Dunn-Edwards has introduced an all-new water-based wood stain that is available in 50 transformative hues to suit any architectural style. Exterior SOLID-COLOR Deck, Fence & Siding Stain was designed to provide long-lasting UV- and water-damage protection to stand the test of time, more so than other exterior wood stains on the market.
“In just two coats, our new stain product can breathe new life into old wood surfaces and protect new wood surfaces thanks to its performance-driven formulation,” says Tim Bosveld, vice president of product management at Dunn-Edwards. “We’re very excited to add SOLID-COLOR to our best-in-class lineup of paint products to help consumers rejuvenate their exteriors, and to continue serving as a trusted paint partner to professionals.”
Joining the legacy paint brand’s lineup of specialty coatings, SOLID-COLOR helps to protect new wood and revitalize wood that has grayed from time and exposure to the elements with high-quality, grain-crack resistance and UV-damage protection. When tested for durability against competitor exterior stain products, SOLID-COLOR outperformed national brands with strong resistance to dirt pickup, grain crack, mold and mildew.
The palette consists of 50 colors was curated by Dunn-Edwards color experts and inspired by top-performing hues across the Dunn-Edwards Perfect Palette® color system. It includes a range of warm and cool neutrals, such as Sedona Sandstone (DESS06) and Vintage Oak (DESS41), as well as bolder yet earthy blues and greens, such as Smoky Brushland (DESS27) and Faded Blue Clapboard (DESS34).
Selecting a color for an exterior wood stain should be approached with the same care and consideration as any other home color decision. This new stain product provides the best of both worlds—top performance and plenty of color options—so consumers and pros alike can spruce up any exterior wood surface, from decks and doors to fences and siding.
SOLID-COLOR goes on smoothly and uniformly, drying to its final color and matte sheen in 1 to 2 hours after application. An additional coat—applied 4 to 6 hours after the first—is always recommended to achieve sheen uniformity.
