A wooden deck (or wooden patio) needs to be re-stained and sealed every few years, especially in San Diego where your deck gets hit with lots of heat and ozone from the sun. If you don’t take care of your deck, the sun could warp and age the wood, drastically decreasing the life of your deck or patio.
Most homeowners can pick up a nice new stain and sealant at their local hardware store, roll up their sleeves, and do the job themselves over the course of a day. Staining and sealing a deck isn’t a particularly difficult job, but it can be time-consuming, especially if you free time is limited.
You might want to consider saving yourself the hassle of staining and sealing your deck and just hire a professional to do the job for you. Of course I have a stake in your decision. Best-Rate Repair provides staining and sealing services, and we would love to help you save precious time during the weekends. My services aside, there are good reasons to call in the professionals.
Think about how valuable your time is and then consider the cost a professional would charge to stain and seal a deck (the cost will depend on the size of your deck or patio). If you have ample time on your hands or enjoy working on your home, then this can be a fun and rewarding DIY project. If you would rather sit back and watch the baseball game on TV, go kayaking in the ocean, or spend time outdoors with your family, then it’s probably worth the small cost to bring in a professional team.
Best-Rate Repair works quickly and efficiently. We can provide an even, beautiful stain and seal the wood up tight so that it resists damage from sun, water, and the occasional ice. We can also help you choose the right stain and sealant for your wood.
Personally, I often think hiring an expert is a good choice, especially if it allows you to spend more time doing the things that you love or with the people who are most important to you. Whether you stain your deck yourself or hire Best-Rate Repair, I hope you have a truly wonderful summer!
