Stain Matching Program

Somerset offers a program through PPG Industries to make color-matched stains for each of Somerset’s current stain colors. This will help you with your needs to match moldings, stair parts, wood vents, woodwork, cabinets, etc., as close as possible to the color of your Somerset floor.

To locate a participating Pittsburgh Paint Dealer to mix matching stains* based on the Somerset formulas below, please do one of the following:

  1. PPG To obtain a formulation, use the formulation chart available on the Somerset Web site, or call PPG’s Architectural Technical Service hotline at 1-800-441-9695. Press #2 for Color Matching.

  2. Once you have acquired your formula, ask to be transferred to Customer Service or contact them directly at 1-877-774-3131. Ask for the nearest “Company-Owned” PPG Paint store.

It is recommended that you call the store and give them the manufacturer name of Somerset Hardwood Flooring, and the color name needed (i.e. "Golden Oak") so they can verify that they have the necessary base materials. They will also be able to supply the sealer and topcoat compatible with the stain.

IMPORTANT, PLEASE NOTE: The beauty of wood is that it is a natural product, therefore no two pieces match and different pieces take stain differently. In working with Pittsburgh Paints to provide stain formulas, our goal is to meet customer requests and needs for obtaining stains that will blend with Somerset flooring colors. Neither Pittsburgh Paints nor Somerset Hardwood Flooring is responsible for final finished colors, since the stains may be applied to different wood substrates, and we have no control over the application methods or results. Somerset Hardwood Flooring cannot be responsible for any work that occurs outside our factory.
