The natural colour of an exterior wood deck or structure is beautiful, especially when first built. To keep it looking great, wood should be treated to protect it from water and sun damage. Wood stains and sealants have the ability to improve wood’s natural beauty by enhancing the pattern and texture while simultaneously giving it a much needed layer of protection from the elements.
Choosing the right colour can be tricky. On one end of the colour spectrum, clear sealants will keep your wood looking natural and new. On the other end, bold colours can add dramatic style to your outdoor space and can be used to visually tie your outdoor elements to the architecture of your home. Choose a semi-transparent stain to allow wood grain to show through, or a solid stain to provide more coverage with rich opaque colour.
