Wood stains penetrate the grain to bring out its natural beauty rather than covering it while offering extra protection from weathering elements. There are many coloured wood stains and a choice of top trade brands and sizes suitable for a variety of applications.
While a stain deeply penetrates wood, a varnish remains on the outside of your surfaces to form a protective barrier. Usually clear and transparent, varnishes will harden along the outer layer of your wood. Some varnishes do include colour to enhance or alter the wood shade.
If you are wondering whether it is better to stain or paint wood, then it is worth realising that stain protects and preserves the beauty of your wood compared to paint, which covers and hides it. Stain wears away gradually for periodic re-coating, while paint peeling requires extensive scraping.
Another alternative is wood oil, which is used to finish and protect wooden furniture while enhancing the wood grain effect. Made from natural products, it is microporous. This enables the oil to become part of the wood grain. There are many different timber treatment oils for wood, each specifically designed for a particular use.
