Deck Staining Process


Before embarking on the journey to re-stain your deck, there are important preparatory steps that should be taken to ensure optimal results. These steps generally involve other services such as deck cleaning and sanding.

  1. Deck cleaning is a vital first step that helps remove any dirt, grime, and mildew that could prevent the stain from adhering properly. This process may involve power washing and a specialized cleaning solution to thoroughly cleanse the wood. Consider visiting Master Decker’s guide on deck cleaning for a detailed process.
  2. Next is the sanding process. This step ensures a smooth and even surface for the stain to adhere to. Sanding can remove old, peeling stain, splinters, and minor surface imperfections that could interfere with the staining process. It usually involves two stages: an initial sanding with coarse-grit paper to remove surface imperfections, followed by a final pass with finer-grit paper to smooth the surface. Find more about this process at Master Decker’s deck sanding guide. It’s worth noting that before initiating these steps, inspecting your deck for any damages is crucial. Repair any loose nails, cracked or rotten boards to ensure your deck is structurally sound.
  3. After these steps are completed, your deck will be ready for staining. With a clean and smooth surface, the stain will be able to penetrate effectively and evenly, giving your deck a beautiful and durable finish. For more guidance on this, you can visit Master Decker’s guide on deck staining.

    Remember, good preparation is key to a successful deck staining project. Master Decker is here to help guide you through each step of the process.
