Answer: 
Preserva Wood can be applied as low as 50 degrees F and as high as 80-90 degrees F, depending on the circumstances. On the low end, moisture is probably a bigger concern than temperature. If the wood is dry and readily absorbs the stain, then our oil based penetrating stain and sealer can even be applied as low as 40 degrees F. Wet wood does not absorb the stain properly and can lead to over-application Read More
Preserva Wood can be applied as low as 50 degrees F and as high as 80-90 degrees F, depending on the circumstances. On the low end, moisture is probably a bigger concern than temperature. If the wood is dry and readily absorbs the stain, then our oil based penetrating stain and sealer can even be applied as low as 40 degrees F. Wet wood does not absorb the stain properly and can lead to over-application and poor penetration. Exposure to air is what cures the oils, so the actual daily high temperature is not that important for drying. Allow at least 48 hours. On the high end, the temperature of the wood is what's important! Hot wood will cause the solvent to flash off and the stain will not penetrate into the wood properly. In warm weather, try to stain early, in the cool of the day, so the stain has time to penetrate into the wood. Try to avoid direct sunlight when possible, and remove any excess stain that has not penetrated into the wood within 20 minutes.

Answer: 
Oil based products are not banned anywhere in the United States, including California. Certain states, including California require "low VOC" stains that are 250 VOC or below (25% solvent or less). Other 250 VOC states are included in LADCO in the upper Midwest and OTC on the upper East Coast. The only area with more stringent requirements is the SCAQMD in Southern California, which requires 100 VOC Read More

Other 250 VOC states are included in LADCO in the upper Midwest and OTC on the upper East Coast. The only area with more stringent requirements is the SCAQMD in Southern California, which requires 100 VOC (10% solvent). Preserva Wood is supplied in all areas. If your local Home Depot does not stock Preserva Wood, then the Customer Service desk can place a "special order" for you and it will be delivered to the store. If you live outside of California, then you can easily order Preserva Wood on HomeDepot.com Read Less

Can the surface be covered with latex based stain at a later date

June 24, 2016
Answer: 
If you apply Preserva Wood and eventually wanted to apply a water based latex product, the Preserva Wood would have to be removed by either stripping or sanding the wood (or both). Water based products will not bond to surfaces that are not properly prepared. A surface previously treated with an oil based product, like Preserva Wood, would not bond properly to a water based latex.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It Works Cleaned a bench I've had for over thirteen years then applied the Oil-based clear penetrating stain and sealer. I must say I was delighted with the out come. In fact it worked so well until I am doing my gate to my back yard. The clean-up was so easy, just a little soap and water cleaned the brush. I've never used a product with easy use and clean-up. May 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice sealer! I got this clear sealer to seal a variety of small outdoor sheds. It went on very nicely on every surface. It dried smooth and clear. So far, it seems to be fairly rain-resistant. Wood needs a LOT of sealing here in the Rockies because of the rain, wind, snow, and sun at 9400 feet. The proof of this sealer's lasting value will be more apparent in another 6 months, so I'll try to get back here to post at that time. June 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Avoid at all costs Applied this stuff when it was 75 degrees Fahrenheit outside. The afternoons reached 87 to 90 degrees for 3 weeks. The stuff is still tacky only parts of it have dried. It rubs right off (see the attached image). My porch is covered in bugs, dirt, leaves, pet hair and whatever else blows around a backyard. I've used other products which had a similar problems after application but each time the chemicals have cured. Not so with this stuff. September 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Superior, high quality product for harsh seasonal climate I use this product on my boat dock at Lake Tahoe every Spring to restore and protect it from the harsh extreme climate changes, ranging from intense direct summer sun to winter accumulated snow and ice. Follow manufacturer directions using bleach mixture to eliminate any mold or mildew prior to application, and wipe away excess product afterward or the surface will remain tacky for awhile. This product is outstanding. April 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Does not last at all. I installed this per directions on a new cedar deck. Within a few months, the deck started turning black. Now I need to strip all of it off the deck (700 sq ft) to put something decent on it. April 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very disappointed We built a new cedar deck May 2014 and stained it with this sealer. Shortly after staining we noticed the areas that would get water on them started turning black. Once it started to rain any area that was exposed to rain turned black. We contacted the company and were told to use bleach and water. This actually did clear it up but this is a large deck and it is not something we should have to do after six months. I emailed pictures to the company and was told that it had to be something else because they had never had this happen. They suggested pollen or something else but we have neighbors next to us that are not having this problem. I am attaching a picture because you have to see it to believe it. Remember this is only a seven month old deck. At this point this is no reflection on Home Depot as we have not contacted them yet. That is our next step. January 7, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Totally UN-impressed I purchased Preserva wood for a customers project based on positive reviews from Pacific Northwest customers. The product went on well and looked great. FOR About a Month. After 9 months it looks like the wood was never treated. The color is fading and the surface is roughing up just like untreated wood. The product did not protect it did not preserve. It was a poor choice. I now have to go back to my customer and re-treat their items on my time and my dime. Even the areas that were not in direct sunlight look as if they were never treated. October 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good oil-based clear wood sealer (based on years of use) I have been using this product for quite a few years now to protect the wood decks on a couple of flat-bed trailers I own. In my opinion, oil-based stains just hold up better than water-based stains over time. I usually treat my decks every year, and so far every new deck I have used these on has held up well. It is worth noting, however, that despite being clear, my new decks have turned very dark (almost black) over time. That could be mostly dirt build-up, as I don't clean them with a pressure-washer before treatment (as I would if this were a house deck I was trying to keep pretty). How much of this product you use will depend a lot on how dry the wood is. My procedure is to apply the stain to a fairly small area, then apply a second coat to any place where it has all soaked in, and then wipe up any excess 10-15 minutes later. I can do two coats on two trailers in about 2/3 of a gallon on my trailers where I started doing this when the wood was new. However, I also owned a trailer where the wood was quite dry & weathered when I started this. That deck didn't deteriorate much more once I started using this stain, but it soaked up well over 1 gallon each year on that trailer alone. So if you are treating quite dry and weathered wood, be prepared to use a lot more product. As with any oil-based paint or stain, be careful with your cleanup and disposal of products. I got sloppy once with my oil-soaked paper towels and found them smoldering, so I know that spontaneous combustion is a very real risk if you don't properly dispose of your oil-soaked products.
