ARBORCOAT® stains offer superior protection while enhancing the texture and grain of wood surfaces. Choose from several opacities— semi-transparent, semi-solid and solid. Each opacity offers a level of color that reveals more or less of the wood.
Choosing the Right Opacity:
Solid: Covers a majority of imperfections while lightly allowing the texture of the wood to show through. Available in 3,500 Benjamin Moore colors.
Semi-Solid: Ideal for soft woods, Semi-Solid stains provide a barrier with more color while covering most imperfections.
Semi-Transparent: Allows some of the wood grain and texture to show through with a bit of color.
Waterborne stains clean up easily (with soap and water), dry quickly and provide excellent UV protection, which slows down the fading of wood’s color, known as graying. Classic oil finishes penetrate deep into the wood, resulting in a uniform finish that protects the wood inside and out. Oil stains are proven to minimize cracking and peeling and are easy to recoat.Learn More
