Williams Painting does more than painting. We stain decks and wood trim for home owners and contractors alike. There are many different types of stain to choose from - transparent, semi-transparent, semi-solid and solid stains - depending on the look you want to achieve.
These days we are spoiled with a variety of stunning colors in stains, so choices are almost limitless. Consider a deck stained in cedar, with hunter green trim - stunning! Colors range from almost colorless to deep, dark colors in every hue.
Choose a long lasting stain (7 - 10 years), or else you will have to do the work all over again in 2 years.
Taking care of outside wood elements, like decks and fences is important to improve the appearance of the house, as well as saving money. Also note that brand new wood fences and decks ideally need to weather for about a year before they should be stained. New wood does not stain well, and if you added new wood to an existing wood structure, it is impossible to match color unless the new wood has had a chance to weather.
