3 Ways To Use Semi-Transparent Stain

Whether your next project is big or small, bring this finished look to beautify your home and yard

Semi-transparent stain gives your deck or wood siding the best of both worlds: the natural look of wood grain and a wide variety of colors to choose from. Olympic Elite Semi-Transparent stain is a top choice among DIYers and Pros from other leading stains because of its rich finished look and durability. 

A Rooftop Retreat
City or suburb, turn your rooftop real estate into an oasis with wood decking and paneling. For a bold statement, choose different stain colors to create contrast. The back siding pictured below is stained with Cumaru. For finishing touches, add some foliage with large planters and an “in-ground” Japanese-style garden, completed with a bed of stones and slate stepping stones. 
This look can also be incorporated into a backyard in the form of a platform or “floating” deck. 


A Dashing Deck
A fresh coat of stain can turn any deck from dull to delightful in a short amount of time. Chestnut Brown is rich in color and relaxing on the eyes, making it perfect for decks large or small in backyards full of foliage. 


An Alluring Abode
Go big or go home by upgrading your home’s wood siding with a daring stain finish. Bold architecture commands bold color, and Jatoba’s deep red does the job on modern homes. 


All of these colors can make your deck look gorgeous when stained with the right finish. Check out the link below to learn more about how Olympic Elite can transform your deck.
