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.

Hello - I can't tell you how completely satisfied I am with the work done/the workers and their attitude/ the efficiency/
the wonderful way the day went. I will tell anyone who asks that your company and staff are the very best in my 40 years
of hiring someone to work in my home. The new ethic is totally different and you hold the good standards that
make the work pleasant, pleasing and profitable for both sides! Thank you very much!

Perfect work, responsive to ideas and questions. Clean, meticulous workspace when finished. Have known Rich for years - he and his team are the real deal - exactly what you would hope for when hiring someone to do work at your home. Would not use anyone else for painting/floor coating but Spectrum!

Literally the most professional group I have had in my house in years! I highly recommend them to give your home a crisp facelift!
Very courteous and respectful of our concerns and property. They were friendly and meticulous about their work.

Very professional painter and estimator. They both were very articulate in how the project would proceed. The price was very reasonable too. I felt very comfortable leaving for the day. They were able to squeeze the job in on short notice for an open house. The blemishes on the walls were invisible with the perfect paint job. They were clean, neat, talented and punctual. Spectrum Painting will be my painter for life! I loved the box of cookies they brought for me and (dog treats for) the dog!

I never thought getting my garage floor painted would make so many of my friends jealous! You did such a meticulous job, especially on the details. I especially appreciated the time you took to explain all the necessary steps to complete a quality job. We are so glad we hired you. I am already thinking about some additional work for this spring.

Had spectrum paint our new addition inside and out and the rest of our first floor. They really did a great job. They were very professional and all of the painters took pride in their work. They showed up pleasant and left at the end of each day with a smile. They cleaned up like they weren't even there. I would highly recommend them.
