The salty sea air, moisture, heat, and sunlight in the San Diego climate dries and scours wood continually, so it's important that it is well-sealed. Decks, doors, windows, siding, garages, and other wood surfaces need to be stained and refinished more regularly here than in other climates.
San Diego wood staining and refinishing services are convenient for homeowners who want to keep up the exterior maintenance but don't want to do it themselves. It can really save a lot of time and effort to have a professional take care of it, and they are able to achieve long-lasting, quality results.
What's wonderful about refinishing your exterior wood structures is that you have the opportunity to change the color or shade whenever you want. Of course, it's a part of exterior maintenance that needs to be done, but why not take the opportunity to change the curb appeal once in a while? There are many beautiful stains in different colors and shades that you can choose. Or, you can always paint the wood in any color you like.
Our best advice would be to choose a stain and sealant that is resistant to UV rays. You'll get years more from your deck, siding, trim, doors, and other exterior wood structures. Here are some more staining & refinishing tips from our expert San Diego painting contractors at Maverick Painting.
About Deck Staining & Refinishing
Whether you have an exotic wood deck or a pressure treated lumber deck, the stain and finish can be renewed to bring back the beauty of the wood and protect it from the elements. A professional will know how to stain and refinish any type of wood deck properly. You may not know that staining techniques vary according to wood species because the absorbent properties differ between them. It's really easy to mess up the finish if the person doing the work is an amateur. For quality results, call a pro!
Window Staining & Refinishing
Even aluminum windows have wood casing and trim in most cases that can be stained and refinished or painted. Many homeowners have stained wood on the interior of the windows which adds natural qualities to the interior design. Stained or painted, windows should be refinished when the wood looses the luster or the color fades. Remember, the San Diego climate dries it out and wears off the finish much sooner than one would think, so it's important to keep an eye on the finish.
Don't forget to keep an eye on the caulking around the windows because the sealant also doesn't last as long as it does in other climates. Humidity is a problem here, which can work it's way indoors through window cracks. A good, long-lasting quality sealant should be used.
Door Staining & Refinishing
The doors on your home can be stained and refinished to protect the wood and add drama to the curb appeal. The front door needs to stand out so that it's obvious to visitors and delivery personnel as the main entry to the home. If you have more than one door facing the front of the property, it's best to highlight the main door and blend the other door in with the siding colors.
When people drive up to your home, they should be drawn to the front door. So choosing a stain or paint color that pops is a great idea for this particular door. Try something modern like terra cotta, red mahogany, sunflower, turquoise, or even black forest. Just don't be too matchy with the exterior trim and other wood surfaces or the front door will blend in.
Staining & Refinishing Garages
Whether it's just a wooden garage door or the siding and door of a detached garage, staining and refinishing can renew the curb appeal of this exterior area. Ask your San Diego painting contractor to help you choose a finish that looks great with the front door. These pops of contrast against the home siding can really add depth and interest to the exterior design of your home.
