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.
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.
