Default Storm Stain

I was in a local hardware store and Storm Stain caught my eye. Website presents it as a stain that can deal with the elements. I believe it is a California paint, but the website states "now available in the United States," so I am not sure where it was before the U.S. I live in New England right on the coast, and the house right on the coast deal with a lot of harsh weather. Wondering if anyone has used this product, and with what results.

I love the entire Storm Stain line. It is made by California, and it has been available for at least 10 years that I know of. It is great stain. The Enduradeck alkyd modified stuff from them is great as well. I live in New England, and use this stuff all the time on properties right on the ocean, and it holds up great.

Pete,

yes Storm Stain is a Calif Products product. Although I am surprised you are not intimately familiar with Calif Products, they are a Mass company, about 25 miles west of you in Andover. They know our weather conditions.

and yes, S.S. has gotten high marks for many years, Calif was at the vanguard of developing acrylic emulsions back in the early 50's

I am going to have to try it out. I guess i can blame my lack of knowledge on the stuff to living at the end of the earth in gloucester. Only real paint store stopped selling california paints, and was always more of a bm store.

I honestly believe that Storm Stain is better than anything SW or BM makes.

Even the straight acrylic stuff they make is awesome. I did a fence 6 years ago that abuts a parking lot- piles of snow packed up against one side of the fence for weeks on end- it still look good.

The alkyd modified Enduradeck was made for wind blown sand and salt water. I used it as trim paint on the east facing ocean side of a house right on the beach (I was only doing that side) and 5 years later it looks really good. Previously, they were painting that trim every 2 years (with quality paint). I bet the enduradeck goes 8 years on that sand/water blasted trim.

The stuff is not cheap, but it's in line with BM and SW pricing for their stuff.
