Porch Ideas Network Podcast Logo behr paints logo Need some exterior paint and stain ideas for your porch or deck this year? You've landed in a good place.

Our special guest, Rick Bautista, a product manager at Behr, walks us through the options for selecting the right exterior paints and stains for an amazing porch or deck floor. Whether your porch floor is wood or concrete, Rick shares some helpful ideas to make your project go smoothly.

Mary and I realize you can be overwhelmed with so many paint and stain choices on the market. Besides choosing the right products, you also need to understand the differences between transparent, semi-transparent, and solid finishes - and in which scenarios to use them. So we are pleased that the professionals at Behr, including Rick Bautista, Eric Lundquist and Duberney Ospina, joined our podcast to help us sort through the many wonderful options they offer.

Excerpts of Our Interview with the Experts at Behr



Product Types: "We have wood stain products with different opacities meaning how see through the coating, everything from transparent wood finishes which are typically used for newer decks and porches and wood that is in good condition that you still want to see the wood grain. Then you move up to semi-transparent wood stains that give a little bit more color but you still see the wood grain coming through..."

New Product: "We have a new product called Behr Premium Deckover, a solid colored cover that we are considering this as a re-surfacer, that can be used on wood or concrete surfaces and what it is designed to do is give your weathered deck a brand new look with a solid color that fills in the cracks..."

Preparation Is Key: "You know how important the preparation step is before putting your coating down, making sure it is in sound condition, removing any rotting boards or unstable boards, you need to replace them. and make sure the surface is clean of any mildew and dirt... "

Concrete Porch Flooring: "If it's a concrete front porch and it is old, say having been around 30 years, then it has a lot more character to it. Now you have choices again. Do you just want to put down a solid opaque coating, typical porch floor paint to cover up all the blemishes or do you want some of that character to show through. Then you have choices such as concrete dyes and stains..."
