Best wood porch stain?
The best deck stain to use for a wood porch is a semi-transparent or semi-solid penetrating deck stain. Penetrating deck stains are best because they soak into the fibers of the wood for better protection against sun and moisture. The more pigment in the stain the more it protects against harmful UV rays. Semi-transparent deck stain is ideal for wood porches because it allows the beauty of the wood to shine through while protecting it completely. Semi-solid penetrating deck stains should be used when you want to hide the wood grain.
