Glen did an excellent job, transforming our deck to be as like new again. Glen is very focused to the task in hand and works hard to achieve great results. He prepared the deck, steps and areas with sanding first, then applied 2 coats of decking oil. Glen is a good communicator and I would highly recommend him. Fantastic work, thank you.

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.

Stain wood floor & also staining bar counter timber


Camberwell VIC, Australia

15th Oct 2023

I have two small projects to be tackled this week. I will need your quotes as I'm not 100% sure how much the project will cost: The room is about 5.8m x 6m, a little commercial business. 1. Staining the bar's timber facade into a walnut brown colour. 2. The original floors are wooden tiles, 30cm x 30cm. I would like to create a checkerboard pattern by white limewashing only every second wood tile so it appears much lighter than the original brown timber. It would involve prepping the floor, masking every 2nd wood tile, light sanding, applying the white limewash coating (maybe 2 or 3 coats) only on every 2nd wood tile, so it apprears like a brown and beige checkerboard floor. I'd like this job done this week as the shop is closed. I'm open to discussing the best product to use, either water-based "Feast Watson 4L Liming White Satin Timber Floor Stain and Vanish'' or alternatives. See attached photos of the room and also an image example of what I mean. I hope you can help! Please get in touch with me! - Due date: Needs to be done on Tuesday, 17 October 2023
