Clean Your Space
Once you’ve decided that you want to paint your outdoor space, you need to decide the best way to clean it. You don’t want to paint over dirt or dust. Be sure to sweep your space and wipe away all debris from the surface you want to paint. It is also important to pressure wash the area after you have swept the debris away. This will prepare the surfaces for a fresh coat of paint or stain.
Choose Your Paint or Stain
Choosing a paint or stain is so much more than just choosing what aesthetic you like best. Stains do a great job of showing off the grain of wood and the unique characteristics of a paver. They are also available in many colors. However, it is important to think about the work that goes into staining and maintaining a stained fence or pavers. Stain does not last as long as paint does and when you have to reapply it, you have to sand it before you reapply it. Painting will give the items in your outdoor space a longer lasting protection against the outside elements. However, painting tends to be a bit messier than staining.
