Staining plays a vital role in the overall longevity of a wood deck or fence for many years.
With the unpredictable weather in Kansas City, it is a good idea to stain or seal your wood deck and/or fence every 3-5 years. This will ensure that the wood is healthy and preserved to keep it from rotting.
With the multiple stain colors on the market, applying a stain to your fence or deck allows for you to put your own personal touch on your investment. Some people appreciate the natural beauty of wood and do not wish to stain their wood. If this happens to be the case, then a clear sealant should be added in place of the stain.
