Top Deck Painting related questions

You don't need to provide tools for your deck painting service. Typically, deck painters can bring professional equipment such as brushes, rollers, power washers, high-grade putty, and paint specially formulated for decks. If you happen to have any of these on-hand, you can also have your painter use your supplies–just make sure to coordinate this with them beforehand.

It usually takes days to finish painting a deck. After power washing your deck, it's best to allow it to dry thoroughly for 48 hours. It's also best to let each coat of paint, as well as exterior stains and the paint finish, to dry overnight. You can always discuss your desired timeline with your deck painter to make sure it fits with your schedule!

A quality deck painting job done by a trusted professional can last for years, ten at most, before it needs repainting. Of course, deck paint is only one aspect of your deck aesthetics and lifespan, so make sure to have your deck regularly maintained and cleaned to make it last longer.

The most popular ones are shades of brown, blue, and red. These colors can give your deck a nice pop of color while still blending in with the natural surroundings. Grey is also a great choice as it provides a base for bright colors. It can also work with contrasting ones like black and white to make a sophisticated palette. Don't forget to consider the color of your house! Consult your deck painter to know which shade suits your home best.

It's best to paint your deck during late spring when temperatures are from 60 to 85° F and the nights are cool. You'll need to allow a couple of days for the deck wash, exterior stain, paint, and finish to dry. Summer heat can dry the paint too quickly and make it look patchy, while rainy days aren't suitable either. If you need it ASAP, coordinate with your painter to know which times of the day would be best, and keep an eye on the weather forecast as well.

If you decide not to get your deck painted, it will lose its natural color and begin to fade after six months. Without a stain, paint, and finish, it will be more susceptible to natural elements like water and fungi. These can shorten your deck's lifespan, and can also mean spending more money on deck repairs and replacement.

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!
