At Prime Hues Painting LLC we specialize in refinishing, sealing, and staining.
Wood decks and fences need to be stained every 7 to 10 years depending on the thickness of your wood.
Redwood, red cedar and other resin-rich wood species have tannins, which weather to a grayish look. By treating the wood with oxalic acid we remove the tannin to expose the fresh wood and rejuvenate your deck.
In order to hide the imperfections of the aged wood, with excessive porosity and/or extreme color variances, we recommend using solid or opaque stain. Whereas if the wood is sound and has a nice grain, using semi- transparent or transparent stain would be more aesthetic option.
