paint our deck, within 12 months we had to reseal it. First it had to be stripped back to bare timber and with the paint that was used, no one would attempt to take on the job that is until I saw an advertisement for Restore-A-Deck.

After a lot of research, Jim Johnson decided to tackle it. I was so impressed with Jim’s professionalism and work ethic that I have no hesitation in recommending him to restore your deck. He really is Mr Restore-A-Deck.

Jim, you have transformed our deck from a grey and depressing site to a live piece of beautiful timber. We did not believe it could be fully transformed and your process, dedication and passion saw you work in wet days and dray days to create what you believed timber should be like for people to enjoy. You obviously have a love of timber and a desire to see it retain as much as is possible of its natural offering. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity of reliving our deck as it was and allowing us to proudly share it with family and friends. I believe the acrylic finish is environmentally attractive and beneficial over oils.

Jim Johnson came to our home to restore our deck. He was extremely helpful and hardworking and nothing was too much trouble for him. When one method did not work he tried another way until he was satisfied with the result. He treated our deck like his own and it shows in his workmanship. We would have no hesitation in recommending Jim to anyone that needs their deck repaired. Jim was honest and reliable and for the work that he did the price was very reasonable. Anyone that would like to view our deck is welcome to inspect.

Kerry & I are absolutely delighted with the final finish of our deck & feel that the deck looks like it was just installed as new, adding value to our home. When we first went thru the decisions on how to manage this project having to deal with pinewood & coats of painting that should not have been used except to make it look new when we purchased the property a year ago & since has faded & deteriated.

After frustrations of different opinions we were still not satisfied with the proposals so we contacted the real estate that we purchased our home from & you were highly recommended by Danny Redman whom we had respect for.

Having years of experience in the service industry your introduction immediately gave me this sense of confidence of professionalism to understand the customers problem & reassuring with backup knowledge & research on how to deal with the project.

Above all is your genuine approach with honesty & taking the time with the customer explaining the stages of the project & obstacles that may encounter during process which impressed us to use your services. We also compliment you on the cleanliness & tradesman's working manner to beof the highest standards.

Kerry I have no hesitation in recommending you to any person wishing to restore a deck.

I first used Restore-A-Deck services on my pool deck in April 2006 and found them to be cost effective service that protects my 100 sq/m ($30,000) decking investment.

My pool deck at the time was well weathered since its construction six months previously. The colour of the wood at the time was a dirty silver grey and not very appealing. Hoping to restore the wood to its original nature look myself, I hunted for a product and/or a service that could satisfy my interests. I found the various products available on the marked overwhelming to say the least and no one I spoke to seemed to give me the confident I needed to make a decision on what I should purchase or how I should go about restoring my deck myself. I mostly heard of stories of how harsh and unforgiving the Queensland sun was on outdoor oil based wooden deck finishes. Eg. peeling and blistering results seemed to be most common.

Fortunately, I eventually came across Jims company Restore-A-Deck. I viewed the various samples they had and discussed the results of their experience. After this new knowledge, I decided not to try and do the restoring job myself because I didn’t have the proper equipment or the needed experience required to do the job properly. With confidence I decided to employ Restore-A-Deck to dot he complete restoring job for me.

The work that I eventually had done involved, a high-pressure industrial cleaning process and 3 coats of an acrylic based stain and sealer called Spa ‘n’ Deck.

The results were fantastic and I’m extremely happy with the professional service they provided. Jim the owner of Restore-A-Deck has a passion for quality wood finished that was simular to mine and now that that it has been restored my deck looks the way I envisioned. I enjoy promoting Restore-A-Deck services when visitors admire my pool decking.

Thanks for the great service your company provided.

Just a quick note to tell you how pleased we are with our timber decking after your “Restore-A- Deck renovation”.

As business people we found it delightful to have a tradesperson that is so very passionate about their work and one that arrived on time, left no mess plus gave us a deck that now looks fantastic.

Since building our house a little over a year ago, we have had to recoat the deck about four times, leaving it a dirty dark colour. Your cleaning process and the product you applied is durable and brings out the natural timber grains. In fact it has returned the deck to its original condition.

I would not hesitate to recommend your or your product and would be happy for you to use our decking to show your customers the finished product.
