Preparing A Old Deck For Staining

If you are looking to refurbish your weathered deck the first step is to check the condition of the wood. Most decks built in northern Virginia are built from pressure treated pine. Fairfax Contractor will inspect the wood on your deck and replace any rotting or damaged lumber. If your deck has damaged wood we will replace it. The next step in staining an old deck is to completely power washing the deck. When your deck is completely dry we can then start applying the stain.

Types Of Stain For Your Deck

There are three types of stains you can use for your deck. The first type of stain you can use is a clear sealant. A clear sealant will give your deck a natural look yet let the natural beauty of the wood show. A  clear sealant is best used on a new deck project. Using a clear sealant will protect the wood on your deck from staining. The next choice for staining your deck is to use a semi-transparent stain. A semi-transparent stain will show an understated color that allows the wood’s natural grain and texture to show through. A semi-transparent stain can be used on a new or refurbished deck if you want to see the wood grain. The final type of deck stain you may want to use is a solid color stain. A solid color stain is best used on a very weathered deck. Applying a solid color stain will hide all your deck's imperfections.
