Which Is Best: Painting or Staining Your Fence and Deck?
When fixing up your outdoor structures you may find yourself between painting and staining them. As a general rule of thumb, paint should only be used on vertical surfaces. Using paint on your deck floor may seem like a good idea to give it some color, but the amount of foot traffic and exposure to the elements will quickly cause floor paint on your deck to start peeling and chipping away. Paint on a horizontal deck floor is also very bad at collecting dust, dirt, and moisture.
That is why we recommend staining your outdoor fixtures. Staining your deck and fences not only allows them to keep their appearance longer, but a good stain will also keep water, moisture, and dirt out of your structures. Uncoated wooden decks and fences are at risk of rotting from trapping moisture and at risk of infestation from pests like termites and carpenter ants. Deck and fence staining take more time and effort to maintain than paint, but they make up for that by keeping your outdoor structures in good condition for longer.
We here at Pro Brush Painting & Remodeling offer three kinds of stains for decks and fences; clear stains, semi-transparent stains, and sold stains.
Transparent Or Clear Stains
Clear stains, as the name would imply, are water sealing coatings that let the grain show through. Clear coatings are clear because they do not contain any dyes or pigments. Clear coatings are good options when you want the warm natural appearance of the wood of your deck or fence to shine through.
Semi Transparent Stains
Semi-transparent stains add a small tint of color to the coating while also allowing the natural wood grain to show through. Semi-transparent stains soak into wood more thoroughly, so they last longer and are less prone to peeling of the surface.
Solid stains are actually somewhat like paints in that they do not soak into the wood. Most solid stains sit on top of the wood and cover the grain like paint. Solid stains are good for giving your deck or fence a bold uniform color, but they are prone to chipping and peeling like paints can be.
Our team of experts at Pro Brush Painting & Remodeling is trained to efficiently and thoroughly stain outdoor structures. We first begin by prepping the surface, cleaning off any dirt or dust and sanding down any rough edges and splinters.
They next apply the stain using fine brushes and small rollers. Synthetic brushes are ideal for applying water-based stains as natural bristles absorb the water and become less effective. The small brushes let us apply the stain so it adheres without pooling in uneven spots.
Normally, deck and fence staining require a few applications to be completed. The average number is 2 coats, though it may differ depending on the kind of stain you choose to use.
