How Often Should You Stain Your Deck
Many staining applications will last an average of 3-4 years. Over time, due to age and weathering your deck may start to chip or peel. If you notice any of these issues, it is time for a restraining service. During this process, your old stain will need to be sanded away for a smooth application of your new stain. The great thing about choosing stain for your deck is that the natural grain of your wood can still show. This can add extra character to this exterior surface. There are also a few different types of stain and finishes that can be applied to your fence.
Transparent/Translucent: This is a popular stain choice for many homeowners and is the most natural looking option. It can be clear or tinted and is most often used on new decks.
Semi-transparent/Semi-solid: These products are typically a medium shade of stain and still allow for a bit of natural wood grain to show through. Sometimes these varieties will need a two coat application.
Solid Stain: A solid stain is very similar to paint. No wood grain will show through when you select a solid stain. Solid stains can also require two coats and they are very durable.
Deck Painting & Maintenance Services
Maintaining your outdoor surfaces can do a lot to boost your overall curb appeal. Here at CertaPro Painters® of East Central Wisconsin, we specialize in deck staining and painting services. We recommend investing in routine touch ups for your outdoor entertainment areas in order to protect these wood surfaces from wood rot and insect damage. Below are a few other ways your deck can be impacted.
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.
