Protect Your Deck

A beautiful deck lets you enjoy the great outdoors from the comfort of your home. d'Lanes Painting offers deck painting and staining in Boston and throughout Massachusetts. Paints and stains protect your deck from the elements and keep it looking great.

Newly Stained Deck


Staining gives your deck a strong layer of protection against wear and tear. With the right staining products — prepared and applied correctly — your deck will last for many years. Each type of stain is designed for use on a specific type of project. For example, a deck stain is specially formulated to handle the foot traffic that is experienced on a deck. It is important to use a stain that is applicable to your project.

Opacity Stains

Stains offer a variety of different levels of opacity, from clear finishes to solid colors. Opacity is determined by the amount of pigment in a stain. The more pigment, the more opaque the coverage will be. More opaque stains offer longer-lasting protection for the wood.

Transparent, semi-transparent, and semi-solid stains are designed to protect without completely obscuring the natural color and texture of wood. As the opacity moves towards solid, less grain shows through the finish. In contrast, solid stains will completely mask the wood grain, while allowing the wood texture to show through.
