Exterior house stains provide protection and beauty for your home's wood exterior. The type of stain you choose — solid color or semi-transparent — depends on the results you want to achieve. Regardless of which high-quality Sherwin-Williams stain you choose for your project, the maximum durability and wood protection are guaranteed.

Solid Color Stains

To help cover up wood blemishes or unsightly grain, use our long-lasting WoodScapes solid color stain. With the consistency of a thin house paint, WoodScapes is easy to apply, yet it penetrates wood to protect against water damage and deterioration.
With WoodScapes solid color stain - backed by an 8-year warranty - you can eliminate exterior coating problems, such as blistering, peeling and cracking.

Semi-Transparent Stains

To bring out the beauty of wood exteriors, use WoodScapes semi-transparent stain, which highlights the wood beneath the grain by enriching the wood's natural texture and grain. Semi-transparent stains protect the wood's surface while providing an attractive coat of color. WoodScapes semi-transparent stains carry a 5-year guarantee.
Long-term color retention and exceptional weather resistance provide like-new beauty that outlasts conventional oil-based stains but offer the cleanup convenience of a water-based formula.
