Professional Wood Staining
Wood stains are in a category of their own. Different from paint, stains provide aesthetics & protection for wood surfaces such as decks, fences, siding, windows, doors, and more. Bring enhanced tone, texture & colour to your home’s exterior.
Why stain, and not paint? Unlike paint which covers the wood, stain brings out the natural beauty of the wood, preserving and protecting it. Stains will need occasional re-coating, but they will not peel or chip like paint can.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Staining wood actually penetrates into the wood causing a more permanent change to the colour of the wood, whereas painting wood sits on time and will gradually wear. staining also allows for the natural wood grain to show through. Painting usually needs to be re-coated every few years.
Stains and paint both have their pros and cons when it comes to changing any exterior wood. It ultimately depends on what look you are aiming to achieve for your space.
- Paint will offer more variety in terms of available colours and tones, as well as more drastic and pigmented colours, whether it be a pure bright white or a deep jewel tone.
- Stains, on the other hand, are available in fewer colours but will allow the wood grain to show through leaving a nice effect.
Both painted and stained decks can be easily painted over, however, a painted deck cannot be easily stained since the deck will need to be stripped, sanded and cleaned prior to being stained.
Either option can look great in your space, it is just a matter of determining the overall effect that you are trying to achieve.
On average, wood stain lasts between 2 to 3 years before beginning to fade. Proper preparation, cleaning and application of the stain will give allow for the stain to last the longest.
