Choosing the best stain for your deck might be a bit tough since there are a lot of them out there. Deck Staining Portland will guide you in picking the best one for your deck. There are stains that are light. These types of stains will bring out the beauty of the wood and will complement its natural color. There are also stains that are semi-clear and are lightly pigmented. These types of stains help show off the wood’s color more. Lastly, there are solid stains that almost cover wood grain but these have the toughest finishes. Our team will be helping you determine the best type to put on your deck and give you tips on how to maintain your deck.
Before deck staining, our team will make sure that your deck is dry and clean. This also includes checking the condition of the wood planks on the deck. If your wood is even slightly damaged, it would have to be replaced. The slightest damage, dirt or crack in the wood may cause future damages on the deck despite using whatever type of stain. After all these are checked, the team would start working on the cleaning or replacement. The staining would then take place if the deck immediately after drying and cleaning since it is a race against dust that might land on the surface during staining. Deck Staining Portland also makes sure that the weather conditions are optimal during the staining process. The staining will definitely not push through under the rain and if it is sunny, the team checks the temperature. If it is too hot, the stain would dry quickly which would give the deck uneven color or brush marks.
Deck Staining Portland also keeps in mind the other things that are on the deck. Before the staining happens, painter’s tape would be applied to surfaces that do not need staining like siding. Our team would make sure that the stain would be able to penetrate open grains and pores of the deck’s wood planks.
After all these, there would refinishing procedures but it depends on how the deck is. Some refinishing waits two to three years after the first staining. Through this, it is very easy to see that staining your deck has definitely helped in prolonging its life span. If your deck needs a retouch, our team can also help out.
