Understanding Opacity is Key
When it comes to the impact stain will have on your deck’s design, understanding opacity is key. Opacity is the degree to which you can see the natural grain of wood, achieved by using one of the following…
Clear stains let wood weather naturally, with waterproofing & fade protection for decks, fences, siding, wooden furniture & structures.
Translucent or transparent toner maintains the natural beauty of wood decks, fences, etc. with just a hint of colour.
Semi-transparent stains give a subtle colour that still highlights wood grain & texture, with more protection that clear stains.
Semi-solid stains show less of the wood grain but offer the trade-off of increased durability and protection.
Solid stains generally provide the highest level of protection, concealing most of the wood grain in the process.
