It’s no wonder new home developers are now switching to Southern Stain! Here’s a few reasons why.


Did you know that oil-based stains can take up to 24 hours for each coat to dry? With trades frequently coming and going on a busy job site, this isn’t ideal. The longer the drying time, the higher the chance of damage and dust and particles drying into the stain.

This is why Southern Stain choose water-based products that take just 30 minutes before they are touch and dry and 2 hours before re sanding and application. A timesaver for both us!

Safe For The Whole Family

We want you to feel confident in the safety of your family. Many paints and oil-based products contain nasty fumes that can linger for years to come and can have an effect on respiratory conditions. Water-based stains selected by Southern Stain are very low odour and are safe for the entire family.

Preparation Is Key

We believe preparation is the key to a stunning finish.

At Southern Stain, we use robust commercial sanding equipment with inbuilt vacuum systems to catch any dust before it spreads through your new home.

Each staircase is carefully prepared by our professional team prior to stain and varnish. Inconsistencies are filled and sanded to provide a flawless canvas.

The Southern Stain Difference

At Southern Stain we treat every staircase as if it were our own. Each one of our employees is trained in the art of the clean-up. On completion of each job, we vacuum and mop so the only evidence that we were there is a stunning and completed staircase.
