Fall Painting & Staining

Fall Painting and Staining


Fall is the perfect time to get the last of those painting projects done. Typically we have some beautiful weather in September and October, which can allow you to get those last projects off the list. Whether it’s painting inside or out, getting that deck stained and winter ready, you still have time to get it done!

Kevin carries a wide range of brand name stains and paints, often more variety than you would find at a paint store. For stains, he carries mostly oil based, with a few water based options. Benjamin Moore, Cabot, Penofin, Sikkens and Ready Seal are all available in our paint department. In paint, we carry Benjamin Moore. These are available in a wide range of colors and finishes – Flat, Eggshell, Semi Gloss, High Gloss. Kevin, and the staff at the paint department are all available to help you with any questions, concerns or colour matching help you may need.

Another great resource that the paint department has is a stain board. Kevin has cut pieces of cedar decking and applied every color of premixed stain that we carry and has them on display for you to see. Having this display available really gives you a true idea of what the stain will look like when applied, rather than trying to guess with small swatches on the can. Come on in and check it out! :)
