Coating Options:

AbsolutePost comes raw as a standard, but can be factory finished prior to shipping if you so desire. You select the finished stain color for your product and we apply the optimal amount of paint in a controlled environment that is superior to job-site painting. Our factories run year-round and can keep your production of finished homes rolling in any season. Why limit yourself to 12 color options? Express your individual style with ColorGuardTM.
