A Guide to Your Deck Stain Options

Last updated 5 years ago

Wooden decks require protection from severe weather and pests, but you do have a few different options for deck stains depending on the climate and your aesthetic preferences. This video covers some of the major differences between oil-based and latex-based deck finishes.

Oil-based finishes are popular since they penetrate deep into the grain of the wood and tend to provide more depth and color, though most require special cleaning agents. Latex-based finishes are typically cheaper and water-friendly. When choosing a color, keep in mind that darker finishes tend to show signs of damage sooner.
