Customer Questions & Answers

Apply to dry wood- does this mean letting green lumber dry out and turn grey or simply "not wet?"

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: Nathan
Green wood needs to be dry, and dried wood needs to be dry, not rained on.

my cedar fence is over a year old. is it too late to apply this?
Asked by: tee
No, it's not too late! We would recommend cleaning the fence prior to staining. Just use a detergent based cleaner and spray it on the fence. Brush any persistent spots with a stiff bristle brush and rinse clean with a hose. Let dry overnight and you are ready to stain.

How would you describe the color?

We have a one year old cedar fence which we are doing for the first time. They told us to let it dry for a year. It already has some slight graying started. Our goal is to have it look like it did new, a hot golden color. Not orange , yellow or brown, but something in between, cedar colored. And will the graying affect the end result?
Asked by: srcinmn
The color is in the Yellows / Golds family.

What is the lowest temp to put this stain on? And how long to dry or set up?

Asked by: Randy
Temps between 60 and 90 degrees, although we had to apply when the temp was slightly below 60, and it worked fine. We didn't check the drying time because we had too much to do, but it was completely dry the next day. Drying time is not noted on the can.

1 gal. Oil-Based Cedar Penetrating Stain and Sealer is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Darkens wood significantly Even though this product is a transparent stain with 25% opacity and a light cedar tint, it darkens rough sawn cedar significantly, even after it dries.

I used two 5-gallon cans of the sealer, having had more fence to seal than I had calculated for one can. I began with a pump-sprayer, hand-charged, and found that I was getting too much over-spray and loss through the gaps in the fence, so i switched to application with a five-inch brush. The brush application was most satisfactory. With a full brush, I could start at the bottom of each slat and move upward, watching the sealant run from the brush onto the fence and be quickly absorbed by the dry wood. Each slat took a bit more than one brush-full of sealant. On the shelf, the colorant had drifted to the bottom of the can, so a full stirring was needed before I could start. However, during one day's working, there was very little re-settling of the colorant, so an occasional stirring was sufficient. When I reached the bottom of the first can, I saw that a considerable sludge of colorant had stayed stuck to the bottom (about 1/8 inch thick) and had not been distributed through the solvent by the stirring. However, I don't think that was a problem because the sealant as applied had enough color. The color was not the most important feature, since the sealant penetrated the wood and did its work, darkening the dry wood satisfactorily and happily. The second can did not have the colorant sludge at the bottom, and the results of both cans were comparable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is the real deal!! I've had problems on my cedar fencing with Thompsons and Defy Premium. I was skeptical of this product until Jordan at the sales counter took the time to open each product and apply to a mixing stick. What a revelation! Four "clear" sealers are NOT clear. Only Preserva Products clear was truly clear and brought out the beautiful hues of the cedar. I would recommend this product to anyone who want's a truly clear sealer for their cedar fencing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great penetrating oil for decks I've tried them all...this is the best! This product penetrates and seal wood surfaces quickly and evenly. I wouldn't use anything else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has a good color, and really penetrates! I used this product on a large sheet of plywood, which may not be an ideal surface to try it on, but I wanted to see just how much color it would add to otherwise untreated wood. The color is good; and overnight it has dried pretty nicely; since I do like the color, and it was relatively easy to apply, I'm giving it 4 stars; only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because of the smell. Very strong, very long-lasting, too, I'm afraid. But given the final appearance, I'd still recommend it.
