Since the VOC law changed in 2012 transparent and semi-transparent stain performance evaluation has become challenging. Many factors such as texture, solvent restrictions and the use of hazardous chemicals in cleanup and maintenance should be considered when specifying a stain for exterior wood use. This course explores those factors and provides case studies showcasing different results.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Recognize the importance of wood texture in stain selection/performance.
  2. Understand the VOC law change in 2012 and its impact on stain performance.
  3. Gain Clarity on the difference between film forming and penetrating finishes (oil vs. water).
  4. Understand the true labor/maintenance costs associated with above stain decisions over a 10-year span, the $100,000 question.
