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.

The CLEAR product that you used is formulated to protect your wood from moisture damage, while allowing the wood to age naturally over time. The label on the CLEAR says that it will allow the wood to "gray" naturally. If color retention is your objective, we suggest that you use one of the tinted versions of Preserva Wood.

The CLEAR product that you used is formulated to protect your wood from moisture damage, while allowing the wood to age naturally over time. The label on the CLEAR says that it will allow the wood to "gray" naturally. If color retention is your objective, we suggest that you use one of the tinted versions of Preserva Wood. Our transparent stains are very lightly pigmented, to retain color and enhance the natural beauty of the wood, while providing additional UV protection. You cannot re-apply stain again in 3 months. You should allow the deck to weather for at least 1 year to 18 months and then give it a good cleaning with a detergent based cleaner. At that time, if small droplets of water cast upon a dry deck are absorbed into the wood, then you can apply a very light application of one of our tinted stains for color retention. Read Less

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

Answer (1)

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.

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 12 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 Good Outdoor Protection for Wood I recently built a serving table for our outside BBQ area out of pallets and common Pine 2x6's. In order to protect that wood from the elements here in SE Arizona (Sun and Monsoon Rains!), I used this product. It's a good thing, too, because the afternoon that I put it out for a BBQ, we had some of our monsoon rains! The water beaded up and was repelled where this product was used. Good proof of its ability to protect against water. Like a champ! Now, I just have to finish treating the pallets, too, when we get a sunny spell. August 5, 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 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 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 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 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 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
