Exterior House Staining in Sausalito, CA

 Exterior House Staining in Sausalito, CA

Whenever home improvement topics come up, painting gets a lot of air time, and for good reason! It’s a key player in improving and enhancing just about any surface, inside or out.

But how about stain?

It’s too easy to neglect natural finishes, probably because they wear a little more gracefully than painted surfaces in a lot of cases. Ignoring faded stain is easier than ignoring chipped, peeling, or worn paint.

If we could leave you with one takeaway, it’s this: don’t miss out on routine staining and maintenance.

To differing degrees (depending on opacity), stain and sealer is an absolutely essential barrier for your home’s wood, locking out UV damage, insects, moisture, and more. When your stain breaks down, the wood is exposed to all sorts of threats and inevitable decay.

Showing your stained surfaces a little love is essential!

Staining Wood Shingles On a Sausalito Home

Our team just started the process of refinishing the exterior shingles on this Sausalito home. For now, these are in-progress pictures, so please stay tuned to our blog and social media to see the final results!

Here’s a quick peek at the process:

  • Complete project containment: as you can see, we masked and protected the surrounding surfaces and landscaping.

  • Next, we pressure washed the surfaces with a wood brightener. This product (a neutralizer) not only cleans the surface, but also improves the stain absorption.

  • Finally, we’ll stain the shingles.

Just like painting, staining requires a strict adherence to preparation procedures. This guarantees the best, and longest-lasting, results.
