World of Stains, a leading supplier of wood stains, has a warehouse full of exterior wood care products. We supply wood stains and wood sealants from high quality manufacturers only with a large selection of wood stain types. When selecting a wood stain, look for those that offer protection from UV light, water, and mildew. Clears, toners and semitransparent finishes allow the natural wood grain and appearance to show through. Semi-solid and solid stains contain more pigment and will show the texture of the wood but not the grain, giving the wood a more painted appearance.
Film forming finishes are multiple coat products for a varnished look.. Film finishes are recommended for vertical surfaces like log and timber frame homes only. They provide a moisturizing and protective coating for wood homes and give wood a beautiful satin finish that lets the natural grain show through.

Keys to successfully applying wood finishes:
1) Read and understand all label directions. Contact the manufacturer if you have questions. 2) Prep the surface properly. The surface must be clean, dry and in most cases free of previous coatings or peeling finish. 3) Mix products thoroughly. Intermix all containers (box them) to insure consistent batch to batch color. 4) Apply as directed during dry, moderate weather (50-90 degrees) and avoid application shortly before or after rainshowers. 5) Handle materials properly to avoid the risk of spontaneous combustion fires.
