When a homeowner considers deck staining services they expect the result to be as they expected them and to last long. This can only be possible if they take their time in each step ensuring they are doing what is expected. It is also wise to wait for the right period to stain as some seasons can be very unfavorable for this activity, like the rainy season would destroy the stain before drying. At Parker CO Painting we know how to prepare the deck, what kinds of stain to use, and how to finish the job so that your deck looks beautiful and remains that way for years to come.
First, we get rid of the remains of the previous stains or paint then apply a deck cleaner. Cleaning should also not only be done to old decks that require staining again but also to new ones to remove ‘mill scale’ which could prevent efficient penetration of stain int the wood. The product usually penetrates the wood so deeply lifting the dirt up making the cleaning work way easier. The deck cleaner removes all sorts of dirt from algae to mold and every kind of dirt you can think of. Once the deck is cleaned completely we allow the deck to dry completely before we proceed. The next step is to use wood brighteners. This helps to increase penetration and make old wood appear brand new. After this step, we rinse the wood thoroughly with a lot of water to remove any chemicals that were present in the deck cleaners and wood brighteners, this helps to prevent from the cleaners and brighteners from resurfacing which could destroy the stain.
Next we ensure that all the nails that may appear above the surface be hammered inside as nails may making your staining rough. Also any are that should not be stained should be taped. This should be done since stain penetrates wood quiet easily and the result of staining unwanted areas could be undesirable.
We apply the stain or paint properly and use the proper amount of coats to ensure the best possible outcome for your deck. The deck will have the correct coverage, look awesome, be protected from the sun and weather, and last as long as possible.
We are located in Parker Colorado, however we do provide our deck staining services throughout the Denver Metro Area to include these cities.
