Revitalize Your Stairs with ProPinceau: A Restoration Guide

Stairs are often the focal point of our homes, drawing attention due to their strategic position and daily use. However, over time and with wear and tear, they can lose their shine and show signs of deterioration. At ProPinceau, we understand the importance of keeping your stairs in perfect condition. Today, we offer you a comprehensive guide to bring your damaged stairs back to life with our restoration expertise.

Step 1: Sanding the Stairs

The first step of any successful restoration is sanding. This crucial step removes old layers of paint or varnish, smooths the wood surface, and prepares the stairs for the following steps.

Why is sanding important?

  • Elimination of imperfections: Sanding removes scratches, stains, and other surface imperfections.

  • Surface preparation: A smooth surface is essential to ensure optimal adhesion of the subsequent restoration products.

Step 2: Restoration and Repair

Once sanding is complete, it's time to move on to the necessary restoration and repairs. We meticulously inspect each step and riser to detect cracks, holes, or other damage.

Using Latex to Conceal Defects

To conceal defects and gaps in the wood, we use high-quality latex filler. Latex is a flexible and durable material that is perfect for stair restoration.

  • Advantages of latex:

  • Flexibility: Adapts to the natural movements of the wood.

  • Ease of application: Can be easily applied and smoothed for a flawless finish.

  • Durability: Offers a lasting finish that withstands daily wear and tear.

Step 3: Applying Oil-Based Primer

Before moving on to painting, it is essential to apply an oil-based primer. This product seals the wood, evens out the surface, and ensures better adhesion of the finishing paint.

Why an oil-based primer?

  • Improved adhesion: The oil-based primer penetrates deeply into the wood, providing a solid base for the finishing coats.

  • Protection: Protects the wood against moisture and temperature variations, thereby extending the lifespan of your stairs.

Step 4: Finishing Paint with Water-Based Acrylic Urethane

The final step in the restoration process is applying the finishing coats of paint. At ProPinceau, we use water-based acrylic urethane resin paint. This type of paint offers several advantages:

  • Durability: Acrylic urethane is known for its resistance to wear, scratches, and impacts.

  • Professional finish: Provides a smooth and uniform finish with a satin or glossy shine, according to your preferences.

  • Safety: The water-based formula makes this paint less toxic and more environmentally friendly, while also being safe for your family.
