Now that warm weather is here, so is deck-sitting weather. There’s nothing better than hanging with family or friends, beverage in hand, enjoying the long summer nights. Keeping your deck in tip-top shape means maintenance so you can enjoy it longer – and keep up curb appeal and home value. Deck restaining is a big part of home maintenance, along with deck cleaning.
But deck staining requires time, tools and energy – and a weekend, at least, to do it right. If you’d rather spend your weekend on things besides restaining a deck, we get it. And we have you covered. Here’s why it’s smart to hire a deck staining service to do the work for you.
Skip the Deck Staining Tools and Supplies
Like any big DIY project, deck restaining requires certain tools and supplies. For example, you’ll need to acquire a Shop-Vac, deck cleaner, an orbital sander* and a power washer for cleaning. Once the deck is ready to stain, you’ll need the stain itself, plus deck sealer, paint brushes or a stain applicator with pads.
Deck staining services, like Paintzen, will have all of these tools and materials – and they’re usually higher quality than homeowners can get (or want to spend the money on and store).
Don’t Sweat It
Hiring a deck staining service saves you time spent laboring over the process. Just think: no scrubbing, no sanding*, no staining – no sweating.
Plus, most deck staining services bring a crew, which cuts their time, getting you a newly stained deck more quickly than you could do it yourself.
Get It Done Right the First Time
Paint pros are just that – pros. They know the best way to clean and stain a deck, with no do-overs. If you’ve never restained a deck before, you might find yourself taking longer to DIY it or even making costly mistakes that require you to go back and redo. A paint pro can get it done right the first time, taking the burden from you and giving you a higher quality project than you could do yourself.
Deck Restaining: Enjoy Longer-Lasting Results
Better-quality tools and supplies, and efficient, experienced painters lead to longer-lasting results. Professionally stained decks can last significantly longer than a poorly stained deck. This gives your deck the best protection, keeps your house looking great and saves you money in the long run.
