What do deck painting services include?

Whether you're planning to have a deck constructed or your current deck's already wearing out, deck painters near you can bring it to life! Your deck is what people see from the outside, so why not make a great first impression and make it look presentable? Here are some things your painter can do to transform your deck:

Cleaning and fixing your deck

Preparing your deck before painting can help you get outstanding results. The process involves fixing screw heads and popped nails, repairing damaged boards, filling in cracks, and power washing its existing stains and finish. All these steps are necessary for proper paint adhesion, especially if you don't want to see a beautifully-painted deck with visible imperfections. You can also get someone to clean your deck to ensure that it’s all set for a paint job.

Painting your deck

Once your deck is clean and dry, your painter starts staining and painting your deck! It is advisable to do this at the time of the day when your deck is in the shade because painting under direct sunlight dries paint too quickly, making it appear patchy or uneven. They can first apply 1-2 coats of exterior stain to prepare your deck for the paint. After that, they start to paint it from top to bottom, including the railings and spindles. For best results, they can apply up to three coats of paint.

Sealing and finishing your deck

You don't want a patchy deck painting job, so it's best to let your painter touch up some areas to make the paint look uniform and even. They can seal your deck using a high-grade oil-based finish. They can also top railings and spindles with high-quality acrylic paint. Sealing your newly-painted deck creates a protective layer against water infiltration, fungal growth, and wood rot—all of which can shorten your deck's lifespan. 

Once these are all done, you can have plants delivered to you so you can decorate your deck with lush foliage and flowers. Why not top it off with outdoor furniture like an elegant chair where you can sit and relax? You can even make it more inviting by having a plunge pool installed! When it comes to making your deck as gorgeous as it can be, the possibilities are limitless!

Paint wooden decking

We have an undercover area with wood panels that needs to be swept and painted. See photos of the condition of the wood now as well as what we would like it to look like. Area is approximately 6.5m by 3.5m but there is a large 8 person in ground spa in the middle of it so the surface area to be painted is actually smaller than that. You will need to buy paint beforehand and we will reimburse the cost. We are looking for a natural look so a brown colour like in the image attached. Job needs to be done before the weekend.

Great job, thanks Ashish!
