Sometimes back, people were using oil-based stains on their decks which unfortunately suffered a lot of drawbacks. Such products were not effective at protecting decks against harsh UVs and the surfaces would become fragile sooner. But we are promising you coatings that will never degrade, wear out, or necessitate re-application anytime soon.
Thanks to modern technology we are now offering effective decking solutions in form of acrylic coatings which are water-based. There are no downsides associated with these coating options and all they do is give good looks to your deck and make it last longer.
Water-based coatings have a flexible film which is UV-resistant hence the ideal antidotes for issues that are caused by oil-based coatings. The good thing is that they are suitable for any type of wooden deck including wood composite.
Types of acrylic coatings
You can choose from three options: semitransparent, wood restoration, and opaque acrylic coatings.
Semi-transparent acrylic coatings: These are slightly pigmented and are designed to change or maintain the deck color without concealing the texture or the grain. They are highly resistant to water and they consist of certain ingredients which can repel mold and mildew. Their lifespan is roughly one and a half years.
Opaque acrylic coatings: They are commonly known as solid color acrylic stains and contain denser pigments than those of the semi-transparent coatings. Their intense color may hide wooden deck grains but their protection against UV rays is very high, not forgetting their greater durability.
Wood restoration coatings: These coatings are made specifically for highly damaged decks. Their thickness is superb can cover up cracks and crevices of 0.25” deep. They are also slip-resistant.
