While most people are under the impression that deck painting last long, we can confirm that this is not true. However, Deck Painting does offer more customization then Deck staining. This can be matching the color scheme of your home giving your home that look you have wanted for so long. Let’s look at some of the pros and cons of Deck Painting.




  • Color Options

As we said above. Almost any color that you can think of can be applied to you deck.


  • Hide Flaws

Since this is painting over your deck, if your deck has any flaws will be hidden from the paint. This also applies to decks that suffer from being old and weathered.




  • Moisture

Your deck will expand and contract depending on the season. This is something that cannot be prevented. When this happens, it allows moisture to get trapped under the paint between the wood. Causing a moisture trap.


  • One Time Choice

Trying to go back to a different deck stain can be a daunting task. In some cases, its less expensive to have a new deck built then to have the paint removed from the deck to apply a different type of deck stain.


  • No More Wood Look

We added this to the con list because of just how beautiful wood is. While this is a personal preference once a deck is painted, you will no longer get to enjoy the natural beauty of your wood deck.
