Decks & Fencing Overview
Homeowners have various options to choose from and many things to consider before building a complex structure like a deck or fence. Selecting the right contractor to paint your fence or deck can make all the difference in the world. Manufacturers of the best paint can provide warranties, but it still requires the proper preparation, application, and aftercare. This is especially true for a fence or deck which needs to sealed, painted, or treated on all sides of the wood to ensure it reaches it's maximum lifespan.
Unfortunately, there's no simple way to paint or stain a deck. They are typically complex in it's structure, so it takes more time than most home or business owners have. Express Remodeling has painting contractors with years of experience painting decks, and all projects are completed in a timely manner without sacrificing quality.
We make sure to treat all sides, of every piece of wood, to ensure that your deck does not take damage from things like rain, snow, or heat. The suns ultraviolet radiation will discolor your wood and break down it's natural glue, which is essential to holding your fibers together. This can lead to further problems like moisture getting inside the wood causing it to twist, wrap, and crack. There are many projects around a home that can be done without hiring a professional. However, with something complex like a deck, we recommend seeking advice from several experienced companies who can at least get you in the right direction.
Unlike a deck, a fence can easily be painted without much experience. A big reason home or business owners choose to hire a professional is the amount of time it takes to paint a fence. If you have a smaller fence, than it might be a good idea to paint it yourself. However, if you have a large fence, like one that surrounds your entire property line, it could take weeks or even months depending on the size of your lot.
When painting or staining your fence you need to take into consideration that it's always going to be exposed to the weather.
