General Paint is the only general purpose paint that we carry, and Pioneer has sold it for over 60 years.
We choose General Paint because it is a high quality and affordable paint. They supply both exterior and interior paints and their colour chart offers more than a thousand different possibilities.
Pioneer is proud to be the only retailer in Chilliwack that carries “Fat Paint.”
“The FAT Paint Company makes chalk-style paint that goes on smooth, distresses easily, and finishes with flair. Developed by an artisanal brother-sister duo, FAT Paint transforms old furniture, frames, bowls, jars, and anything at all really into enviable works of upcycled art.”
FAT Paint is easy to apply and can really transform an old piece of furniture into something special. It is available in 42 inspiring colours.
Minwax has 2 main products: Polyshades and Wood Finish
Minwax® PolyShades® combines beautiful oil based wood stain and polyurethane in one simple step. Minwax® PolyShades® provides rich wood colour and long lasting protection while enhancing the wood grain. PolyShades® will reduce finishing time compared with staining with one product and protecting with another.
Minwax® Wood Finish™ is an oil-based wood stain that provides long-lasting wood tone colour. It penetrates deep into the pores to seal and protect the wood. Minwax® Wood Finish™ is available in 25 wood tone colours and can be used to enhance any bare or stripped wood surface. It is ideal for staining furniture, cabinets, doors, trim, molding, and hardwood floors.
Varathane has 2 main products: Gel Stain and Ultimate Wood Stain
This rich, thick formula provides twice the coverage of traditional oil-based stains—and prevents drips—while beautifully enhancing the wood grain and patina. This is the perfect stain for vertical surfaces.
Ultimate Wood Stain
Ultimate Wood Stain penetrates the wood very quickly, and also very deeply. It achieves colour in one hour and can accept a clear coat in about an hour as well. Great for those jobs you want to get finished quickly.
WATCO® Danish Oil is a unique blend of penetrating oil & varnish hardens in the wood, not on the wood. WATCO® Danish Oil penetrates deep into wood pores to protect from within and to enhance the natural look and feel of the wood. It creates the rich, warm glow of a traditional hand-rubbed finish. Many projects can be completed in less than an hour – simply brush or wipe on and wipe off.
High-end Exterior Stains
Sikkens Proluxe is another high quality stain that we offer. For use on decks, siding, windows and doors this stain provides a distinctively rich and vibrant finish. Sikkens ProLuxe premium products are designed to provide unrivaled looks, durability and performance on all types of exterior wood.
Wood posts, beams and decking material is an expensive part of your home. Using a higher end stain for protection and appearance is something our paint experts highly recommend
Sansin is the global leader in environmentally-friendly wood protection. Since 1986, they’ve been focused on creating the best performing, most beautiful water-borne wood finishes in the world.
We highly recommend Sansin stains for a few reasons as it:
- Penetrates deeply to protect the wood within
- Allows wood to breath
- Has a beautiful long lasting colour.
- Repels moisture and UV rays
General Purpose Exterior Stains
Woodcraft is the most economical exterior stain we carry. It is a General Paint product that contains a premium water repellent for longevity and protection.
Superdeck is great mainly because it’s a one-coat system. It has a three oil system with maximum grain clarity developed to give superior protection and enhanced colour to exterior wood.
