Plano Deck Staining Services
If you think your home could use some relaxing outdoor space, a wood deck is definitely the way to go! They provide you with a great place to entertain your family and friends without robbing the kids of their college tuition.
Wood decks have different levels of durability, which mostly depend on the type of material used and the quality of craftsmanship employed. Regardless of how it’s built, however, every wood deck will eventually deteriorate. This is simply a natural consequence of its organic composition, prolonged exposure to the elements, and the amount of foot traffic it needs to bear. Regular care and maintenance is required if you want to get the most out of your deck. Fortunately, cleaning, repairing, and staining the wood periodically can help preserve its good looks despite years of barbecues.
Before staining your deck, you’ll need to clean the wood by removing dirt, debris, mildew stains, and other contaminants. Afterwards, make sure that the deck is thoroughly dried as stain does not adhere well to damp surfaces. Now, choose the type of stain you want to apply. There are plenty of varieties on the market, such as wood-toned, semi-transparent, semi-solid, and solid-colored. After you’ve bought your stain, use a natural bristle brush to carefully work the stain into the wood fibers. Once applied, the stain should help protect your deck for quite some time. Nevertheless, it’s important to check regularly if your deck is still protected. A good rule of thumb is to reapply the stain once the wood stops repelling water.
While some people may enjoy the occasional DIY project, do note that it’s highly recommended that you hire a professional if you want the job done properly. In our experience, many DIYers and homeowners who hire amateur handymen wind up dissatisfied with the results of their project. They either get a result that doesn’t look as good as they expect or doesn’t last as long as they want. So, if you really want high quality stains that endure years of abuse, do yourself a favor and hire a deck staining expert.
