We have chosen a new deck stain, as to be more specific and gain a standard appearance to our community. As most decks are aging, solid stains are now the standard product for use. These include the stain code (Benjamin Moore ES-24 California Rustic – solid stain). The codes will also work for Valspar and other products, allowing more flexibility in brands for our owners, while maintaining a consistent appearance. Lowes can do a color match easily with the above code in solid finish.
