If your deck looks a little dingy, cleaning it can help. But to really get your deck in shape, you also need to seal it. Constant exposure to UV rays and rain can cause neglected decks to fade, crack, split and warp. Not only does a properly-maintained deck look better, but it also lasts longer. This is a multi-day project, because there is waiting time between the cleaning and the sealing. You can do it by yourself, but using Heavy Duty Painting of Aurora, Illinois professional deck staining services will make life much easier for you.
A water test is the easiest way to ensure that the wood can absorb sealer or finish. Sprinkle water on the deck. If it soaks in immediately, the deck needs to be sealed. If the water beads up or stands on the deck your deck may not need sealing yet. However, you may need to apply a new wood treatment.
When choosing a stain, remember that the finished color varies based on the wood itself. If you are applying a new stain over an old one, choose a color that is similar to or darker than the original. To allow the new coating to penetrate into the wood, the old coating should be adequately worn or thoroughly stripped. Try a small test-patch of the stain in an inconspicuous area to ensure the proper color and appearance.
