Frequently Asked Questions About Deck Staining & Painting

What is Deck sealer2021-02-23T10:13:20-05:00

Deck sealer is typically a transparent coat that seeps deep into the wood and forms a clear film on the surface while maintaining the wood’s natural finish. By penetrating the wood, the sealer creates a protective layer that helps minimize water infiltration and lock out moisture.

What is Deck Paint2021-02-23T10:12:57-05:00

Deck paint can be either oil-based or acrylic — both are good products. Oil-based paint has the advantage of being slower-drying, which makes outdoor application easier and more mistake-free. Acrylic paints have less VOCs and clean up easier.

What is Solid Stain2021-02-23T10:12:34-05:00

solid stain is, essentially, a paint. Both are films that sit on the surface of a substrate. A penetrating stain differs from a solid stain entirely in that the product actually absorbs into the wood. … A solid stain will better accentuate the texture of the wood, so a rough surface likely calls for stain over paint.

What is a Semi-Sold Stain2021-02-23T10:12:12-05:00

This unique semisolid/semi-opaque finish masks the wood grain but allows texture to show through. While SemiSolid Stains provide greater opacity, they still highlight the natural texture of wood and provide a deep-penetrating, flat finish.

What is a Semi-Transparent Stain2021-02-23T10:11:51-05:00

SemiTransparent stains introduce delicate color to the wood’s surface. SemiTransparent stains contain the lightest pigmentation designed to accentuate natural wood grain and character. Review our opacity scale to determine your perfect balance of color and protection.

What is Transparent Stain or Clear Stain2021-02-23T10:11:30-05:00

Transparent Stain: A clear finish will show the most amount of wood grain and impact the color of your wood the least, allowing it to weather naturally.

The team at Image Painting painted many rooms inside our home. Their prep work was outstanding, the came on time and left our home clean at the end of each day, they completed the work on time, and they were flexible with changes I made along the way. Our home looks very fresh with its new paint!

I highly recommend using Image Painting. I received a few quotes for an exterior paint job on Capitol Hill. Image was responsive and I had been watching their crew work on a house down my street - happy with the progress. They did an excellent job and we are so happy with the results. We also loved the crew, who were so respectful, friendly and neat - they left our yard and work area cleaner than they found it. Image painted our front exterior and iron stairs. They scraped the old paint very thoroughly, applied primer and two coats. Both jobs look terrific and we would use them again.

Image prepped and painted our 100+-year-old row house on Capital Hill and did a wonderful job. They worked very hard to clean the considerable signs of old age with a thorough washing, scraping and patching; and finished up with a beautiful paint job.

Image did a fantastic job with our house. They did great work on updating the exterior carpentry in areas that needed it, and they had a great eye for detail in every square inch that they painted. We would absolutely call on them again for future painting needs, and have already recommended them to friends and neighbors.

Andrew and his workman made this so easy! We needed our 20+ year old deck re-stained, and they took care of everything! Power-wash, replaced a couple of boards, bought the stain, and even repaired a section we hadn't noticed until work started. We definitely recommend Image Painting!
