Deck staining and painting is easy and possible with Painter1!
Paint can be a great option if you are looking for something relatively low maintenance and long-lasting. A paint job done by Painter1 of Portland Metro can last for years to come! Paint is also suitable if your deck is showing its age. A new coat of paint can help hide unsightly flaws and make everything look crisp and put together. There are mainly two types of paint to choose for your deck:
- Oil-Based Paint: These paints are typically durable and can withstand daily wear and tear — perfect for people who plan to use their deck a lot. They protect the wood from moisture and adhere well to surfaces to offer a smooth finish.
- Latex Paint: These paints are generally best for areas with higher temperatures and lots of sun exposure, as they protect the wood from UV fading. They are also crack and chip resistant, emit less odor, and dry nice and quick!
Using paint can be an excellent option for your deck, but there are a few things to consider before deciding.
- Paint Traps Moisture in the Wood: When it rains, water can pool, and this will cause the wood to expand naturally. Over time, as the deck expands and contracts with the weather, the paint will start to chip and peel.
- Paint is Permanent: If you choose to paint your deck, it can make it challenging to stain later on. You can always paint another layer, but getting it back down to the natural wood is time-consuming and often expensive.
If you love the look of your natural wood, then a stain is a fantastic option! A wood stain can enhance your deck's warm, rich luster and create a beautiful, inviting environment for your outdoor space. Applying a stain is protective for natural wood because it penetrates the timber and gets into the grain, sealing it against moisture and rot. You also get to choose how opaque the stain is, which gives you plenty of creative control.There are many options to choose from when looking for wood stains in Portland; here are some of the most common choices:
- Solid Stains: These stains add a dark rich layer to the wood and are similar to paint because they cover most of the wood's natural elements and grains.
- Semitransparent Stains: These stains incorporate some color but still allow the wood’s natural patterns and unique qualities to show through. These also provide UV protection and weatherproofing for the wood.
- Clear Wood Preserves: These are perfect for a beautiful wood deck where you want the natural color and grains to be displayed. Some of these stains have UV damage protection, and most contain a fungicide to protect against mildew and mold.
Choosing to stain can be an excellent choice for your deck. But much like painting, there are things to be aware of before deciding.
- Wood Stain is Not Long-Lasting: A stained deck may need to be redone every two years with lots of use. However, there are stain options that last closer to 3-5 years.
- Some Wood Doesn't Hold Stain Well: When choosing to paint or stain, it is essential to know what type of wood you have and how a stain will adhere to it. If you have a dense wood deck, it may be better to opt for an oil-based stain or apply a clear wood preservative.
