Painting & Staining
Why is it important to stain?
Staining greatly improves the finish of the wood, significantly benefits the durability of the structure, and protects from rot, mold and insects.
What is the right stain for me?
Depending on the condition of your wood structure, we will recommend a transparent, a semi-transparent, or an opaque stain. For newly built wood structures, transparent and semi-transparent stains are recommended. These stains allow you to keep the same basic texture and grain of the wood, while providing a protective layer. For aged decks and fences, or previously stained structures, an opaque stain is best. Opaque stains will hide any imperfections or blemishes in the wood, and offer excellent UV protection.
How often should a stain be applied?
Depending on your structure’s exposure to the elements, stain should be applied every 1-3 years. Our climate is subjected to such temperature extremes, that we recommend staining at least every 2 years. We understand that staining can be time-consuming, tiresome, and tedious. Let our staining team do a professional job tailored to your wants and desires.
