Deck Staining Services Provided by CertaPro Painters® of Blue Springs

If you have a deck, fence, patio, or archways around your home, you know that the varying weather elements can take a toll on your wooden surfaces. If you don’t take proper care of them by re-sealing and re-staining at the right times, they can become a costly home maintenance expenditure that can significantly decrease the value of your home. The longer you wait to hire a painting contractor the more expensive this undertaking will become.

To protect your outdoor wooden structures, you have three options: paint, stain or seal. Each offers protection in conjunction with benefits and drawbacks. Learn more here.

The CertaPro Painters® of Blue Springs 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:

Stain Finishes

Transparent or Translucent

This type of finish can be clear or tinted but will leave the most natural wood grain showing after being applied. These are usually oil-based products that will penetrate deep into wood surfaces and are single coat applications. Wood MUST be bare to use these products in most situations. These are usually the best products to use on new decks or fences. Color choices are limited and changing colors will usually require removal of the previous coating.

Translucent Wood Deck

Semi-Transparent and Semi-Solid

These products are in between transparent and solid (some wood grain will show through). These products are usually water-based and don’t necessarily require the removal of previous coatings to be used. Depending on the desired outcome and product used, a one or two coat application may be necessary. There are numerous color options when using these stains and custom colors can be created as well. Changing colors with these stains usually limit options to similar or darker colors from the current coating. Some situations call for a “wet-on-wet” 2 coat application with these products. This consists of applying a second coat before the first coat is fully dry.

Solid stains have the same appearance as a paint (no visible wood grain). The bonding process for these stains gives much higher durability to walking surfaces than paint. Solid stains are usually water-based and can be applied over previous coatings. Any color can be made with solid stains. Color changes can be done with solid stains and will generally require at least two finish coats depending on colors. Ware and tear will be more visible with solid stains, but touch ups are fairly easy to perform.
