Protect your wood and concrete surfaces with exterior stains. A few coats of wood stain can keep your deck vibrant, healthy and looking great for years. The same goes for garage floors and basements.
Prep. Prep. Prep.
We can’t emphasize enough how important it is to prep your deck before you stain it. Even new wood needs to be prepped. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions before you get to staining or paining. Cleaning is an essential part of the project. It will stop premature peeling and make your stain last longer. A good rule of thumb is: Take at least as much time to prep as you will for painting.
Which Wood Stain Should I Get?
Consider the age of your deck. A new wood deck does well with transparent wood stain, a deck 5 to 10 years can take a semi-transparent stain. Protect your older decks with a solid color. It also comes down to how you want the deck to look, too. Stain finish varies according to how much natural wood grain shows. Invest in a durable long-lasting wood stain so you won’t have to reapply anytime soon.
