Why Should You Stain Your Deck?
Staining your deck can add value to your home. Wood stain is aesthetically pleasing and will protect the integrity of the wood from fading, natural wear, and water damage!
By staining your deck, you can make this part of your home more attractive. Stain and Sealers help to make the wood grain stand out while giving your home personality through color! Wood stain can make regular wood appear much more expensive and elegant.
Choose the Right Stain for You!
There are two significant components to consider before choosing a product –
ZAR® Deck & Siding comes in four different transparencies. Before staining, it is essential to decide between a light or full coverage stain. What look do you want to achieve? Something that allows the wood grain to show through or a more opaque stain?
There is a wide variety of wood stain colors! When choosing a color, be sure to check the deck’s surroundings and consider these items. Are there any shutters or railing you want to match? Will this color compliment your home’s aesthetic? Test the color in an inconspicuous area to avoid color regret!
Now that you determined the look you want, you’re ready to choose the best product for your deck! For more product information visit http://www.zar.com/zar-exterior-overview.php
