Why Should I Stain My Wooden Deck?

Here are 3 answers to the question, ‘Why should I stain my wooden deck or porch?’ from doityourself.com:

1) Make Your Wood Waterproof

Wood decks and porches are exposed to water throughout their lifetimes. Unlike paint that sits on the wood surface, Superdeck Stain penetrates deep within the wood itself. This protects the boards and repel moisture from the inside out.

2) Rot Protection

Once wood rots, it cannot be repaired, and it might create a dangerous deck or porch. According to doityourself.com, “Wood stain protects your wood from all kinds of rot. Staining your wood will keep out termites, mold, mildew, and many other pests that can cause rot.”

3) Blocking UV Rays

Repeated exposure to sunlight can damage wood and fade wood color. Superdeck Stain contains the highest quality iron oxide pigments to create long-lasting colors and inhibit UV damage caused by the sun. Their waterborne Semi-Transparent Stain is formulated for 3 years of durability. This unique formula penetrates deeply offering excellent UV protection and lasting defense against premature weathering and mildew.

4) Preserving Its Beauty

Keeping your deck attractive without outstanding maintenance is possible with regular sealing and staining. Make sure to choose high-quality products and methods to ensure the deck is sealed and protected from the elements. A quality stain can prevent excess moisture from which can then develop mold.

4) Cost Savings

Choosing the right coat for your project can help you save money and long-term complications for your deck. Wood stains do need to be reapplied eventually but by consulting in one of our professionals, we can guide you in the right direction.
