Deck Staining in Truro

deck staining

Your home’s deck provides extended living space, allowing you to have backyard barbeques during the summer months, celebrate birthdays, and enjoy gatherings of family and friends all year long. However, that collection of planks, posts, skirt boards, and nails must be maintained, or it will suffer and degrade over time. At Elite Trade Painting, we offer deck staining in Truro to ensure that your deck looks great and stands the test of time.

Finding the Right Product for Your Deck

At Elite Trade Painting, we offer high quality solid and semi-transparent stain products from top manufacturers in the industry. However, they are not identical. Some of our customers benefit from solid stains, which can last up to five years but are opaque, while others benefit from semi-transparent stains, which last up to two years but show the grain of the wood. If you’re unsure what would best protect your deck and work with your budget, we can offer the guidance you need.

While there are paint products designed for use on your deck, we prefer stain. Paint is susceptible to peeling and failure, and removing it for repainting can be time-consuming and expensive.

Full Preparation and Cleaning

In addition to helping you choose the right product for deck staining our experts also offer full preparation and cleaning. We power wash and hand wash your deck and all components to remove stains, dirt, and mould. We then scrape, sand, and caulk as necessary to ensure the perfect surface for staining. Once the surface is fully prepared, we will use rollers, sprayers, and brushes to apply your stain and achieve the look that you want.

Maintaining Decks Over Time

Wood surfaces require regular maintenance in order to stand the test of time. Your deck is exposed to UV light, snow, sleet, rain, foot traffic, shovelling, and more throughout the year. This takes a toll on the finish and the wood underneath. We recommend having flat surfaces – floors, steps, and rail tops – re-coated every year or two. Upright surfaces – posts, skirts, rails, etc. – should be re-coated every three to five years. We’re happy to handle all of your maintenance needs for you, as well.
