The advantages of using a stain are often overlooked. Stains don’t require primers. Stains seal the surface and can be reapplied in the future with little to no preparation. Basically wash the surface and install another coat. Stains weather uniformly and are designed to weather evenly. Because you expect to re-paint wood frequently it makes sense to stain a wood product and then just install another coat in the future without having to go through an entire preparation cycle. 

Stains also enhance the beauty of wood. Natural elements like wood are generally enhanced by stain and can add dimension and warmth to an otherwise cold surface.

Wood weathers and wears over time and sometimes it will also become stained by waiting too long to reapply more stains. If this is the case the surface stain must be removed and the entire surface will require sanding. Sanding to a uniform, clean surface will allow the stain to penetrate evenly and leave the finish looking consistent. Great surface preparation is the key to outstanding results. This is a step that can’t be overlooked. Skip a step and the wood won’t look correct or the beauty of the natural wood grain will be masked.

There is great debate over the types of stains available outside for decks and patios.  More times than not we recommend environmentally friendly options and water-borne stains.  But sometimes the amount of snow and ice will require a moisture resistant finish and we have experience with the long term result. Call us today and we’ll be happy to explain.
