Wood Painting and Staining
These are both excellent techniques for any client looking to extend the lifespan of their wooden features or furniture . Painting will cover the top of the wood , whilst staining penetrates the wood while treating it . Staining also preserves and protects the natural beauty of your wooden surface . Paint on the other hand will cover and hide any blemishes or the natural wood it self. Paint will also require extensive scrapping if it starts to peel and will require regular maintenance . Staining will also wear away and overtime will require re-coating . For more experts tips , give us a call today .
This is a sort of paint which is usually used to color wooden surfaces . These colored or stained finishes are not the same as varnish . They do not traditionally penetrate the pores of the wooden surface . In fact the finish will quickly disappear after it has deteriorated or been washed away by the elements . This option does however offer an extra layer of protection when placed over a varnished wooden surface . Include the variety of colors on offer and your imagination is the only limit . So to find out more , give us a call today .
Stain Over Paint
This is most certainly a possibility when it come to your wooden furniture or surfaces . We just ask our clients to keep in mind that this will create an ultra unique look. Not the original or authentic grained wood look . To achieve this you will still need to strip the paint and then apply the stain solution you have selected . It also depends what kind of base paint you want to use . As you can see while this can be a unique design choice , due to its somewhat complicated nature , it is best left to the professionals at Tucson Painters .
Which Lasts Longer
To answer this question effectively , one needs to take a couple of considerations into account . Generally painting does last longer than staining but again there are a couple of factors which could affect this . Firstly we need to consider what has been painted or stained. How often does it get used ? What look are you looking to achieve ? Which method will offer the solutions you require for your specific job ? Once we have helped you answer these questions and more , you can rest assured we will help you execute it precisely.
Which Is Easier ?
Rule of thumb tells us that staining is both easier to apply and a lot more cost effective per square meter than paint . Staining is also a lot easier to apply when just re-coating a surface or doing some touch-ups. One of the biggest reasons for this is that when you stain your selected surface , it does not need to be primed like one needs to do with painting . Staining is also more resistant to peeling and cracking . Now that you know a little more about it , give us a call and we will guide you in the right direction .
