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. Many different shades of stain can complement the look of treated wood. You can stain all decks whether they are pressure-treated or they have already been stained.

Deck Staining Can Significantly Change the Look and Feel of your Home’s Exterior

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.

Wood decking can also be a complicated decision for a homeowner; whether to stay with the semi-transparent stain or to choose a solid deck stain finish. If the decking has been cared for on a minimal bi-annual basis with consistent washing (not necessarily pressure washing) and re-staining for protection a deck can be surprisingly durable over time. If a deck has not been consistently cared for and the boards have deteriorated, a semi-transparent stain may no longer be an option. The decking imperfections can no longer be overcome with and translucent stain and will need to be covered with a
solid look instead. The solid stain will maintain a consistent layer of penetrating protection over time and hide the imperfections of a deteriorating substrate. The possible colors of solid stain vary almost as widely as that of paint itself and the tints can be matched to most color deck panels. However, once the solid stain has been applied, you have reached the “point of no return”, there is no returning to the natural beauty of a semi-transparent stain look.

We’ll work with you to find a stain that both matches your home’s style and has a protective barrier best suited for the climate in our area.
