Casey’s Painting will refurbish your old decks and make them look new again. Depending on your application, we pressure wash your deck with either a light wash or chemical strip. We use only top-of-the-line products to seal and protect your decks.
Depending on sunlight exposure and weather conditions in your area your deck will need re-application every one to three years. A transparent stain tends to last a little longer than natural or most clear sealers because they have more color pigments for protection from the sun. Transparent stains come in several different colors. Think long-term if you choose an unnatural color. If you decide to go back to wood tones, the previous stain will have to be removed.
A solid-color wood stain penetrates the wood and allows some of the texture and grain to show. The main disadvantage of solid stains is that they tend to show wear on heavy-traffic areas, and when the finish starts breaking down, it can peel and look bad. A transparent stain won’t peel; however it will give the appearance of fading.
