Frequently Asked Questions About Deck Staining & Painting
Deck sealer is typically a transparent coat that seeps deep into the wood and forms a clear film on the surface while maintaining the wood’s natural finish. By penetrating the wood, the sealer creates a protective layer that helps minimize water infiltration and lock out moisture.
Deck paint can be either oil-based or acrylic — both are good products. Oil-based paint has the advantage of being slower-drying, which makes outdoor application easier and more mistake-free. Acrylic paints have less VOCs and clean up easier.
A solid stain is, essentially, a paint. Both are films that sit on the surface of a substrate. A penetrating stain differs from a solid stain entirely in that the product actually absorbs into the wood. … A solid stain will better accentuate the texture of the wood, so a rough surface likely calls for stain over paint.
This unique semi–solid/semi-opaque finish masks the wood grain but allows texture to show through. While Semi–Solid Stains provide greater opacity, they still highlight the natural texture of wood and provide a deep-penetrating, flat finish.
Semi–Transparent stains introduce delicate color to the wood’s surface. Semi–Transparent stains contain the lightest pigmentation designed to accentuate natural wood grain and character. Review our opacity scale to determine your perfect balance of color and protection.
Transparent Stain: A clear finish will show the most amount of wood grain and impact the color of your wood the least, allowing it to weather naturally.
