The Cabot 3-Step Project Guide will produce expert results with long-lasting beauty and top-quality protection.

Step 1: Assess the condition of your wood. 

Assess the Condition of Your Wood

Examine the surface of your deck or siding to identify challenges that need to be addressed. This important first step will help you determine which Cabot products will work best to beautify and protect your wood for years to come. Does your deck have:

  • New wood?  
  • Mold & mildew? 
  • Weathering or UV damage? 
  • Tannin Bleed? 
  • Peeling?

Step 2: Prep with the right product.

Choose a formula based on the condition of your wood to prepare it to accept stain and ensure successful results.

Step 3: Stain

Choose a stain by considering the condition of your wood, how much wood grain and color coverage you want in the final look, and the need for durability. Transparent Stains show more of the natural wood grain. Solid (opaque) stains cover wood grain and are more durable.
