Determining whether to paint or stain your deck largely depends on the material it’s made of. Bellevue understands the need to bring out the best for your deck and the benefits of using the right finishing. Our painting contractors are seasoned experts in deck staining or painting and would typically walk you through the best finishings that suit your deck type when giving you a free estimate.
If you choose to paint a wooden deck, you should be aware that this would cover up the texture of the wood and may subsequently lock in moisture under the coating. This locked in moisture could eventually make the wood rot, leading to more expenses. The process of peeling paint is also another factor to consider with painting your wooden deck.
On the other hand, deck staining would be more appropriate for wood as it seeps into it without creating a coated layer on top. Deck staining is usually the ideal finishing for wood and although it typically calls more initially, the long term maintenance costs are by far cheaper.
You should also be aware that some deck types may not require any additional finishings and may be used in their natural state. One of our house painting professionals would be able to have a free one on one consultation with you to discuss your decking finishing options with you before providing an estimate.
