(MONTVALE, NJ—MAY, 2012)—In time for the spring home spruce-up season, Benjamin Moore has launched

The site is aimed at supporting homeowners in their quest for just the right stain for their deck or siding. This easy-to-navigate compendium of all things stain-related informs, instructs and inspires with how-tos on stain preparation, guidance on selecting the right product that's best for a specific job, show-and-tell demonstration videos on application techniques, plus color and opacity options that Benjamin Moore offers.

Additionally, the site directs consumers to painting contractors who, having completed a course of study, are certified by Benjamin Moore and qualify as authorities in the category of exterior stains—painting professionals a homeowner can depend upon for any type of stain project.

"We want consumers to have complete confidence in those who are selling or using Benjamin Moore stains—assured that they are the ultimate experts, fully knowledgeable on how these products perform," said Rob Sheehan, Benjamin Moore's director of stain and primer segments.

Homeowners interested in pursuing stain options should visit to view the entire ARBORCOAT® portfolio of exterior stains and then explore the numerous tools that help in choosing the right product for the project. An easy next step is sampling and testing ARBORCOAT®. To test your color and stain choice, consider purchasing a pint from our official Online Store or at a nearby Benjamin Moore retailer.
