Solid deck stain – The most common stain used on the deck is transparent oil-based stain. It allows the grain and the underlying color of the wood to show through, and come in colors to match traditional wood tones, like cedar, pine and chestnut. Solid stains are opaque and will not disclose any of the underlying wood color. Fixed patch is applied like paint, even if it has a thinner consistency and makes the texture of the wood to show.
Solid deck stain is a good choice for heavily stained wooden deck. Solid stain can usually be adapted to any of the paint colors on your house. If you want a transparent stain instead of the spot, but like the idea of more imaginative colors like blue, green or pink, look beyond your big box home improvement store. Independent dealers and paint shops selling better brands of stain quality is more likely to wear non-traditional stain colors.
Consider using two (or more) color stain for your deck. If your solid deck stain has several levels, accentuate his or patio with a color and use another for the surrounding deck. Select steps and stairs for safety by staining them a different color for greater visibility. If your tires have railings, can be dyed a different color – maybe white or light gray to suit your house trim – in contrast to the decking.
