While we don’t often refinish furniture as a standalone service, this particular client had already invited us to complete a number of other painting projects around their Del Mar home. Refinishing projects too, including staining a gorgeous garage door.
So, when they asked about staining their wooden outdoor furniture, we were happy to help. Raul, our residential “stain wizard” worked his magic once again.
The pictures tell the majority of the story here! Be sure to click through to get a full perspective, and then we have a few tips and ideas for you below.
Is it beautiful? Absolutely, and that’s worth a lot in itself. But stain offers a few more practical benefits:
UV-resistance. Our San Diego weather is a joy, but all that sunshine is tough on your wood surfaces. Stain is like sunscreen for your wood, letting all that natural warmth soak in but repelling the harmful rays that fade and deteriorate.
Moisture-resistance. Left unprotected, wood falls prey to moisture very, very quickly. This is how rot sets in, which then can only be repaired by investing in more substantial wood repair, replacement, and filling.
Pest-resistance. Just like the rest of us, pests are happy to find a path of least resistance. Unfinished wood offers an easy entrance, especially once it’s compromised by decay from the other elements working against it.
It depends, but we typically recommend refinishing every 2 – 3 years. Surfaces can sometimes go much longer. The key is to really monitor and maintain, rather than just wait until the wood is in desperate need of attention. If you wait too long you’ve made it vulnerable to all the threats we listed above which negates the benefits of staining in the first place.
