Get Your Deck Ready for Summer with Arborcoat Stains, from Columbia Paint and Clarksville Paint & Decorating, Benjamin Moore Dealers

Spring is the perfect time to get your outdoor spaces looking their best! Benjamin Moore Arborcoat stains will help you beautify and protect your investment.

Aborcoat’s advanced waterborne technology has been engineered for superior durability and protection. The benefits of Arborcoat Waterborne Stains include:

  • Excellent color retention
  • Dries in 1-3 hours
  • Provides a UV and mildew-resistant coating
  • Easy soap and water clean up
  • Solid stains can be used on composite decks

Our waterborne stains come in multiple opacities (translucent, semi transparent, semi solid, and solid). When selecting an opacity, keep in mind that the amount of pigment in the stain dictates the longevity of the color and finish. The more opaque the stain, the longer it will last. We have sample pints available for purchase so that you can test the color and opacity before you invest in a larger quantity.

We also carry Arborcoat’s Classic Oil Finishes with advanced alkyd technology for strong penetration and excellent durability. The unique alkyd formulation enhances the natural beauty of the wood by delivering rich color and long-lasting protection, without obscuring woodgrain or texture. The benefits of Arborcoat Classic Oil Finishes include:

  • Excellent durability: resists cracking and peeling
  • Provides a UV and mildew resistant coating
  • Translucent oil finishes designed to enrich hardwood
  • Oil primer offers excellent adhesion and stain-blocking properties


The Classic Oil Finishes come in translucent, semi-transparent, and semi-solid. We also have an oil primer to start the job off right.


Preparation is the key to success when staining. If you want optimum performance, you will want to be sure to use the proper product to prepare your surface.

  • Remove is designed to remove peeling oil and latex stains
  • Restore is a bleach-free formula designed to restore grayed and severely weathered wood
