Outdoor Paint & Stain


There are a lot of things to consider when painting or staining wood outdoors.


  1. What's on there now? Oil or water-based paint or stain?

  2. Does the wood need to be stripped or cleaned?

  3. Is there any rotted wood that needs to be repaired/replaced?

  4. Do any planks need to be repaired or replaced?

  5. What kind of wood is there?

  6. What kind of paint / stain? Opaque, semi-transparent, transparent?

  7. What color?

  8. What sheen?


Yep. It's more complicated than just coming picking a color and brushing it on!
