Deck Staining Specialists in Burlington
No matter how large or small it might be, your deck adds a great deal of value and enjoyment to your Burlington home. It’s the focal point of family gatherings and cookouts, birthday parties and relaxing nights with friends. You want your deck to look its best and to stand the test of time. At Elite Trade Painting, we have the experience and expertise to help ensure that happens.
Why Is Staining Necessary?
While it might seem like nothing but aesthetics, staining actually does many things. The most important of those is that it protects wood from damage. Your deck is exposed to a wide range of threats and sources of harm, ranging from UV light from the sun to salt and de-icer to foot traffic, shovelling snow, and a great deal more. Stain helps protect the wood of your deck, railings, and stairs from those threats.
Help Choosing the Right Stain
There are many different products on the market. At Elite Trade Painting, we use only the highest quality solid and semi-transparent stains available, but there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Our experienced professionals will help you understand the differences between solid stain and semi-transparent to choose the right option for your particular needs.
The Staining Process
At Elite Trade Painting, we believe that every customer deserves the best possible results. Because of that, we start with a strong foundation – cleaning and preparing your deck. We will hand wash and power wash (where applicable) to remove mould and mildew, dirt, debris, and stains. However, we take things further by scraping, sanding, and caulking to ensure your deck looks as good as possible when we’re done.
Applying the Stain
Stain application will depend on the type of stain you choose. For instance, if you opt for solid stain, we can use sprayers, brushes, and rollers to apply it. However, if you choose semi-transparent stain, we will finish it with brushes to ensure the best aesthetic possible.
Once we’ve stained the deck of your Burlington home, it will need to be maintained. We recommend that every year to two years, you clean and re-coat the high-traffic areas, such as the floor and stairs, as well as high-exposure areas, like the tops of the railings. Every three to five years, you should clean and re-coat posts, rails, and other areas of your deck.
