A wooden deck is a wonderful investment for your home, providing you and your family with a great space for entertaining, relaxing or just accenting your home’s already beautiful landscape. Wooden decks require regular upkeep to continue looking their best and to remain in the best shape possible and regular deck staining is the most important form of upkeep for your deck.
To help you understand the importance of regular deck staining that makes it such an important part of deck upkeep and why you need to be getting it done regularly, our team of skilled residential and commercial painters in Mansfield have taken the opportunity to put together this shortlist for your reading pleasure.
Aesthetically Improved Appearance
Regular deck staining is a great way to enhance the aesthetics of your wooden deck and ensure it looks as good as the first day you had it built. At James Kate painting, we provide deck stains in a wide variety of different colors and tints, so whether you are looking for something natural looking to highlight the grain of your wood or you are looking for something to completely transform the look of your wood, we have an option available to suit your needs.
If you compare painting your deck versus having it stained, staining is the easier and faster option. The biggest difference between painting and staining is that staining doesn’t require priming, allowing you to get the job done in almost half the time that it would take to paint. This makes regular staining a much better option than painting for the homeowner in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex area. Additionally, wood stains are not as susceptible to damage from UV rays and constant foot traffic as paint — which can be worn away quite quickly and requires constant touching up.
Rot & Infestation Prevention
Staining your deck regularly doesn’t have only aesthetic benefits, but it can help to drastically improve its lifespan by preventing rot and infestation. Wood stain helps to seal your deck against both moisture and intrusion by infesting pests, helping you avoid some of the costliest problems like mold, mildew, and wood rot that could otherwise cause your deck to sag, crack and even collapse if the damage is bad enough for you deck.
Resistance to Moisture Absorption
As we have already discussed, proper staining is important for helping the wood of your deck keep moisture out. This is especially important in the winter as any moisture that seeps into your wood can freeze and cause damage to your boards. Winter has a lot of moisture, and right now is the best time to make sure that your wooden deck is well protected from it with a strong, solid seal applied by our highly skilled professional.
