Painting and staining your deck and fence protects the wood from twisting, warping, and the harsh elements here in South Carolina. Most decks are made of wood, which can start to look worn out and weathered after just a few years of exposure to the elements. Deck stain can make a big difference in the way your deck looks, but it also offers an added layer of protection against rain, wind, and the harsh rays of the sun. When handled properly, a coat of stain on your deck will preserve the wood while improving the overall appearance.

Common deck & fence painting and staining problems.

Following A Precise Process

The customer’s goal, as well as the current state of the wood, will determine which type of stain will be best suited for the surface. Whether you have recently had a new deck or fence installed and want to make sure it looks great and is built to last, or you have an aging deck or fence that needs attention, you can rely on us to provide the deck and fence staining services that bring about great results.  Applying a quality sealer or stain every 2 years is the most inexpensive way to a long lasting deck or fence. Leaving decks untreated can be very dangerous as the wood surface can deteriorate in just a few years.


During our deck and fence staining process, we make sure to take care of any blemishes or trouble spots that are affecting the wood surface. We’ll clean the deck or fence by pressure-washing away any dirt and grime, as well as repair any holes or rotting that could affect the outcome of the staining application.  Staining over the top of a dirty deck or fence will create unappealing spots where the stain settles. Holes and blemishes must be repaired prior to starting the process as well. Once your deck or fence surface is properly prepared, we’ll complete the staining quickly and accurately, leaving you with a beautiful and lasting result.


Stains will be hand brushed on most decks and can be sprayed or hand brushed on fences.  The application method will depend on a few different variables. Semi-transparent stains, toners, solid stains and timber oils are used on the surfaces to enhance, protect and beautify the wood.
