Benefits Of Deck Painting

If you’re on the fence about either painting or staining your deck, our team of professional painters highlight some things that you might want to keep in mind. The benefits of painting your deck include:

  • A paint finish is thicker than stain and can fill in any gaps or imperfections on your deck
  • Paint is better at protecting your deck against sun damage, rot, and mold
  • With paint, your colour options are limitless
  • If the paint is treated and applied correctly, it can protect your wood so that washing it is easier


Although painting your deck provides lots of advantages, keep in mind that the natural look of the wood won’t really be visible through the layer of paint. Also, if you’ve decided to paint your deck instead of staining it, it’s incredibly difficult to go back.

Benefits Of deck Staining

If you’re leaning towards staining your deck instead of painting it, our deck painting and staining crew highlights somethings to consider:

  • Stain allows the natural beauty of the wood to shine through
  • Stained decks are generally less slippery than painted decks (especially when wet and in the winter)
  • It’s more forgiving than paint, if adding stain later on, it blends in much better than paint
  • If choosing the right stain, it can protect and preserve the wood without the need for a thick layer of stain


Staining is an ideal choice if you prefer the look of the grain and texture of wood. Keep in mind that you need to constantly stain your deck, whereas painting last considerably longer. Also, there are many shades of stain available, but colour options are not as diverse as with paint.

DECK painting & Staining FAQs

It’s completely based on your personal preference. Staining takes less time than painting and can keep the natural look of the wood, but painting lasts longer and provides better protection. 

To keep a deck looking fresh and to prolong its lifespan, you should stain your deck every 2-3 years.

If you opt for painting your deck instead of staining it, a deck paint job can last anywhere from 10-15 years before it needs to be repainted.

With deck stains, you don’t have as much options as paint, but there are a variety of different products that result in different looking finishes. You can choose from clear, tinted, semitransparent, and solid stain.
