There are a few factors that can determine the cost of a deck staining Saint Marys project. When trying to get an estimate, you need to take into consideration the labor costs of the deck contractor that you will hire, the stain that you will use and the size of your deck. Most homeowners tend to pay between $550 and $1,100 for a Saint Marys deck staining project, depending on the size of the deck and the stain used. Stain can be bought at approximately $20 per gallon for low-grade stain and can go as high as $120 per gallon for high-grade stain. A gallon of stain can cover 200 to 300 square feet depending on the thickness of the application. So, a regular deck that has a size of 500 square feet will need approximately 2 gallons of stain. That can cost around $40 up to $240 depending on the grade of stain used. Other materials needed that can have an impact on the cost of your deck staining Saint Marys project may include brushes and tapes that are around $10 to $20.
