Customer Questions & Answers

how well does it work on a vertical wood fence?

will it leak as it is turned to go up and down a wood fence plank?
Asked by: Anonymous
I didn' try it on a vertical. I don't think it would leak, but the problem is it's gravity fed and I really needed it to be vertical to feed properly. I would think it would work if you started at the bottom and got the pad really wet (like loading a brush) then went to the top until it didn't have enough, and repeat.

Asked by: Anonymous

Deckmate is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would have never bought this but.... I was working for a lady who bought this and when she gave it to me to use i thought oh my here we go. these gimmicks never work like they say they are going to. I to had some flow problems at first but with a little patients and adjusting of the flow knob this turned out to be the best tool i have ever used for doing a deck. some tips from what i learned are when you are starting at a wall or come to one turn the flat end to the wall push down firm and pull it out , when the board goes off into nothing start the flat end barley hanging of the end of the board and come in. find a good flow and stay working at that pace either fast or slow. i have cleaned my deckmate 3 times (very easy) and still could use the pad but it is worn pretty good

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tell a friend What a great product. It took me 1 hour to stain my 20x16 deck. No mess, no brush marks - perfect every time. The only problem I had was during cleanup. The rubber breather grommet inside the fill cap broke after my first use. I have not yet had any luck finding replacements. I have an email into Wagner, still waiting for their response. Other than that, this is a great product. I would highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty nice tool! Well worth $20! I finished the floor to our deck which used to take 3-4 hours in less than an hour with the Deckmate! Clean-up was a bit of a pain and be prepared to buy a replacement pad for $5 every once in a while, but other than that it's definitely worth buying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from deckmate After having knee surgery, i wanted to find something that would help me stain the deck without having to kneel down. After reading the reviews I wasn't sure i wanted to purchase this product, but I did. I had none of the issues the others had, I did a 10x12 deck in less than an hour. I poured the stain in, applied and it cleaned up nicely. The next day same results, this product worked great! I wish I had purchased this product sooner, saved so much more time and stain. The only thing i would change is to make brushes on the sides to get between the boards as well. and something to make getting in the corners easier as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would not oil stain a deck without this tool I refinish decks professionally. I use the Deckmate exclusively because you can move fast. ALWAYS START WITH FRESH NEW STAIN! #1 Remove loose nails and screw down loose boards & always pressure wash dirty deck. Stain over dirt or wet surface = BAD RESULTS #2 Use Behr Wood Brightener for mold or mildew #3 Never use on rough stone or splintered surfaces unless you have several replacement pads. #4 Use a hand pad on vertical surfaces. #5 It is mandatory to stir the stain thoroughly & often or you GET BAD RESULTS. #6 NEVER leave puddles! #7 Barely spin open variable fluid control while moving on board back & forth till fluid flows down to pad gets an even coating. BE PATIENT while tubing & pad fills. Then keep moving forward. Adjust control according to how fast you move and thickness of material. TOO WET? Speed up or close down control a bit and keep moving till flow evens out. #8 Turn flat side toward flat edges. Know that when you turn off flow control that fluid in tubing continues to drain out till empty. Clean immediately & thoroughly with appropriate solvent. I use my Deckmate on multiple decks before I replace it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an outstanding producy It takes me (with the help of family) hours to stain, using a brush, the large dock and even larger deck at our cottage. With my Deckmate I get the job done in a fraction of the time, with much less effort, and the results are excellent. It's easy to clean and has stood up well to repeated use. For critics who say that the Deckmate is gimmicky, I say 'sometimes gimmicks work'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest invention The Wagner Deckmate is so easy to use. I can cover my 500 square foot deck in about 30 minutes and only takes minutes for clean up. The flow is easy to adjust and you can apply the stain almost as fast as you can walk. All my neighbors now use this product after they saw how fast and easy it was to stain my deck.
