Why do I need to stain my deck?

Your deck is exposed to the rain, heat, snow, ice 24 hours a day, 7 days a week 365 days a year. When the deck is left unprotected, the deck expands and contracts with the wetting and drying cycles. As a result the wood begins to dry, crack, split and warp.

​Why should I stain my deck, instead of paint it?

03

We would not recommend painting a deck or painting pressure treated exterior wood. Stain is made to penetrate the surface of the wood. Paint will sit on top of the wood, and eventually it will bubble, peel and crack.

04

​Do you use chemicals to clean the decks?

At Deck Pro, we do not use any chemicals to clean the decks. We have found that using clean water works just a well. Therefore, we do not have to worry about plant life around the deck.

How long after pressure washing do I need to waite before staining the deck?

 

  Usually 24 hours, however, there are some new stains out that will allow you to pressure wash the deck in the morning and stain it in the afternoon.

 

Once my deck is stained how long before I can walk on it?

 

  If it is a semi-transparent stain, you can usually walk on it within an hour. If it is a solid stain, it will need to dry a minimum of 24 hours or longer depending on the temperature.

 

How many coats of stain do you need to put on the deck?

 

  Most semi-transparent stains are made for a one-coat process. Usually the first coat will seal the deck so any subsequent coats will not be able to penetrate the wood. However, at Deck Pro we have found that older decks can handle 2 coats of stain without any problem. If you want a solid stain typically it  will need two coats.​
