Hosting parties and simply relaxing on your deck by yourself or with friends and family is a great American tradition. Decks are a desirable outdoor space that extends the square footage of your home without breaking the bank. However, as with most structures or home components that are found outdoors, they will require periodic maintenance, and decking is no exception.
Why You Should Paint Your Deck
There are plenty of reasons why you should paint your deck, and chief among them is for protection. A good coat of exterior paint will last up to 10 years if done by a professional. It provides a uniform look and will also hide imperfections in the wood.
However, over time, the paint will start to peel and crack, and, when this happens, it is important that you hire a decking company to reapply a fresh coat of paint to keep your deck looking and performing its best.
Why You Should Stain Your Deck
Staining your deck also guards it against the elements. While not as durable as good outdoor paint, stains can enhance the natural beauty of wood. If your decking is made from a gorgeous wood like redwood, a stain will enhance its unique characteristics and grain. If you opt for a stained deck, be sure that it gets reapplied once every year, ideally in the spring or fall.
