The first step in refinishing a deck is to make sure that the surface is clean and cleared. If you have for example paint on your decking area that is peeling, this will need to be removed. If you have patchy areas of previous stain works, we will also work on rectifying this as well as smoothing out any rough patches to ensure you have the correct foundation. Any stain works need to have a clean and clear surface to ensure the optimal result and a truly appealing and consistent appearance in the deck staining.
Design & Finish
The design and finish of your timber decking area can be dependent on the type of timber you have throughout your decking area, as well as personal preference in color. There are a range of stain colors available on the market, and we understand that this can be overwhelming. As our team at Schaumburg Painters love to share their knowledge and expertise, they would be most happy to provide you with guidance on which stain would be suited to your area and match the aesthetic look you are aiming to achieve. We can provide you with a range of swatches as well as photos to help you with visualizing how each stain would look in your area.
The first step in deck staining is to ensure that our clients are well prepared in their understanding of how long the deck refinishing project will take, and the time they will be unable to use their decking area. Once this is completed, we then set to work on preparing the deck surface. Dependent on the deck, age of the timber, type of timber and previous maintenance, preparation work can vary drastically. Some may need a gentle clean whilst others may require sanding back. When this is completed we then brush the stain over your deck several times dependent on the type of stain. From there, curing time is required to ensure the timber is untouched until dry to achieve the best results.
If you are looking to protect your deck area from stains, you may want to consider a sealer. A sealer is a coat that is applied to the top layer of your timber after the stain has been applied. This will help to repel stains and protect your timber from accidental spills.
