Paint or Stain Outside Structures

Paint or Stain Outdoor Structures


Paint or stain your outdoor structures to protect them from the elements such as heat, cold, snow and moisture.

Leaving your deck, fence, shed, pergola, gazebo unprotected can lead to very costly repairs in the future as the damage to the wood can not only look bad but can cause it to be structurally unsafe.

The team at EHR will work with you to choose a paint or stain that is tailored to your taste and style, and most importantly, protect your investment. We only use the highest quality paints and stains that will seal and protect the wood from our harsh Ontario weather. Professionally stained or painted wood will not only enhance the appeal of your property but also create an environment for you and your family to enjoy for many years.

Paint or Stain Sheds

Properly preparing any outdoor wooden structure is vital to ensure proper adhesion of the paint or stain. Our skilled team will prepare all surfaces by pressure-washing them to get rid of all dirt, grime, mildew, and mold. Once the wood surfaces have been cleaned it may be necessary to sand or do mild repairs before painting, and we take care of all of that for you. Next, we will protect and cover all objects around the structure such as your home, walkways, and gardens.

From start to finish you will be kept up to date with the progress of the project from our site manager. You will be able to ask questions and get updates on completion times, and any concerns that might arise, especially given these projects typically happen outdoors and we must deal with various weather issues. We pride ourselves on our customer service and that is why we put such focus on our communications with our customers.


We get asked this question all the time and we would be more then happy to discuss this during the free estimate and consultation. We can discuss then whether staining or painting is best for your project. While both will do a great job and protect natural wood surfaces, there are other important factors to consider. At EHR we have have the experience and expertise to explain these factors to you.

Wood Staining

Paint or Stain deck

Wood Stain fills the wood pores, creating a protective film that allows the natural grain pattern and any cracks in the wood to show through. This creates a beautiful natural look.

Beautifying stained natural wood surfaces are a unique way to create aesthetic appeal, reflect your style and protect your investment. Professionally stained wood is a perfect way to add modern style to your home. Wood staining and finishing creates warmth and enhances the appearance of wood grains, which makes old wood look ageless and sophisticated.

Stains come in Solid, Semi-Transparent and Transparent, and our team at EHR will work with you to select the right stain based on the type of wood, age and condition of the structure and the overall theme of your property.

Wood Painting

Painting your deck, fence or shed will seal the wood, create a beautiful glossy surface, and hide any imperfections or cracks. As opposed to staining, painting offers endless variety, from eye-popping colours to more subdued rustic looks.

Paint also lasts longer and is, on average, more durable than staining. Paint provides the best defence for your wood against UV and moisture damage and is much easier to maintain.

Our experienced team at Eastern Hills Renovations and Repairs will help you select a shade or colour theme that best compliments your landscaping or the architectural style of your property.
