What is the first thing you think of when thinking about enjoying the summer months? A cold drink in your hand? A cool refreshing pool?

There is a lot to think about and consider when it comes to painting your deck. A deck like any floor will receive more wear and tear compared to other painted areas of your home. On top of all that, you need to consider the outside elements and their effect on your painted deck.
It is for the above reasons why many people, including us, recommend going with a deck painting company when you are ready to paint your deck. Here are some other benefits and things to consider when considering what you want to do with your deck.
One thing that is certain above anything else is you cannot leave your deck untreated. Not only will the hot Texas summers damage your wood, but the exposure to rain and other outside elements will cause the wood on your deck to warp, crack, and eventually break down. This doesn’t just affect the beauty of your deck, but it can also become dangerous for anyone standing or sitting on the deck.
Adding paint to your deck acts as a barrier between the wood and outside elements. Also, if you choose to go with a “cool” color for your deck, it can help reflect sunlight away from your wood.
If there is one thing we know about Texans, no matter the temperature, they enjoy spending as much time outside as possible. For this reason, many Texans look for features like decks and pools when considering their next home purchase. If you are looking to sell your home, professional deck painting services may be in your best interest. Nobody wants to buy a home with a dirty rundown deck.
When it comes to decks, paint is not the only option when it comes to upgrading the aesthetics of your deck. With the popularity of minimal and natural styling, many homeowners choose to stain their deck instead of painting it. Staining is great because it allows you to show off the natural grain of the wood. Many homeowners believe this natural wood grain gives their deck a more “high-end” look over paint. Here at Madrone painting, we offer deck staining services on top of our painting services.
However, it is important to note that while many people enjoy the aesthetic of stained decks over painted decks, staining does not offer the same protection as paint. This includes less resistance to rain and other outside elements. Also, staining cannot offer the same protection against the sun as paint can. For these reasons, staining on a deck should be redone every three to four years compared to ten years for paint.
The deck of your home is constantly exposed to weather and other outside elements. For this reason, you may need to have your deck repainted or stained more often compared to other areas of your home. Transparent stains should be reapplied every one to two years. Solid stains and paint can last anywhere from five to seven years.
Like with any home improvement projects, several factors determine the price of painting your deck. Here are just a few of the things we look at when determining our estimate:
Painting a deck can be an extremely time-consuming and stressful endeavor. We recommend that you look into fence painting services. Why not let the professionals handle it giving your more time to focus on more important things.
Usually, you want to get your deck painted or stained during the off-season when it is colder outside. This will ensure your deck is completed before the nice weather rolls in. It is important to talk with a professional painter so you can work out a plan specifically for your needs.
