Stain Selection Guidance


RCP Shelters recommends a light color stain on the deck. The most popular stain color is Natural 716 on both the beams and the deck. Below left is an example. A contrast of dark beams and light deck is nice. Below right is an example of Riverwood beams with Natural 716 T&G deck.

Dark Stains:

Dark stains on T&G deck tend to create a gloomy feel under the pavilion. Additionally, darker stains on both the beams and T&G wood deck will not match because the grains of the exposed faces absorb stain differently. Below are examples of Mission Wall and Riverwood on both beams and deck.
