Reasons for Wood Staining
Properly applied stain can make cheap woods look expensive. It can bring out the natural beauty of the grain in woods that previously looked ordinary. Talk to Painting Highlands Ranch about the range of colors and types of stain that would work best with the wood you have in your home or office. Cosmetic factors alone would be enough to opt for wood staining but when professionally done stain also brings other benefits. Wood will naturally rot if it is not protected and stain can prevent that decay. If your wood is subjected to sunshine it will fade or discolor and the correctly chosen stain will also prevent that. Where wood is subjected to moisture or water contact then stain will protect it and again prevent rot. Oil based stains seep deep into the wood itself reaching far further than surface coverings and giving a long lasting protection that leaves your wood looking wonderful.
