Choosing the Best Stain
Not sure which stain would be the best for your wood deck or fence? We can help! The team at 360° Painting of High Country is happy to offer our expertise, which we have accumulated throughout our years of experience. There are a variety of stain options, and which one is best for your project will depend primarily on how much color and protection you prefer. You want to make sure you choose a stain that repels water, resists mildew, and prevents fading in high-traffic areas.
Some stain options include:
- Clear water repellant, which doesn’t offer a lot of protection from the elements, allows the wood grain and texture to show.
- Toner or tinted water repellant offers just a bit of color, or pigmentation, with an increased amount of protection for your wood. This color can help to restore the original look of wood that has faded.
- Semi-transparent stains contain more pigment, which results in less wood grain and texture showing through. However, the protection from this stain lasts longer.
- Solid stains provide the most pigment and the best protection against the elements. However, the deep color hides most of the wood grain and texture. The performance of this stain is often five years or more.
Does My Wood Need Sealing?
Many homeowners believe that the purpose of finishing and sealing is simply to add color to wood. Though that certainly is one of the reasons, the protection that comes with these stains and sealants is just as, if not more, important. To determine if your wood needs to be treated, we recommend the water test. Simply sprinkle a few drops of water on the wood, and if it absorbs, then your wood needs to be sealed.
