Quickly Plan Your Stain Project with ProjectPro

Start Your Deck, Fence or Siding Project With Confidence

With the new Olympic ProjectPro online tool, beginning a stain project has never been easier. Simply launch the app in any browser, from your desktop or right from your phone (no downloading required), and answer a few quick questions about the condition of your wood to get started. You have the opportunity to visualize stain colors and transparencies on different decks, fences or siding projects, and get a product recommendation generated specifically for you.

ProjectPro delivers how-to tips and videos directly on screen, and gives you the option to email your results for later reference. Built for DIYers with any level of experience, this powerful assistant takes the guesswork out of staining.


Olympic stains have always delivered a remarkable finish. Starting today, we’ve got a powerful new way to help get you started, too. ​

Pick Your Project

It all starts with what you plan on staining. ProjectPro has quick options for a deck, fence, exterior furniture, siding/shingles, or structures (like a pergola or a gazebo). We'll still be able to walk you through whatever your project may be, but those tend to be the most common. 

Tell Us About Your Wood

Next, we'll need to know what kind of wood you're working with (and what shape it's in). Our diverse product offering has something special for nearly every type and state of wood, so it's important that we understand exactly what to recommend. You might have a new deck with unfinished, pressure treated lumber, or an old cedar gazebo that's grown weathered. The possibilities are vast but we've designed ProjectPro with that diversity in mind.

Pick Your Color

While this might be the first thing you thought of for your project, it's our last step to getting you started. You'll get to pick from all of our stain color offering and get a small glimpse of how it might look on your wood. We know we have a lot of colors to choose from, so we've made it fast and easy to switch between them as they catch your eye. 

Start Your Project

We take all that information and turn around a product recommendation specifically for your project. You'll also have the option to email yourself this result and find the closest place to buy your stain and other materials. ProjectPro also has a stain calculator, so you know exactly how much to buy, alongside materials lists, step-by-step staining instructions, and helpful videos. With our simple, one-stop spot for planning your project, you're closer than ever before to completing your next stain project.
