School is nearly out. Days are longer, and the weather in Atlanta and North Georgia has been beautiful so far in 2016. Summer is upon us. I bet you’re going to be spending more and more time outside with friends and family. Cooking out on the grill. Watching the kids swing. Planting some annuals around in the flower beds.
The Georgia sun is brutal on horizontal painted and stained surfaces. Most folks want their decks to have that semitransparent / woodgrain look that you can only achieve with stain, but unless you enjoy re-staining your deck every year or so, the less opaque your finish, the less time it is going to look its best.
But let’s face it, Georgia weather is often the punchline of jokes. If you don’t like Georgia weather… just wait 30 minutes.
In the fall and winter we can go from freezing temps to upper 80s in less than 24 hours. We can go from hail and thunderstorms to ‘gotta use sunscreen’ weather in less time than that.
Your home and your deck needs protection against all the elements that Georgia weather can throw at it.
So let me ask you this…
If It Can Outlast Seasons of Weather and Wear… Is It Still Stain?
Benjamin Moore ARBORCOAT is ranked the “Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Exterior Stains” by J.D. Power.
That means that Benjamin Moore received the highest numerical score among exterior stains in the J.D. Power 2016 Paint Satisfaction Study, based on 16,128 responses from 9 companies measuring experiences and perceptions of customers who purchased and applied exterior stain in the previous 12 months, surveyed in January-February, 2016.
Now, your experiences may vary… gotta say that, but all things being equal, we believe that if you prep and apply ARBORCOAT the way recommended by Benjamin Moore, you will not only LOVE the way your deck looks, you’ll be able to enjoy it longer because it will continue to look great while offering superior protection against the Atlanta and North Georgia weather.
