Wood is a timeless option that has the look and feel so many homeowners love for their outdoor areas. Its beauty and sustainability keep it at the top of the list for decks, pergolas, and fences. When properly maintained, wood can last and look beautiful for years. North Indy Pro Painters, in Indianapolis, IN, will happily help you keep your wooden deck or other outdoor structure in ideal condition.

Some of the benefits of choosing wood for these spaces include:
  • Natural Appearance: Wood has a warm, natural look that many people find appealing. The grain and texture of wood is challenging to duplicate with other materials.
  • Durability: With routine care and maintenance, you can enjoy your wooden deck or fence for many seasons. Some woods, like cedar or redwood, are naturally resistant to rot, decay, and insects, making them an ideal choice for outdoor use.
  • Versatility: Whether you prefer the look of stain or paint, we can help you achieve and maintain the aesthetic you desire to complement your home and landscape.


  • Power wash to remove dirt, loose paint, old stain, and mildew.
  • Scrape as needed.

  • Improves the look and appeal.

  • Increases your deck's lifespan by 7-10 years.
  • Protects the wood from heat damage and UV rays.


What's the best way to clean a wooden deck?
Start by sweeping the deck using a broom or leaf blower to remove debris.

Using a garden hose, spray the deck with water, wetting it thoroughly.

You can then apply a mild detergent mixed with warm water or a commercial deck cleaner, checking the manufacturer’s instructions for applications and how long to leave the cleaner on.

Scrub the deck: Use a scrub brush to agitate the cleaning solution and loosen dirt and grime.

Rinse the deck thoroughly to remove all traces of cleaning solution.

Let the deck air-dry completely before replacing furniture and other items.
How can I keep my wood deck from splintering?
The best ways to keep your wooden deck from splintering is to routinely clean and seal it. A quality sealer will protect your deck like wax protects a car’s finish. Water will bead up on a deck that is well-sealed.
How often should I clear coat my deck?
If you choose to have a clear coat instead of stain or paint, it should be done once a year.
How long does a stain last on a deck?
The amount of time varies depending on a wide variety of circumstances such as weather and use. A solid stain lasts 7-10 years and a semi-stain will last 3-5 years.
What is the full process for staining my deck?
We soft wash the area to remove dirt and mildew. We scuff sand, if necessary. Then, we stain the deck with the product of your choosing.
