Plenty of how-to books on exterior painting, as well as interior staining, are available, but until now, the do-it-yourselfer or professional had nowhere to turn for comprehensive advice on exterior staining.
Staining is gaining popularity in many areas of the country as the only practical way to protect and beautify certain woods and add to the lifespan of exterior features such as decks, fencing, exterior furniture, and various kinds of wood siding, such as cedar and redwood. In addition, stains are now available in hundreds of colors.
Perfect Exterior Staining stands alone as the one resource that provides insight to this technique, which has come into its own in the last 15 years.
The author discusses kinds of exterior wood; types of stain, tools, and equipment; and the preparation process for staining. Other topics covered are making minor repairs; staining decks, fencing, outdoor structures, siding, furniture, and play equipment; and refinishing stained wood. All this information is complemented by beautiful exterior photography.
