When sealing a deck, fence, playset, or other exterior structure, iPaint Painting recommends applying a sealer that has a semi-transparent stain. The sealer acts as a barrier, keeping out water and moisture, but a clear sealer will not keep the wood from turning gray. It is the stain pigments in a sealer that block the sun’s UV rays, preventing those rays from turning the exposed surface of the wood gray. And it follows that the more pigment you use, the greater barrier to UV rays. So the darker the stain, the more UV protection from the sun.
Of the countless Edmonton area decks built each year, many go unprotected against the varying climates of Alberta. Summer brings intense UV rays, and with winter comes sleet and sometimes snow. If unstained, decks quickly turn dull and gray.
In order to alleviate this common problem, iPaint offers effective and efficient deck staining services. We provide our customers with a variety of finishes to choose from, ensuring that their deck matches the trim and siding of their home exactly. With everything from a rich, deep redwood to a light, beautiful harvest brown to choose from, we can match any color and shade you desire.
