Wood staining is more than just an aesthetic improvement, although it does enhance your deck’s natural beauty. Staining wood decks seals them against moisture, protects them from the elements, and helps them stand up to wear and tear.
ELCO Painting offers wood staining for decks for homes and businesses throughout Rhode Island and southern Massachusetts.
When Do Decks Need Staining?
Some decking issues are going to be more obvious. If your deck has never been treated with deck stain, it is in more immediate need of attention.
The longer it’s gone untreated, the more the wood is directly exposed to moisture, heat, humidity, and temperature fluctuations. That means wooden boards, handrails, stairs, and other decking features are more vulnerable to wood rot, warping and disrepair.
That said, decks that have been previously painted or stained can have all the same issues. No paint or stain can last forever, even when you take great care of your deck. If you can’t remember the last time your deck was stained, or if you notice warpring or deteriorating wood, it’s best to schedule deck staining and maintenance before the problem worsens.
Deck staining is an investment, but large-scale repairs, health and safety risks, and a deck you can’t use are much bigger problems that you can avoid by calling a deck staining contractor.
