SuperDeck Acrylic Solid Color Deck
"Provides durable, opaque protection for all exterior horizontal wood surfaces. It is recommended
that you consult the manufacturer of your composite deck for staining
SuperDeck solid stain is what we use most often for
staining decks. SuperDeck stain provides excellent durability, and although the stain is solid, the thin
consistency of the material still allows the beauty of the wood grain pattern to be visible. The
stain is available in a wide range of Sherwin Williams colors, including
deep-base and ultra deep-base colors.
The stain is available in a solid, semi-solid,
semi-transparent and transparent finish. The solid stain provides the best UV protection and durability.
Restaining a deck with solid stain usually also requires less preparation than restaining with a
semi-solid or semi-transparent stain where the existing stain might need to be stripped and removed to prevent it
from showing through the new stain. The semi-solid and semi-transparent stains are best if you want the wood grain
in your deck boards to show through the stain more.
Solid Color Deck Stain:
- Can be used on composite decking
- Protects new, weathered or previously stained
- Scuff-resistant for walking surfaces such as decks and
