Fence and Deck Staining in York Region

Specialists in Staining and Painting Decks

Managers at University First Class Painters understand how important the appearance of a deck is to the overall property. Two decks are rarely similar; they often include unique elements such as rails or a lattice, but every deck has in common is the care they require to remain even and polished as time passes. UFCP managers always recommend planning deck maintenance ahead of time to keep your deck looking new.

Ensuring surfaces are prepared

Before any deck job begins, your manager will make sure that every part of the surface has been properly prepared for the stain being applied. This can include any of the following prep work:

  • Priming (only for painting)
  • Scraping
  • Sanding
  • Caulking
  • Power washing
  • Hand washing

The staining process

Once the surface has been prepped for the work, the manager will choose between a semi-transparent or solid stain. For a semi-transparent stain, the application process will largely involve brushes (but can include rollers), For solid stains, the process can include brushing, spraying and rolling techniques.

Deck Maintenance after the job

As you probably know, it can be difficult to keep the surface of your deck looking as good as new for long after the job has been completed. Decks are rained on, snowed on, walked on, and often have heavy objects placed on top of them or moved across them. To deal with the stress that decks undergo, your UFCP representative will suggest our personalized deck maintenance schedule.

Deck Maintenance Schedule

The UFCP maintenance schedule allows for you to prearrange the future care of your deck when your work is being done. The maintenance program often includes the following:

  1. Complete cleaning and recoating of floors, steps, and tops of railings every 1-2 years
  2. Cleaning and recoating of posts, deck skirts, and the remainder of the deck every 3-5 years

The deck maintenance schedule is a worry-free way to ensure that your deck will be cared for for years to come. Ask your UFCP representative about it at the time of the estimate or contact us via email to sign up.
