Deck Stain Colors

(We recommend the following oil based wood preservative colors in semi-transparent tones (wood grain still visible). However if you already have or prefer to use a solid color (no visible wood) we can re-apply the same or similar color of your liking.)

Deck Stain Colors

Professional strength, deep penetrating wood protectant system which protects wood from water absorption and ultraviolet light.

Minimizes grain cracking, cupping, curling, warping, surface erosion, water absorption and is resistant to mildew, algae and moss. High solids, heavy duty formulation which enhances structural integrity, adds lubrication and flexibility while enhancing the natural warmth and beauty of new and aged wood.

Will not crack, peel or blister making maintenance an easy task to perform for extended wood protection.

8 popular colors and clear.

We highly recommend maintanence cleaning and staining to flat (horizontal) surfaces every two years. Verticals are recommened to be re-stained every four years.

NOTE: Color tones will vary slightly due to age of wood. Older wood will absorb more solids and color where newer wood will absorb less. We do want to wait about 3 months prior to staining a newly built deck in order to let the pressure treating chemicals to dry in the wood. Colors also need up to two months to fully cure.

Please see our: Tips for Maintaning your deck link.


Clear provides protection from moisture and elements but not UV Rays. The wood will still gray naturally under the coating.
