Spring Deck Staining

spring deck staining

The winter was mild and March has been cold and windy with a slow start for pressure washing and exterior restoration companies. At Carlton Cleans we offer spring deck staining services in the Maryland area when weather permits. If you are not careful, wooden decks will lose their color without a proper stain. Decks without a proper stain have a risk of “graying.” In order to keep your deck in the perfect condition you want it, consider our spring deck staining services.

Some Benefits of Spring Deck Staining

Rot Prevention

Not only will spring deck staining increase your deck’s lifespan, it will also heavily decrease the risk of rotting and infestation. The choice to stain your deck makes it look better, but it also decreases the risk of mold and mildew.

Everyday Use

The everyday use of a deck along with the weather can deteriorate your deck over time. Without proper care, you will notice your deck start to chip and crack. Constant use of a deck and activities that cause the moving of tables or chairs along the deck can also be prevented with proper staining. You might be wondering, what if I do not have any problems with my deck? Consider deck staining as a preventative measure to allow your deck to last longer than it would with no staining.

Appearance of the Deck

Staining your deck will allow for the full potential of your deck to be shown accentuating the quality of the wood grain. There are a lot of color tints when choosing to stain your deck which give you the ability to match the outside of your home improving the overall appearance of your deck and home together.

Reduced Risk of Moisture Damage

Using our spring deck staining services allows you to avoid the risk of moisture getting into your deck and causing damage.

Cabot Australian Timber Oil

Cabot ATO is a fast drying oil that will flash easily including on soft woods. Flashing is when the stain dries creating a shining finish prior to all the stain penetrating into the deck. Always take clean rags and wipe the entire deck to remove non-penetrated stain after the deck is stained prior to finishing for the day. If the deck is large you may need to do this in stages.  Carlton Cleans prefers to use conditioning oil stains like Armstrong Clark which will not flash and will penetrate completely into the deck even if it takes a few hrs.  On hard wood decks Cabot is a fine choice  but stills need to be ragged the same day as application. If Armstrong Clark is used on hard wood decks come back the next morning and rag the excess stain. Call Carlton Cleans for quality deck refinishing at 301-904-4446.
