Are you thinking of using deck paint to for your new or existing deck?

In this article we explore 5 reasons why polyurethane decks, like OmegaDeck, trump deck paint as the smarter option for your deck upgrade or replacement.

Transforming your deck into an outdoor oasis requires careful consideration of materials. Among the options, polyurethane coating stands out as a superior choice over traditional deck paint.

While deck paint might seem like a quick fix, it is not. Deck paint is unlikely to stand the test of time and chances are it won’t be long before you are wanting to fix it or replace it.

However, a polyurethane coating, like our OmegaDeck, offers a myriad of benefits that elevate both the aesthetics and longevity of your outdoor space.

5 Reasons Why Polyurethane Decks Trump Deck Paint

1. Durability

One of the foremost advantages of polyurethane coating is its unparalleled durability. Unlike deck paint, which can chip, peel, or fade over time due to exposure to harsh weather conditions and foot traffic, polyurethane forms a robust protective layer on the surface of your deck that is built to last for years in the toughest weather conditions. This layer resists scratches, stains, and UV damage, ensuring that your deck maintains its pristine appearance for years to come.

Our OmegaDeck utilizes a waterproofing membrane made from Polyurethane, a material known for its exceptional durability. Polyurethane is so tough that it is used as tires on mining trucks. Thus, supporting the weight of vehicles carrying up to 350 tons of ore over sharp, broken rocks. The top coats used in OmegaDeck’s system are durable enough to be used on garage floors, even with vehicles being driven on them.

The OmegaDeck 4 Step Process (see below) ensures your deck will last for decades longer than any other deck coating product, including deck paint.

In fact, we are so confident in our work and product that OmegaDeck comes with a 20-year Deck Waterproofing Warranty!

2. Weather Resistance

Your deck is subjected to the whims of Mother Nature throughout the year, from scorching heat to freezing cold to an abundance of rain and everything in between.

Our OmegaDeck polyurethane coatings offers superior weather resistance compared to deck paint, effectively shielding your deck from moisture, sunlight, and temperature fluctuations.

This resilience helps prevent warping, cracking, and rotting, thereby extending the lifespan of your deck and reducing the need for frequent maintenance.

3. Enhanced Aesthetics

OmegaDeck provides a variety of coating options to beautify your deck. Unlike deck paint, polyurethane coatings accentuate the visual appeal of your deck, creating a luxurious and inviting outdoor space.

4. Low Maintenance

Maintaining a pristine deck shouldn’t be a time-consuming chore. A polyurethane coating, like OmegaDeck, requires minimal maintenance compared to deck paint.

Thanks to its durable and long-lasting protective layer, routine cleaning with mild soap and water is usually all that’s needed to keep your polyurethane-coated deck looking its best.

Additionally, unlike deck paint, which may require periodic touch-ups or reapplication, our polyurethane coating maintains its integrity for years without the need for frequent re-coating.

5. Cost-Effectiveness

While the upfront cost of polyurethane coating may be slightly higher than deck paint, its long-term cost-effectiveness quickly becomes apparent.

By reducing the need for frequent repainting, repairs, and replacements, polyurethane coating saves you money (and stress) in the long run. Additionally, the extended lifespan of your deck means fewer expenses associated with maintenance and upkeep over time, making polyurethane coating a wise investment for your outdoor space.

When it comes to upgrading or replacing your deck, polyurethane coating emerges as a far superior choice over deck paint. Its unmatched durability, weather resistance, enhanced aesthetics, low maintenance requirements, and cost-effectiveness make it the ideal solution for transforming your outdoor space into a stylish and enduring retreat.

So why settle for ordinary when you can elevate your deck with the extraordinary benefits of polyurethane coating?
