Painting a Deck vs. Staining
Exterior paint and wood stain can be used to protect a new wooden deck, or an existing deck, from weather-related damage and moisture. Deck paint and deck stain finishes vary in terms of applications, appearance, cost, durability and maintenance
View ourQuick Reference Product Guide to select the right product for your project. Then calculate how much product you will need to complete your project.
The example below is based on a deck 6m x 5m:
- Calculate your decking area, 6m x 5m = 30m²
- Divide 30m² by coverage rate^, (10m²/L) = 3L
- You need 2 coats, 2 x 3 = 6L
- 6L is required to achieve optimum coverage
*Coverage rate can vary between products and can be found on the can or product data-sheet.
