Deck Staining Service
Decks are exposed to all types of elements, including harsh weather and sun. Staining your deck will not only highlight the wood grain and improve 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.
Deck staining is a fantastic way to protect your deck, beautify the wood, and boost your home’s curb appeal. We specialize in a diverse range of deck stain colors, including natural finishes that keep the wood grain on display.
The use of stain can add color and enhance the natural beauty of your deck. If you have been told that you cannot apply a stain to your stained/treated wood, this is not true. There are several types of deck stains available for previously stained surfaces. There are also a variety of different shades of stain that can add to the natural look of treated wood.

When To Re-Stain Your Deck
We recommend homeowners stain their decks every three to five years. The lifespan of your deck stain will depend on several different factors including:
Properly maintaining your deck is important. UV ray sunlight, rain, and insects can cause damage to your deck if not properly protected by a transparent stain sealer. After years of natural weathering and damaging elements, the deck can dry out, crack, and give way under your feet.
You can expect typical use of your deck to begin wearing away at the stain after several months. Feet scuff up the surface and bits of dirt between shoes begin to wear away at it, like sandpaper.
When is it time to reapply deck stain?
Each time you apply another coat on your deck, the older one will start to form a film on top. Too many coats of stain will result in a thick coating that may cause your deck to experience paint failure. Therefore, it is important to disregard the popular idea that more coats equal better protection. We recommend reapplying deck stains every 3 years.
Services from a Deck Staining Company
Once the right staining conditions are met, we can apply your new deck stain in an average of 2-4 hours. It will take up to 4 hours per 100 square feet to dry, so you should avoid using your deck until the day after the stain has been applied.
The most difficult aspect of staining a deck is often preparing the wood for the stain. While wood stains will protect the wood, they also penetrate it, so it’s important that stains are properly applied and evenly distributed to maintain the strength and integrity of your deck. Using a professional deck staining company is a great way to ensure that your deck will not only look beautiful, but will also remain structurally sound.
