WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OIL BASED AND WATER BASED DECKING COATINGS?

It’s a common frustration that we hear about time and time again. Reinforced by misconceptions and confused by the volume of information available – What is the difference between WATER BASED and OIL BASED exterior coatings?
