Deck Staining FAQ

Why should I stain my deck every two years?

The forces of weather can be devastating to wood. The Suns ultra violet rays can damage the wood fibers. Rain, snow, and morning dew quickly absorbed by unprotected wood, causing it to swell and cup. When the sun's heat dries the wood it shrinks. These cycles of wet and dry, swelling and shrinking Cause wood to warp, split, crack, becoming discolored and unattractive. Cleaning will remove the discoloration and prepare and clean surface for the stain or sealer. The sealer or stain will provided a protective coating to extend the life or your investment.
