Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Plenty of how-to books on exterior painting, as well as interior staining, are available, but until now, the do-it-yourselfer or professional had nowhere to turn for comprehensive advice on exterior staining.

Staining is gaining popularity in many areas of the country as the only practical way to protect and beautify certain woods and add to the lifespan of exterior features such as decks, fencing, exterior furniture, and various kinds of wood siding, such as cedar and redwood. In addition, stains are now available in hundreds of colors.

Perfect Exterior Staining stands alone as the one resource that provides insight to this technique, which has come into its own in the last 15 years.

The author discusses kinds of exterior wood; types of stain, tools, and equipment; and the preparation process for staining. Other topics covered are making minor repairs; staining decks, fencing, outdoor structures, siding, furniture, and play equipment; and refinishing stained wood. All this information is complemented by beautiful exterior photography.

Synopsis:

Finally, a comprehensive book devoted exclusively to the art of exterior staining. In Perfect Exterior Staining, veteran author and home improvement expert Tom Philbin shows do-it-yourselfers and professionals why and how to stain and restain exterior wood. Often exterior stain is more commonly used than exterior paint. It is the only practical way to protect certain exterior woods and add beauty and years of life. It is the preferred coating for decks and for many types of outdoor furniture, fencing, and siding. Stains are currently available in a wide range of colors, from natural shades that enhance the grain of the wood to solid colors of every hue. This book will take you step-by-step through the staining process, from preparing the surface through perfect application. Book jacket.

Synopsis:

Tom Philbin is the author of more than 30 books in the areas of home improvement, including How to Hire a Home Improvement Contractor Without Getting Chiseled and Painting, Staining, Finishing
