When it comes to caring for and enhancing your deck, there are typically three goals:
Keep it beautiful
Protect the surface
Enjoy the most value possible for your maintenance dollar
Semi-transparent and translucent stains are typically the go-to option for achieving these goals, especially thanks to the incredible variety of products that can bring just about any vision you might have to life.
But did you know that you can also coat your deck with an elastomeric paint? And, we can help.
What Are the Benefits of a Solid Coating for Your Deck?
Endless color options! As we mentioned above, there are a lot of deck coating options, but solid coatings open up a whole other world of possibilities.
Easier maintenance! Elastomeric paint creates a smooth surface, making routine cleaning (and even gentle pressure washing) simple.
Surface protection! Yes, semi-transparent stains offer protection, but opacity shields against UV damage and moisture even more effectively. You don’t have the natural look that a semi-solid or translucent stain offers, but you do have a durable barrier.
Longer-lasting finish, depending on a variety of environmental factors and level of use. In fact, elastomeric paint can last 2-3 times as long while costing the same!
Just bear in mind that once you commit to a solid product, it’s very difficult to reverse the process. We would recommend talking to us about your specific style, maintenance, and budget goals before making a decision. Our team can walk you through the process, ensuring that you are left with the perfect solution for your needs.
Is a Solid Coating the Right Choice for Your Deck?
Semi-transparent stains are beautiful when your deck is in good condition, but if the surface is uneven or you’re trying to cover a previous coating, a solid stain or elastomeric coating is likely a good option for you. Factors like existing sun and rain damage on your deck boards can cause your new stain to take a lighter or darker look in places, adding to the difficulty level of using a semi-transparent or translucent stain over a worn surface.
Solid stains and elastomeric coatings are extremely forgiving, making them a perfect solution for bringing new life to an older deck.
A Closer Look At Our Deck Painting Process
Here at Nash Painting, details are everything, and this starts with thorough preparation:
