Approved Deck Stains

Owners may use clear sealants on their decks without Architectural Review Committee (ARC) approval. Additionally, stains that are on the List of Pre-approved Deck Stains may also be used without ARC approval.

What if I want to use a stain not on the List of Pre-approved Deck Stains?
Any stains not on the List require ARC approval. The ARC will typically approve transparent stains, also known as wood toners. The ARC will not approve semi-transparent stains and solid color stains.
