Painting your deck is one of the most effective ways to extend its life. A fresh coat of paint is also an excellent method to boost your property’s curb appeal. Consider these helpful ideas if you plan to paint your deck in 2023.
Clean Your Deck Before Painting It
It would be best to clean your deck before painting it to get the ideal effects. You can use a power washer or a scrub brush with an appropriate cleaning solution. If you use a pressure washer, be sure not to get the nozzle too close to the surface.
Make Any Necessary Repairs Before Painting
If your deck is not in good condition and needs maintenance, you should complete any repairs before you’re done. For example, painting over a deck with damaged wood boards can create an undesired effect. Fill any gaps in your deck with high-quality putty before painting. You can also use sandpaper to make the surface pleasant and smooth.
Your Deck Should Be Dry Before Painting It
After you’ve finished cleaning your deck, make sure to let it dry. You should never apply paint to wet wood. Your wood can easily be exposed to decay and mold growth.
Decide Between Painting Or Staining
If you paint or stain your deck, it will protect it from weather elements and increase your unit’s lifespan. When painting your deck, you have more color options; paint lasts longer and is easier to clean. However, staining your deck is a more accessible and less expensive option.
