(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.)
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.
Clear provides protection from moisture and elements but not UV Rays. The wood will still gray naturally under the coating.
Cedar is a light almost natural color for wood. Though don't be suprised, first application is really dark!
Gold has a tone to really make the deck stand out. It's a lighter color but really makes a statement.
California Cedar is a little darker brown tone. This is our most popular color. It blends nicely with brick as well as other style/colors of siding.
Russet is a brown with redish tones. Very beautiful against a brick house background.
Butternut is the darker brown tone. This is also a very popular color in our area.
Slate Gray gives a colored gray tone as if the wood has naturally aged. While still providing protection from natures elements and UV Rays.
Cedar Slate is as it sounds, a mix of Cedar and Slate. This gives a color tone of grays with brown mixed in.
Sandstone is a mix of Slate and Gold. This gives more brown over the gray to the color tone.
For Solid color stains, please refer to Sherwin Williams Exterior Deck Stain Colors and select opacity: Solid. Please whatever you choose, Do Not put Paint on your deck, use an exterior stain formulated for pressure treated lumber.
