Opaque stains result in a solid colour but still allow the timber profile to show through unlike an acrylic that sits on the surface. Opaque stains have a longer life span, typically 5 to 7 years. Horizontal surfaces such as decking may need to be recoated more frequently, a simple wash down and re-apply is required.
