    Cleaning And Sanding

    Your deck needs to be completely clean before we can stain it - that means getting rid of all the dirt, mildew and any current stain. We'll power wash it with eco-friendly chemicals to give it a much-needed refresh. We will need access to a water tap. Any necessary sanding will happen directly before we stain your deck.

  • 3
    Surface Preparation

    Covering the house siding with the masking film will protect it from any paint or stain that might get on it from the spray gun. You should also move any nearby lawn features to the other side of the yard and cover any flowers with drop cloths. We will make sure no overspray will end up where we don't want it.

    Spray Stain Applied

    After your deck has been sanded and cleaned and everything that requires masking has been prepared, we will apply the stain of your choice. We have a wide variety of colors for you to choose from. Once the stain has been applied, we will give the deck a final power washing to remove any excess stain.

water based stain

Water Based Stain

Water-based stains have come a long way in recent years, and they are now a viable option for staining a deck.

Water-based stains have several advantages over oil-based stains, including:

  • They’re easier to apply. Water-based stains can be applied with a pump sprayer, which makes the process much faster and easier than applying an oil-based stain.
  • They’re less smelly. Water-based stains have very little odor, so you won’t have to worry about your deck smelling like a chemical factory.
  • They’re safer. Water-based stains are non-toxic and low-VOC, so they’re much safer for you, your family, and the environment.
  • They’re more durable. Water-based stains have better UV protection than oil-based stains, so they will last longer without fading.
  • They’re easier to clean up. Water-based stains can be cleaned up with just soap and water, while oil-based stains require mineral spirits or paint thinner.

If you’re looking for a deck stain that is easy to apply, safe, durable, and easy to clean up, a water-based stain is the way to go. Also recycling water based paints is better for environment compared to oil-based products.

oil based stain

Oil Based Stain

When it comes to choosing a deck stain, there are a few different types to choose from.

One type of deck stain is an oil-based stain. It was a very popular product before water based stains were introduced to general public.

Oil-based stains have a few benefits and concerns that other types of stains do not.

Here are a few benefits of using an oil-based deck stain:

  • Oil-based stains penetrate deep into the wood. This means that the color will last longer because it is not just sitting on the surface.
  • Oil-based stains are more resistant to fading and peeling.
  • Oil-based stains can be reapplied more easily than other types of stains.
  • Oil-based stains provide a natural look to the wood.
  • Oil-based stains are easier to work with than water-based stains.
  • Oil-based stains could be toxic and bad for environment.
  • Oil-based stains sometimes cost more per can.

If you are looking for a deck stain that will last long and provide a natural look, then an oil-based deck stain is a good option for you. This is best choice for when you are just looking to refresh your deck before listing the house, for example.

Transparent Stain

Transparent deck stains offer many benefits that make them a great choice for anyone looking to protect their deck.

One of the biggest benefits is that they offer a natural look that allows the wood grain to show through. This is a great option for anyone who wants to show off the beauty of their wood without hiding it under a coat of paint. Transparent stains also provide excellent protection from weather damage and UV rays.

Additionally, they are moisture-resistant, which helps to keep your deck looking great for years to come. Another great benefit of transparent stains is that they don’t get too slippery, making them safe for walking on even when wet. Additionally, they are very easy to maintain and are quite economical.

However, there are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a transparent stain for your deck.

First, you will see imperfections more easily with a transparent stain. This means that if your deck has any cracks or damage, it will be more visible.

Additionally, transparent stains can be stained over with solid stains if you want to change the color in the future. However, there are limited colors available in transparent stains.

Semi-transparent Stain

A budget-friendly option that will help to improve the look of your deck, a semi-transparent stain is a great choice.

A semi-transparent deck stain is a great way to add color to your deck while still allowing the wood grain to show through. There are many benefits to using a semi-transparent stain on your deck, including the following:

  • Semi-solid stains are a better choice for decks that have seen their share of cookouts. You’ll still see some grain, but you’ll hide more of the wear and tear your deck has endured.
  • With semi-transparent stains, the pigment colour varies with the wood used for the deck. The colour of the stain is only a general idea because the wood’s natural colour will affect the overall look of the deck stain.
  • It is very easy to maintain semi-transparent stains on your deck. The dirt can be cleaned with a deck cleaner. While re-coating, there is no need for sanding or stripping.

Semi transparent stain is a winner for decks age up to 10 years, previously stained without color.

Solid Color Stain

Solid deck stains provide a wide variety of color options, making it easy to find the perfect match for your home.

They also mask imperfections and can be easy to clean.

Plus, solid deck stains are moisture-resistant and block UV rays, making them a great choice for protecting your deck from the elements.

There are a few things to consider before using a solid deck stain on your wood surface.

First, once you use a solid stain, it is very difficult to go back to using a transparent stain.

This is because the solid stain will hide the natural grains of the wood, which can give your deck an artificial look.

Additionally, solid stains will crack, peel, and blister over time, so it is important to be aware of these potential problems before using this type of stain.

There are many reasons to solid stain your deck. If you want to refresh the color of your deck, match your house trim, or simply maintain the current color, solid staining your deck could be right for you. Solid stain can last up to 10 years in protected areas, but in wet, sun-drenched, or heavy foot traffic areas, you may need to re-coat your deck every year.

Deck And Fence Stain Applicators We Use

Deck Stain With Airless Sprayer

If you’re looking to protect your deck and keep it looking great for years to come, you should definitely consider using a deck stain with an airless sprayer. Here are just some of the benefits of using an airless sprayer for your deck staining project:

  • Spraying covers better and the application is more uniform achieving very smooth and factory like finish, nothing like you can get using brushing or rollers.
  • Spraying has no brush strokes and offers a more durable satin finish that looks much nicer and professional, not to mention it takes less time to complete the job.
  • Hand brushing a new color may not give you the complete, even coverage you are looking for and will require more coats to achieve desired finish look.

So if you’re looking for a deck stain that will offer better coverage and a more uniform application, an airless sprayer is definitely the way to go!

At Wallet Friendly Handyman we are using professional grade true airless sprayer on every job, that allows us to distinguish ourself from competitors who use traditional brush and roller techniques. This gives us an edge to compete on quality rather than on value alone. Results of air sprayer is way superior when it comes to staining your deck.

Deck Stain With Brush

So, which is the best brush to apply stain? It really depends on the type of exterior stain you’re using. If you’re not sure, ask a sales associate at your local home improvement store. They should be able to help you find the perfect brush for your project.

When it comes to choosing the right paint brush, there are a few things you need to take into consideration. The type of exterior stain you’re using, the type of bristles on the brush, and your budget are all important factors.

If you’re using an alkyd or oil-based stain, natural bristles are the way to go. They’re less likely to leave brush marks and they can be cleaned and reused for future projects. Synthetic bristles are best for 100 percent acrylic and acrylic or oil stains. They won’t lose their shape and they’re easy to clean.

When it comes to budget, paint brushes are typically more wallet-friendly than paint sprayers. However, it will take longer to stain your surfaces using a brush. If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to apply stain, a paint sprayer is the way to go. But if you’re on a budget and you don’t mind taking your time, a brush is the way to go.

No matter what type of brush you choose, make sure you’re using the best brush for the job. That way, you’ll get the best results and your surfaces will look great.

using roller to stain the deck

Deck Stain With Roller

If you’re looking for a fast and easy way to apply stain to your surfaces, using a roller is the way to go. Roller covers slide onto a roller head, which can then be attached to a pole, making it easy to cover a large area in a shorter amount of time. And when it comes to finding the best roller for the job, it all depends on the type of stain you’re using. For example, natural fiber rollers are best with alkyd stains, but they can mat if used with acrylic or acrylic/oil coatings. Synthetic fibers, on the other hand, should be used with 100 percent acrylic and acrylic/oil stains.

When it comes to naps, there are a few things to keep in mind. A nap is the thickness or configuration of a roller, and they come in different lengths. For example, a 3/16- to 1/4-inch roller cover will give you smooth results on smooth surfaces, while a 3/8- to 1/2-inch roller cover is best for lightly textured surfaces. And when applying stain to rough surfaces, like weathered exterior wood, you’ll want to use a 3/4-inch or thicker roller cover.

So whether you’re looking for an easy and efficient way to apply stain or you need a specific type of roller for the job, Wallet Friendly Handyman has you covered. We carry a wide selection of roller covers and roller heads to fit your every need. Let us know if you need any help with choosing right roller for your deck stain job.
