After cleaning I know some of you will stain and seal but how about painting . The deck is being rehabbed and will have a mix of new and old wood. What are the better or best paint options.
Paint won’t last, go solid stain
I don’t know man. Why not just light it up and get it done?
how long is that suppose to last with foot traffic and sun
light up your state
If going solid do a solid stain. Duckback 9600 series seems to last the longest
lol you’re never ever gonna let that one go, are you? Still makes me giggle every time
20+ year professional painter here and my advice is to use a solid color deck stain. I have painted decks, used semi-transparent stains, toners and solid color stain. The solid color is your best bet for decent longevity.
The downside is the solid hides the wood grain.
If it’s solid, it won’t matter what color the stain is. It’ll cover the wood and make it look very uniform.
I just wanted to make sure someone didn’t read this thread and think solid is the best way to go. I’d actually argue it’s usually not the best way to go.
I can’t. It might be the funniest thing I’ve ever seen on here.
What state are you in? In the north, some people put rock salt on wood decks they walk across in the winter. rock salt + metal shovels = new coat needed every year. Don’t care what brand of paint you tell me about, it is all the same.
guy never bent his knees or back and around the 310 mark you can see how he left the bottom section (about 1-3 inch) untouched. Maybe he went back and fixed it, but I wasn’t watching anymore after that.
The solid color stain is often the best choice for people. They don’t want to re-stain their decks every other year and the solid stain often provides more longevity than toners/transparent products.
Solid, Especially on an older deck.
Before getting too far into the debate, do you think water-based or oil-based stain is better to use?
you think or know solid stain will last longer than paint?
