ABOUT LIFE EXPECTANCY
The purpose to FinishedWood.Com’s life expectancy timelines is to provide a realistic expectation of how long a finish might last. Timelines are greatly determined by varying degrees of exposure and are not warranties.
OIL VS. WATER
Most stains are available in both oil and water based products. FinishedWood.Com can do either type (only water based products on cement). The Western Red Cedar Lumber Association recommends oil based stains and primers, which is the default product of choice for FinishedWood.Com.
If water based stain is desired, two coats is typically required versus one coat of the same product in oil. This is because oil stains penetrate much better than its water based counterparts.

FinishedWood.Com specializes in custom colors. Choose from any paint brand color pallet and FinishedWood.Com can match it solid color stain or paint. Have a tweeked color? Provide a sample and FinishedWood.Com can do that too.
