Choosing the Right Stain The first step in any wood staining project is choosing the right stain for your needs. With so many options available on the market, it can be overwhelming to know which one is best for your particular project. Our team of experts at Fry's Painting can help you navigate the many options available, from oil-based to water-based stains, transparent to opaque finishes, and everything in between. We'll work with you to determine the best stain for your specific wood surfaces, taking into account factors such as the type of wood, its current condition, and the desired look you want to achieve.

Preparing the Wood Surface Before applying any stain, it's crucial to properly prepare the wood surface to ensure optimal results. This may involve sanding down rough spots or imperfections, cleaning the surface to remove any dirt or debris, and applying a wood conditioner to help the stain penetrate evenly. Our team at Fry's Painting will take care of all the necessary prep work, using professional techniques to ensure a smooth and even surface for the stain to adhere to.

Applying the Stain Once the wood surface is properly prepped, it's time to apply the stain. Whether you prefer a bold, rich color or a more natural finish, our experts at Fry's Painting have the skills and expertise to achieve the look you desire. We'll carefully apply the stain using professional techniques to ensure an even coat and consistent color throughout. Depending on the type of stain used, multiple coats may be necessary to achieve the desired depth of color and level of protection.

Protecting and Maintaining the Finish After the stain has been applied and allowed to dry, our team at Fry's Painting will finish the job by applying a protective topcoat to seal in the color and protect the wood surface from everyday wear and tear. This topcoat will help maintain the beauty of your stained wood surfaces for years to come, making regular maintenance and cleaning a breeze.
