patriot's levels of surface preparation

Garage Gate Water Cleaning. Garage Walls

LEVEL 1

This level entails pressure washing only.  Patriot uses 2500 psi which is the equivalent of a soft wash - enought to clean surfaces but not enough to damage surfaces. 

This level typically does not entail further preparing or coating of surfaces.  This is a stand-alone service.

LEVEL 4 RESTORATION

Restoration is defined as the removal of all coats of paint or stain from a surface by mechanical or chemical means in order to bring all surfaces down to the bare wood before recoating with a minimum of two coats. 

Level 4 is rarely chosen due to the added cost which could exceed 90% of the original quote.
