Kumeu Deck Restoration Staining

We found a dry and sunny day to complete this Kumeu deck staining job. The stain we used is Dulux Pine our door deck stain. It took us half a day two men to strip and polish the deck, after that, we blew away the dust; Another half a day we finished the staining. The full colour will show after some exposure to sunshine.

How we clean and apply a deck coating.

  1. deck cleaner with a stiff-bristled scrubbing brush or broom. This ensures the timber is clean of dust, dirt, wax, grease, tannins and oils before coating.
  2. Once dry, apply the coating liberally along the entire length of the boards. Aim to coat 2-3 boards at a time. Allow to dry and apply a second coat.

If we switching from oil to a water-based coating, we test the suitability for re-coat by sprinkling the surface with water. If the water absorbs, the timber can be re-coated with a water-based coating. If the water beads on the surface, further weathering/or sanding is required to remove the coating.

We prepare your timber properly before is essential for a long-lasting beautiful finish. Goldenland Painters always work along the length of the boards and maintain a wet edge. We tried to prepare and coat timber out of direct sunlight by working on a different side in the morning and afternoon. We use a brush rather than an applicator to coat the end grain of your deck, in between boards and cut in at the closest possible point to the house.
