How soon after construction should I be staining?

Staining Guys in District of Columbia often receive inquiries to stain new decks that have remained un-treated for several months or longer because the builders told the homeowners that they needed to wait until they could apply stain to the deck. Sadly, this could not be further from the truth.

If one intends to use water based, alkyd based or other cheap stains, this would hold true because the wood needs to dry out enough to allow these inefficient products to provide some lasting results. However, when using organic based products, the wood can be stained immediately after construction. This will avoid any cracking, warping and excessive sanding when Staining your deck.

Why do prices from deck Staining companies vary so much?

Excluding student painters and other inexperienced companies, there are essentially three different types of companies that will stain a deck. These include Painting Companies, Companies with slogans such as “Pressure Wash and Seal” and Professional Wood Care Companies.

Professional painting companies will generally have an adequate knowledge of how to use stain. The quality of the stain project is a gamble depending on their experience with wood and stain products. Most of these companies will lack in experience with proper wood and stain preparation such as using proper cleaners, pressure washing and sanding. Waiting for the proper weather conditions throughout the process is usually quite troublesome for them to deal with. Prices will usually be on the higher scale because deck Staining projects are secondary to their primary painting business. Most do not offer any kind of warranty.

Pressure Wash and Seal companies are essentially as their name implies. They will wash the wood only using water and spray on a clear solution to provide some protection to your deck. The products that they use will definitely require annual maintenance. Prices will be solely based on square footage and are reflected in the cheap prices. Some of these companies will delve into stain applications but buyer-beware as these companies usually have little experience with the proper procedures to ensure that the stain will last longer than a year. Warranties are not something that you should expect with these types of companies...
