A Guide to Deck Paints

The easiest paint to apply is an acrylic-based or water-based paint. These paints can easily go on your deck, and their dry time is faster than oil-based paint, which can take much longer to dry. Epoxy dries quickly, making applying it more challenging, as you have less time to paint a smooth coat. 

The best paint for a low-maintenance deck is water-based paints like acrylic or latex. These decking paints coat the surface of your deck so that deck maintenance tasks like sweeping and cleaning your deck are simple. Oil-based paints can be harder to clean, as they’re easier to stain.

Advantages of Staining Your Deck

Staining your deck has its own set of advantages, including:

  • Enhancing the natural beauty of the wood: Staining allows you to enhance the natural beauty of the wood. This means that the grain of the wood will be visible, which can be very attractive.

  • Flexibility in color: While paint comes in a wide range of colors, stain allows you to choose from a more limited range of colors. This means that you can choose a color that enhances the natural color of the wood.

  • Easy to apply: Staining is easy to apply and can be done by a DIY enthusiast.
