Benefits of Wood Staining over Painting

Platinum Pro Painters – Calgary (, the leading painting and renovating company serving the Calgary, Okotoks, Airdrie, and Cochrane areas, is announcing the top benefits of considering wood stain over paint on both exterior and interior projects.

“With the warm summer weather finally here, many homeowners are looking at tackling both interior and outdoor projects,” says Chris White,owner of Platinum Pro Painters – Calgary. “The most popular outdoor projects are decks and fences, and the most popular material for these projects in the Calgary area is wood.”

White explains that wood staining is increasingly popular as an alternative to painting. While many property owners may think a can of paint is the best way to freshen up a deck or fence, staining is actually the preferable choice. Because staining does not chip and flake like paint does, there will be less of a need to repair and patch every spring and summer. On top of that, the natural grain of the wood remains visible and provides a more attractive look.

“Wood staining is also the most effective way to treat a wood garage door. Not only will a properly finished and maintained wood garage door last a long time, but because of the grain of the wood, no two garage doors will look alike,” White adds. “Our experience is that once a homeowner upgrades to garage door staining and sees the stunning results, they never convert back to a painted door.”

To echo the rugged and beautiful countryside in and around Calgary, many property owners use wood décor to beautify the interior of their homes. Not only does wood create a warm ambiance, but also an inviting mood. White notes that painting a room is clearly the most popular and obvious choice, but what many don’t consider is how eye-catching wood stain can be when used in the finishing touches. Whereas paint hides the true grain of door and window trim, stain adds beauty, elegance, rich colour, and lasting protection.

“When it comes to creating a first impression, nothing stands out like a stunning front door. Far superior to a painted front door, staining is easy to process and maintain, brings out the richness of wood, and gives a warm, homey feel,” White observes. “Some of the most popular areas that benefit from interior wood staining include kitchen and washroom cabinets. Staining staircases and railings is also a popular way to transform the look of a home and create a visual focal point.”

“Homeowners looking to spruce up their backyard decks or fences or enhance the rich natural wood colours of their homes should consider using a professional painting company with a proven track record of beautifying both interior and exterior spaces,” White concludes.
