Restaining a Deck

Have you ever run into a home project you estimate to take 3-4 hours that actually turns into a multi-day project? One of the projects many of our clients run into a lot that fit that category is restaining a deck.  At first glance, it may seem like popping open a can of paint and going to work is all that needs to be done. However, a deck like this one needs to be swept and cleaned with pressured air before painting can even begin.

After that, the deck needs to be dry and prepped with a wood sealer primer. That is followed up by two full coats of paint. For many, there is more labor than originally expected that goes into getting every crack and crevice of a deck, especially if the wood is older. The more wear and tear your wood shows, the more time it takes to get it back to its original conditions for sealing and holding a new color of paint.

If you have a deck that’s in need of a new color or touch-up, please reach out to our office staff at [email protected] for a free quote today!
