Deck Staining & Sealing
Staining, sealing, and upkeeping your deck are projects that Taskers can support from prep work through clean up. Depending on what you need done, deck services might include:
Making minor repairs/resurfacing
When you need to get your deck treated, you can also get help with removing and replacing deck furniture. Consider a deck staining and sealing task a one-stop shop to get the whole project done.
Note: If your project requires a licensed contractor, confirm your Tasker has the licenses needed when describing the job.
How it works
Frequently asked questions
Taskers who seal, stain and restore decks have average rates starting at about $30 per hour, although prices vary from Tasker to Tasker. You can browse and select a Tasker near you based on reviews, skills, and rates. Once you’ve agreed on details and after the task gets completed, you’ll pay and leave your review right through TaskRabbit.
TaskRabbit’s mission is to help you get the job done quickly and get on with your life. The exact time frame depends on the scope of your job and your Tasker’s availability. Deck staining and sealing is a project best suited for milder weather, so keep that in mind as you plan. You should also plan for time between pressure washing and staining and sealing so the deck can dry out.
Stain adds color to natural wood and protects against UV damage. Sealant protects against moisture damage. You can opt to do one or both treatments, but they’re typically combined. This process helps prolong the life of your natural wood deck, and it’s advised that you do this treatment once a year particularly in areas with more sun exposure and/or moisture.
