Woodrich Oil Stains Hit the Mark

We are general contractors, with experience in all phases of construction. Including heavy equipment, which for this application, a new wood plank equipment trailer treatment. Several coats when

If you’re like me, you’ve been frustrated with “modern” deck finishing products that don’t last, and require stripping and refinishing on a yearly basis. In the Pacific Northwest, decks are wet at least nine months of the year. Algae, mold, mildew, rotting leaves, torrential rain and even snow create a tough environment for a deck.
