Top Staining related questions

Staining helps protect surfaces from weathering and age, especially when it comes to wooden fences and brick walls exposed to sunlight. Applying stain to furniture, walls, and floors also gives your house an upgraded look! Although painting is also a good alternative, staining lasts much longer and requires less maintenance. Staining is a meticulous and time-consuming job, so hiring an expert to do it will make life easier.

Through Airtasker, you will be able to connect with experts that can stain your furniture, wall, floor, or fence at a budget that works for you. You may also consult with your hired specialist about what type of stain and staining method works best for you. They may also give you tips on how to maintain your stained property once it’s ready for use.

The duration of the service will depend on the type of surface or furniture and the weather conditions. Staining one piece of wooden furniture can take several hours, while working on a whole house’s brick walls may take several days. It’s best to consult your hired expert, so they can give you an estimate on how long the process will take.

Your Tasker may need to wear safety equipment like goggles and gloves, especially when staining large surfaces such as walls. They may also use a sprayer, paint roller, brushes, drop cloths, and cleaning supplies. The good news is that you can ask a Tasker to bring all these. You can be as detailed as possible when posting about your staining service needs on Airtasker.

What do staining services include?

Stain can be applied on different surfaces such as wood, brick, and concrete, which means the details for each service may vary. Don’t worry; we prepared a rundown of the essential staining services you may encounter when hiring an expert on Airtasker.  


Staining prep 

First, a clear work area is ideal when staining. Extra furniture, potted plants, and frames must be removed. Staining your property or furniture will usually include cleaning it first. A Tasker can only proceed once the surface is completely dry for large surfaces such as concrete floors, wooden fences, and brick walls that need to be washed. If staining will take place outdoors, it’s essential to check the weather conditions.


Wood Staining 

When we talk of wood staining, it usually refers to fences and wooden furniture. Staining a fence gives your wood that splash of colour and protection it needs. Furniture stain may be applied to wooden cabinets, chairs, tables, bookcases, bassinets, bed frames, and doors. The wood doesn’t have to be new because restaining furniture is also possible. 


Good news: Airtasker can help you with your wood repair, and deck staining needs as well.


Brick Staining 

Whether it’s your walls, chimney, or fireplace, your home’s bricks need some care, too. The advantage of brick staining over brick painting is that stain accentuates the brick’s natural texture, and the finished product requires less maintenance. 


Before staining the whole surface, your hired expert may first test the swatch on a small patch of brick to ensure that they have achieved the desired colour. The colour can be lightened or darkened by adding water or pigment. 


Concrete Staining 

Staining can also be done on concrete floors and walls, and you can easily find concrete staining contractors near you on our platform. Much like brick staining, your hired specialist will first test the stain on a small part of concrete before applying it to the rest of the surface. 


After staining, your Tasker may apply a sealer to ensure that the concrete retains its seamless appearance. When the staining and sealing process is finished and your hired specialist has checked the surface, they will pack up their equipment. 


But if you’ve decided that staining isn’t the right fit for you, various painting services are also available on our platform.
