Painting vs Staining a Deck
Painting your deck is a quick and easy way to update the look and one of the first recommendations we make when designing an outdoor living space. Here is a nice combination. Ampa Creative Home painted this deck gray and the metal rails black for a nice contrast.
Tips from Ted the Handyman and Fine Carpenter.
Often the question comes up: Should I paint my deck vs stain my deck? While both options offer protection of the wood and should increase the lifespan of the deck boards, it becomes a matter of preference. I will add that once you paint your deck, you can not go back and stain it. So, if you like both looks, consider staining the deck first, and then in a few years, change the look with deck paint.
