How to Choose a Stain Color for Your Deck

There are a variety of deck stain colors to choose from. You may prefer a natural look, a shade that complements the color of your house, or a contrast that makes a bold design statement.

Transparent Deck Stains

If you prefer the natural look of your deck, a transparent stain might be right for you. The lighter color reflects sunlight and isn’t as hot to the touch. Your feet will thank you if you want to enjoy your deck barefoot.

But transparent stains offer little to no UV protection, which can cause the wood to fade or discolor more quickly. A transparent deck stain will show off the imperfections and discoloration in the wood. It’s also hard to tell when the seal over your stain is beginning to wear, exposing your deck to moisture damage if you don’t catch it in time.

Semi-Transparent Deck Stain

Applying a semi-transparent stain will still highlight your deck’s natural wood characteristics but hide more of the discoloration and imperfections. It may be a good choice for older decks. It will also better protect your deck from sun damage than transparent stains.

A semi-transparent stain allows you to match your deck color more closely to the exterior of your home. You should get approximately two years of life out of your stain before it needs to be reapplied.

Solid Deck Staining

Solid deck stain sits on top of the wood. Therefore, peeling is a concern if your deck is not maintained properly. However, it offers the greatest UV protection of all stain types.

Like paint, you have a wide variety of colors to choose for deck staining, so you can easily match your house or opt for a bold color statement.

Our Deck Sealing Process

Kimberly Painting's deck sealing process begins with skilled pressure washing, cleaning, and any necessary repairs. Nothing makes a deck look better or last longer than removing dirt, grime, and other contaminants that damage the wood.

Next, we coat the surface with one or more layers of a specialty finish that penetrates the wood for water-repellent, mildew-repellent protection. Our products and application process stand up to foot traffic, screen out UV rays for maximum life, and spotlight the character of the wood for an attractive result.

After the cleaning, repair, and deck sealing are complete, your fully refinished deck won't need restoration for many years under normal wear and tear.

Highly Recommend For Deck Staining!

We obtained 6 estimates for our exterior painting, deck painting and wood rot repair for our home in Cumming, GA and we hired Kimberly Painting. We went with them because Mark Sharpe, our Project Manager was very inclusive with the estimate. All colors could be changed and he was very detailed in what he thought we needed in wood rot repair.


The team worked diligently, they were polite, the products used were very high quality and you can tell they take great pride in their work. One of the leads, Jeffrey made sure we were happy before they left and Mark followed up to make sure we were happy as well. I highly recommend Kimberly Painting, we would definitely use them again for interior or exterior painting needs. Thanks, Mark and team!

Why Safety is a Priority

In addition to appearance and functionality, the safety of your family and guests makes proper maintenance a wise investment.

  • Though mold and mildew cannot be entirely avoided due to their organic nature, excess moisture and a lack of consistent cleaning allow them to thrive. Most homeowners don't realize that mold is slippery when wet, which becomes an unexpected safety hazard.
  • Mold is also a sign of inattention to maintenance as it is often accompanied by other problems such as graying, rotting, and splintering wood.
  • Like mold, wood is a natural organic. It swells and shrinks in response to the Atlanta area's daily and seasonal humidity levels. Without regular sealing and waterproofing, moisture swells cause nails to protrude dangerously and the wood to warp and crack.

Our sealing services are designed to protect the wood from fading, warping, splitting, peeling, and cracking to produce longer lasting results.

Whether you've got a brand new deck or just need maintenance, depend on Kimberly Painting for professional, lasting deck sealing, staining, and repair.
