Why Staining Your Wood Can Be More Preferable Than Painting It

Seattle wood staining

Installations made of natural wood can add a stunning, timeless look to your Seattle area home. Of course, you won’t be able to enjoy the unique natural beauty that wood offers if you opt to have it painted. Fortunately, you can beautifully show off your wood installations by getting a wood staining.

In fact, you might find that you prefer getting your Seattle home’s wood installations stained rather than painted. That’s not to say that painting the same installations is a bad move. It’s certainly not. It’s just that with a wood staining, you can enjoy a variety of benefits that a painting simply can’t offer — benefits such as . . .

Better Protection for Your Wood

Painting and staining services provide more than just an aesthetic purpose. They also help provide extra protection for your wooden installations. Whether you opt for a painting or a staining, your wooden installations will enjoy protection against water and wood-boring insects.

However, though, both services provide protection for your home, the degree of protection is not the same, and when it comes to sheer protectiveness, the difference is in staining’s favor. After all, a wood staining will penetrate deeply into your wood installations, helping to provide the best possible protection.

Emphasized Natural Beauty

While a coat of paint can certainly go a long way toward adding to the overall beauty of your Seattle home’s wood installations, you simply can’t beat the natural look that wood offers. With its unique patterns and wide variety of color options, wood can provide a stunning, one-of-a-kind look for your home.

So, although paint offers a stunning look all its own, if you’re particularly fond of wood’s natural beauty, painting will be the wrong choice for you. To show off your wood’s natural beauty, you need to help it stand out with routine wood staining work.

Simple Reapplications

Even the highest-quality painting or staining in the world isn’t going to last forever. As the sun, rain, and other elements — along with general age — wear away at this application through the years, it is bound to wear down, necessitating a reapplication.

For a coating of paint, this process can be something of a headache, as it requires rather involved scraping and prep work before the new coat can go on. For a wood staining, though, the process is much simpler. Since stain doesn’t flake and chip away, you can simply apply a fresh coat, making the unavoidable reapplication process simple and quick.
