How Stain Protects Wood
Stains are not just a cosmetic finish. It penetrates the wood grain to seal it and protect it from moisture, while also allowing moisture to escape. In a sense, stain “breathes,” expanding and contracting along with wood, unlike paint, which is a rigid finish that will eventually crack or peel.
You are able to select a stain that helps fits your needs, such as:
- Clear coat stain that preserves the natural beauty of wood decking
- Tinted stain that offers better protection against UV rays, which, over time
- Toners and semi-transparent stains offer more UV protection than clear coats while still allowing the wood’s natural grain to show through
- Semi-solid and solid stains minimize the appearance of natural wood grain but offer superior UV protection
The Staining Process
Starting with a good foundation is an important part of the staining process, so we begin by power-washing a deck to remove dirt or other substances that might make wood unevenly absorb the stain. We apply one coat of stain, because two coats may interfere with the stain’s ability to protect and breathe with the wood.
To get the most life out of your wood deck, plan to re-stain it every year or two, as all stain will fade. Avoid using harsh cleaners like bleach that can damage the wood. And avoid letting falling leaves or other plant matter accumulate on the decking. You have a lot of options when it comes to finding deck staining companies, but we believe our expertise, professionalism, and reliability are the best you’ll find in Indianapolis.
