Did you know that most deck coatings are not meant to be re-coated? That beautiful semi-transparent stain you just put on your deck will probably not last very long in this harsh climate. In a few years, whatever you put on it will have to be completely removed and a new coating applied! Most people don't realize that they can't simply put a fresh coat of stain on top. These stains are designed to be waterproof when cured, and a new coat will not adhere to the old, cured coating.
Many contractors will give you what looks like a great price, but will pressure-wash, scuff-sand, and recoat (if that). This is a recipe not only for failure, but also for an unsightly, uneven appearance. The old coating must be completely removed!
I like to do deck staining by the book, ensuring a job that will last longer and look better. Also look at our seasonal discounts page for more info on how to save money when you need your deck refinished! If you have questions about deck staining (even if you plan to tackle the project yourself), give me a call! 303-807-1029
