TWP Cedartone 101 wood deck stain preserves the Natural wood color
Novi, MI (PRWEB) April 18, 2012
Spring is the time for outdoor cleaning, especially the large wood deck in the backyard. Backyard decks are the main focal point and gathering place of all the summer barbecue parties. If a deck is left neglected it could cost a lot of money in future deck repairs. The life of a wooden cedar deck is roughly 20 years and is possible to get more life out of it by making sure it is protected. Unfortunately, when its time to seal the deck most homeowners head to the box stores to purchase their stain. Only to find it peeling the following spring. All of that hard work down the drain, sound familiar? Products that clean up with soap and water don't protect the wood the same way as oil based stain like TWP Stain, Rymar sealer, and Duckback Superdeck stain, which is only found at specialty stores or online stain dealers. Big box stores only mostly carry water soluble products. The front label may say oil, but the clean-up on the back label says clean up with soap and water. Deck stain manufacturing companies think that their products work, They just have never tested them in colder climate states like Michigan. Most formulas are for the West Coast. Midwest winters take a toll on any stain, especially water based ones. Products like TWP, Rymar, and Superdeck offer Oil based formulas that penetrate into the wood strengthening the wood fibers allowing the stain to wear off instead of peeling off. Do yourself a favor and research deck tains and preservatives before heading off to the box stores. Online retailers like The Stain Depot offer excellent lineups of deck sealers at low prices.
Products like TWP 100 series Cedartone 101 wood deck stain and Preservative in still manufactured and available for non VOC states by Gemini Coatings. It is a popular oil based deck stain for many contractors in the Midwest, especially Michigan. For VOC states try using TWP 1500 series Cedartone 1501.
