Deck Painting & Staining University Park, TX

If your deck looks a bit dirty, cleaning it can help. However, if you’re looking to really get your deck in top shape, you also should seal it. Consistent exposure to UV rays and rainstorms can cause timeworn decks to fade, crack, split and bend. Plus, not only does a well-maintained deck look more inviting, but it also extends its life longer. This project is a multi-day assignment due to the required waiting time between cleaning and sealing. Of course, you can do it by yourself, but using Dallas Christian Painters’ professional services will undoubtedly make your life much easier.

A simple water test is the most uncomplicated way to confirm that the wood can absorb a new sealer or finish. All you need to do is squirt water on the deck. If it absorbs instantly, it’s time to seal the deck to prevent further damage or wood rot. However, if the water beads up or remains on the deck, it may not need to be sealed just yet. Instead, you may only need to apply a new wood treatment.

Selecting a Stain or Sealer for Your Deck

Be sure to select a high-quality deck stain or sealer that will repel water, fight mildew, and stop fading in high-traffic areas. Deck sealers and stains are either oil-based or water-based. The coloring of oil-based finishes tends to remain intensely colored a while longer. However, the water-based finishes are typically more durable and long-lasting. There are four main categories of deck stains and sealants listed in order below. Each contains increasing quantities of coloring. As a result, the texture and wood grain will be less visible depending on how much pigment you apply. Plus, you’ll have the added benefit of protecting your wood.

  • Clear, water repellant usually supplies basic preservation, including minimal UV protection, waterproofing, and occasionally mold growth prevention. However, since these are transparent or natural-look finishes, there is minimal UV protection, and the underlying wood will start to fade within a few months. Application life ranges from 6 months to up to 2 years.
  • Toner or Tinted water repellent is remarkably similar to the clear sealant. However, this version has additional pigment or coloring added. This provides added defense against sun damage and further graying of the wood. Plus, the color can help restore the wood’s original appearance even if only a small amount of fading has occurred.
  • Semi-transparent stains include additional pigment, delivering subtle color while still revealing the texture and grain of the wood. These provide extra protection against sun and water damage, typically lasting three or four years. Remember that the finished color can vary depending on the wood itself when choosing a stain. Select a similar or darker shade than the original when applying a new stain over the old one. The old layer should be adequately worn out or completely stripped for the new coating to penetrate the wood. Try a small test patch of the stain in a discreet area to verify the proper color and appearance.

    Will Your Fence Stain Inspire Your Neighbors?

    Sometimes one neighbor will spark a painting or staining revolution.  Everyone notices that the area has been getting a little dingy, or the stain seems to be wearing off, but no one is sure what needs to change.  Then one person decides it’s time to bring in a professional and paint or stain their fence and it clicks for everyone.  It’s time for a little update!  It’s so encouraging to see people who care about not just their home, but the entire neighborhood and its fresh look.
