There are few elements that can make a house more beautiful than a beautiful deck; however, decks require maintenance on an annual basis, at least.
If you’re planning on performing deck paint, you should know it can be a tricky task. Unlike sidings, the wood in decks resists more to weather conditions.
In fact, various sides of each piece of wood in your deck may suffer weathering. Some surfaces are inaccessible and impossible to protect. So, before you start your project of deck paint, you’ll probably want to check the state of the wood first.
Partially painted wood can become a huge problem with time. Even if your project of deck paint includes caulking the joints; make sure you paint all six sides of each piece.
However, if you can’t do this, we recommend you to abandon the idea of painting, and choose to stain your deck instead.
If you still want to paint, we recommend the following:
If it’s impossible to protect each piece of wood, we strongly recommend using oil-based stain instead. Besides, looking beautiful and protecting your deck, it’s absorbed by the wood; hence it doesn’t create a film that eventually peels off.
