What are the advantages of staining a deck?
Staining a deck comes with a number of advantages, including:
- It prevents rotting by sealing out moisture, fungus, termites and other agents of decay, making it last longer.
- It saves it from wear and tear due to solar radiation.
- Staining your deck protects it against heavy foot traffic — an especially important consideration in areas that are common walking routes or that see lots of scooting chairs.
- Stain preserves the appearance and natural beauty of wood, bringing out the grain and keeping it colorful and bright through the years.
