Oil Based Finish

Oil based finishes provide deeper protection by penetrating the wood and adhering deep inside, however they tend to bubble during application, leaving an unattractive surface. If you live in a wet area or deal with long snow seasons, make sure to consider how this will affect the safety of your painted deck design plan. Water proof paint for a deck will protect your space from rot, mold, or mildew that is common in wet areas and is great for use on pool decks as well. Keep in mind that painted decks tend to be more slippery when wet, so it is important to choose non slip wood deck paint to prevent falls when it is raining. Old wood that is already damaged or crack will look better with a coat of stain rather than paint because it will hide the damage better. If your deck receives a lot of sun during the day, the most popular exterior paint colors for a deck in 2017 will be solid shades that provide complete coverage to protect your wood against UV damage. Another thing to consider is the makeup of the paint. The best coatings for decks tend to be water based finishes because they are easier to apply and will coat wet or dry surfaces.

Deck Stain Colors

Deck paint comes in many different types that are specific to each material and provide special protection to your surface. Wooden decks tend to wear down more easily than concrete, and different types of wood will have longer durability and strength than others. How to paint a wood deck will depend on what type of wood it is made out of, the finish it has received in the past and the condition of the deck. The best deck stain colors for wood and cedar tend to have shorter life spans than tropical woods like IPE decking. If your deck is made of natural American wood then it is a good idea to get paint with more protection or consider adding more sealer to at the end. Tropical woods on the other hand are very long lasting and do not need multiple deck coating during the paint job. Pressure treated wood, which is treated with chemicals to prevent it from rotting, is also more durable than natural wood so this type of decking will not need excessive protection. When choosing the best types of wood deck stain, look to see if the wood is cracked, chipped or flaking.
