His customer was more than happy to pay him for the trip. In fact i sell Storm stains to customers from 3 surrounding states. The distance is quite irreverent to them it seems.
Irreverent?

PACman, I'm sure someone has brought up this idea (genius) before, but, you really should pitch a reality TV show to one of the networks, maybe even Netflix. Ratings for paint store shenanigans and hijinks, as well as your interactions here, would be sky high. Just a thought. You would be the Rick Harrison (not Chumlee) of the paint store industry.

180 miles round trip to buy paint? That's one broke contractor.

BTW PAC, I would really welcome Cali paints to the Richmond, VA area. So if you could make that happen, that would be great.

Anyhow.... the question was, "what are the best deck stains?" Not, "what are the best deck stains available through a particular store in a limited geographical area?" Sometimes if you want the best of something you have to travel to get it or order it online. Your not going to get the best of anything going to the closest box stores or the local corporate paint store.

If you want a Rolls Royce and not a ford or chevy (not that there is anything wrong with either!), you are going to have to do some travelling to get it. If someone asked me what the best car was, would i say Dodge? Nope. You'll have to drive and get ya a roller if ya want the best!

It's like my spell check program which, if I fail to put a space between "water" and "based", changes it to "waterbed" every damned time.

When messaging an employee I discovered that voice text doesn't easily recognize "caulk", you can imagine what it thinks I'm saying.....luckily I reviewed it before sending.

Thanks everyone for your comments. This helps a lot. Gymschu, I appreciate the Deckstainhelp website. That helped a lot. I'm not offended by the DIY comment. I did ask the question like an amateur. I've just discovered this site and am still learning it. I've decided to experiment with a few stains. It took me a couple of weeks but I have talked my wife into letting me start with our deck by using two different stains (she was afraid it would look bad with a possibility of two different shades I will do 3 boards at a time rotating stains between Deckscapes and TWP. I think it will look cool but we'll see. Thanks again to everyone, Dave-007
