Your deck is a major part of your home. It’s where you spend warm summer evenings relaxing with your family and weekends sharing a barbeque with your friends and neighbors. You want the material of your deck to last as long as possible and to weather summer storms as well as winter elements. The best way to protect your deck is to have it stained on a regular basis. The deck staining professionals at CertaPro Painters® have helped countless homeowners keep their decks weather-resistant and visually appealing.
Depending on your needs, professional staining services for decks may include:
To prepare your surface, we will first remove any dirt, gravel, and chipped paint.
To ensure the surface is ready for stain or paint, we will thoroughly power wash.
If necessary, we will sand any areas that are raised or lose to create a smooth surface.
Paint or Stain
The final step is to apply premium paint or stain to your surface.
Deck Staining Services
Staining your deck not only highlights the wood grain and improves its overall appearance, but it will also increase its lifespan by preventing rot and insect infestation. Deck staining will also prevent the wood from absorbing moisture, which can freeze causing costly damage.
When it comes to choosing deck stain colors, there are plenty of options, from natural-looking clear wood stains to bold solid colors. While you’re looking for one to suit your project, you should consider that a clear stain will bring out the wood grain, while a solid color will reveal very little of the wood’s natural color.
Many homeowners leave their pressure-treated wood as is because they think that you can not apply stain to treatment. This is not the case. There are many different shades of stain that can complement the look of treated wood. You can stain all decks whether they are pressure treated or they have already been stained.
When To Re-Stain Your Deck
Homeowners should re-stain their decks periodically. The lifespan of your deck stain will depend on several different factors including:
- The elements: direct sunlight is the biggest threat to your deck because it can cause the stain to dry out and weather much faster. Rain can also cause damage, especially if your deck is not treated. The wood can soak up the water and when the temperature cools it can freeze, causing cracks. With each season cycle, your deck can become a little weaker.
- Foot traffic: Once you have applied a good deck stain, typical use of your deck will not begin to show signs of wear for several months. Gradually, the stain will begin to wear as the small particles of dirt beneath people’s shoes rub on the deck’s surface like sandpaper.
When is it time to reapply deck stain?
Your deck stain’s full protection will only last for three or four years, but to prolong its effect, you can apply another coat after two years. However, it is better for your deck not to apply too many coats of stain. After four years, you should remove the old stain and apply two fresh coats. This will strengthen and revitalize the wood.

Common Questions About Deck Staining Projects
How often should I paint or stain my deck?
Deck staining should be done once every two to three years, depending on the environmental elements the deck is exposed to. Staining is important to maintaining the life of your deck. Stain wears off over time allowing water to make contact with the wood and cause mold or rotting to occur.
Can CertaPro Painters® replace broken or rotted sections of wood on a deck?
If the damage is non-structural, many of our independently owned and operated CertaPro Painters® franchises can make light carpentry repairs as needed.
Do I need to be home while the painters are working on my deck?
No, it is not required that you be home while the crew is working. It is ideal to have someone there for the start of the project.
What are the trending stain colors for decks?
Popular stain colors include lighter colors like cedar and oak and shades of red like redwood and mahogany-colored stains.
Do I need to sand my deck prior to painting or staining?
Sanding is not a requirement for staining a deck. The sanding process enhances the feel of the deck and can improve the appearance, but sanding is not always required. When preparing your estimate, your local painting team will discuss the best preparation techniques they can do based on the needs of your unique project.
