Update for 2019: This is our initial Review of the Cabot Solid Color Wood and Deck Stain. This review will be updated through the years. Cabot Solid stains have been around for 20+ years and used to be one of the top brands. We have found that since Cabot was sold to Valspar, their quality has fallen for all their different types of deck stains
We appreciate your input. If you have used the Cabot Solid Color Deck stains, feel free to leave a comment below and pictures of your completed projects.
Cabot Solid Color Deck Stain Review
Summary: Cabot® Solid Color Decking Stains are extremely durable exterior stains for use on all wood decking, outdoor furniture, and fencing, as well as cement patios and walkways. Series #1800, 100% acrylic finish is also water repellent and fade resistant. Oil Series #1600 and #7600 contain all-natural pigment with 100% alkyd resin. Solid Color Stains provide excellent adhesion to new, previously stained or painted surfaces, which are in a clean, sound condition.
Solid Color Decking Stains are ideal for use on most types of lumber including redwood, cypress, pine, and fir, as well as pressure-treated wood.
