Deck staining done right
We always recommend using Sherwin Williams SuperDeck Solid Acrylic Stain for the best protection of your deck. We stain Decks if we are staining/painting the whole house . We always recommend using a Solid Acrylic Stain, as opposed to a Semi-Trans stain for your deck to look better and last longer. With a Solid Acrylic Stain, you can use the same color that you are using on your house, or you can go with a totally different color for the deck. All the choices of colors that you have for your house can also be used for your Deck, along with some other colors that come in the SuperDeck brochure.
We are often asked ” How often should you stain the deck?”. That all depends on the Deck, along with the weather conditions and the foot traffic on the Deck. Because of the foot traffic, a Deck is often stained more that a house is stained. A typical house is done every 5-7 years to be on the best maintenance schedule. We occasionally , though, need to do the Decks for our customers more often, possibly every few years. Many of our customers, though, only do their Decks when they are doing their house staining.
