James River Remodeling's Deck Staining Procedure

Our tried and true deck staining process is simple, but taking the time in the details is what makes our team stand out among the competition. Here is our process:

  • Inspect the deck for rotted areas and replace the boards as needed.
  • Sand down rough areas that can break off and cause splinters.
  • Clean the deck thoroughly with a pressure washer and a deck cleaner.
  • Allow the deck to dry completely.
  • Apply a coat of premium deck stain.
  • Allow the stain to dry completely.
  • Apply a second coat of stain.
  • After 24 hours in dry conditions, your deck will be ready to enjoy!


What Can Go Wrong with DIY Deck Staining?

The team at James River Remodeling often gets phone calls to finish deck staining projects that went wrong. We've seen it all!

Common problems to watch for when staining a deck include:

  • Not cleaning the deck thoroughly before staining can lead to uneven coverage.
  • Not allowing the deck to dry completely before applying the stain, which can cause it to bubble or blister.
  • Applying the stain too thickly can cause it to peel or crack.
  • Not applying a second coat of stain, which can lead to uneven color and fading.

When in doubt, call (757) 216-9909 to get help with staining your deck from the start or taking over if you bit off more than you could chew! Either way, we've got you (and your deck) covered.
