When it comes to staining your deck or fence, there are many options to choose from. Between product, color and opacity, it can be overwhelming. Here’s a breakdown of what the opacity of colors mean:
Clear: No color added, shows the natural beauty of the wood.
Translucent: Enriches the beauty of wood with a touch of color and allows the grain and texture to show through.
Semi-Transparent: Beauties wood with color while allowing most of the grain and texture to show through.
Semi-Solid: Covers most imperfections while allowing some of the grain and texture of the wood to show through.
Solid: Covers a majority of imperfections while lightly allowing the texture of the wood to show through.
One of the products that Spectrum uses, Arborcoat by Benjamin Moore, is designed to protect wood from harsh UV rays and water damage. Staining a brand new bare wood fence or a sanded down deck is important in the keeping the longevity of your exterior areas.

Spectrum did a fabulous job. The team was excellent, professional, and thoroughly cleaned up when finished. I hired Spectrum to paint inside my garage & install a concrete coating floor. They also installed concrete coating by my outdoor entrance. Spectrum did a fabulous job. The team was excellent, professional, and thoroughly cleaned up when finished.

We used Spectrum Painting to paint our laundry room, kitchen, living room, office, powder room, sitting room, 2 story foyer and hall, 2 bedrooms, master bedroom, ceilings in kitchen, living room, and foyer, 3 car garage, shutters on 13 windows, and the front door with 2 sidelights. In addition to the walls being painted all doors, baseboards, window frames, crown molding, and other trim were included. Furthermore, we had a wallpaper border removed and crown molding added in the master bedroom. The paint job took less than a week and turned out great! We could not be happier with all of the colors we chose (with the help of Pam) and the way the it turned out. Overall, the sales team, including Rich Lauretta and John Mangiafreno, the project manager Rafael, and the design consultant Pam Steinhilber were all very professional and a pleasure to work with.
