Exterior Wood Staining Services Provided by CertaPro Painters® of Harrisburg, PA
Your home’s footprint is enhanced with outdoor living spaces. Your deck plays host to summer evening parties and afternoon barbecues. Keeping your deck in good condition not only makes it more appealing, it can also protect the wood for longer. You will be able to stave off the cost of replacement for additional seasons by keeping the paint or stain in good condition. The deck staining professionals at CertaPro Painters® have helped countless homeowners keep their decks weather-resistant and visually appealing.
These facts are true of any outdoor wooden surface, like decks, fences, patios, arbors or other wood. The weather can quickly deteriorate the wood without proper care. Leaving wood exposed to the elements can be a costly home maintenance bill. Bringing in a painting contractor like those from CertaPro Painters will help you create a beautiful outdoor oasis.
The CertaPro Painters® of Harrisburg, PA residential painting crews have years of experience sealing and staining decks to protect them from all types of weather conditions. Depending on your project, our professional surface prep and deck staining process may include:
Chipped paint, dirt and gravel must be removed to a smooth surface.
Power washing allows our crew to remove dirt and grime. This allows the stain or paint a good tooth to adhere to.
Sometimes, we need to sand areas to allow for good adhesion. This could be throughout the project or a spot treatment.
Paint or Stain
Finally, we add a layer of stain or paint. This both beautifies the surface and protects it from the elements.
Deck Staining vs. Painting
Adding a coating to your wooden surfaces ensures the wood underneath is protected from the elements, allowing it to last longer. This prevents moisture intrusion which can freeze and cause costly breaking and splintering. Insects and rot will also have a hard time getting through the barrier and causing chaos.
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.
There are several options to coat your wooden structures.
Sealing your wooden surfaces puts a clear coating on that will protect it while remaining completely natural.
Stains retain the natural-look of wood with semi-clear coatings. They include a tint that will enhance the look while allowing the natural grain to show through.
Paints are an opaque option that will create a milky finish that can be applied in any color. The natural look of the wood will be covered but colors can be matched to the palette on your home.
