Product Overview

Preserva Wood Oil-Based Penetrating Stain and Sealer is ideal for beautifying and protecting exterior wood surfaces such as fences, decks and unpainted wood siding. This oil based stain penetrates deeply into your wood, giving superior protection, especially in harsh environments that cycle between sun and snow. The formula's organic oils protect the wood from water damage, while natural reflective pigments provide superior protection against UV damage. Pacific redwood has more pigment for better protection, while showing as a pale red color on wood.

Customer Questions & Answers

preserva wood is not drying since yesterday afternoon

Should we now wipe up the excess? It is tacky
Asked by: Anne
I think this is normal, depending on the type of wood. On some wood, it still feels tacky after almost a month. I never wiped off excess. It is for outdoor applications to -protect- the wood. The thicker the coat, the more protection you get. In my case I'm staining a fence. But if you were staining a deck, which you have to walk on, there could be an issue walking on the sticky finish. It should absorb into the wood in time, and eventually stop being sticky, I hope.

No, I do not want to strip all if other options open. Info is WV, close by) still can sell oil based stain. Flood does not seem to make oil based now? What can I buy & where? Zip 21561

Preserva wood would make it look good, but it is oil based.

How long does this need to dry before it gets wet?

I want to apply it saturday but its supposed to rain sunday.
Asked by: Shane
On some wood I found it dries to a sticky film. I don't think there's any problem getting it wet with water, even though it is still sticky. Just like waxing your car, the water would be repelled and sit on top of the sticky layer of Preserva Wood, but not go through it. But if I just applied a -fresh coat- of Preserva Wood, I would keep it away from rain for a few hours or even overnight. Preserva Wood requires the wood to be dry when it is applied, so that the wood will absorb the Preserva Wood (that is on the instructions on the can). So if you get wet too soon, the wood might absorb the rain instead of absorbing the Preserva Wood.

Can preserva wood stain Redwood be used on interior application

Asked by: jason
Preserva Wood is designed primarily as an exterior stain for fences, decks and wood sided homes. If you are using a redwood or cedar board, similar to a deck or fence board, for an interior application, then Preserva Wood can be used. If you are staining a hardwood for an interior application, then we suggest you purchase a stain specifically formulated for that application. If you do use Preserva Wood for an interior application, please ensure that you have proper ventilation in order to remove any solvent odor.

So I asked them what color and they said Pacific Redwood. This product is awesome. I purchased an $18, 1.5 spray pump at HD that was next to this can. It came with a fan sprayer as well. Super easy to use. I applied in overlapping coats. Also tried light and coming back with another coat after doing one panel. The results were the same. It looks very natural. My only complaint, it smells very strong.

Using it on my 160ft long fence. The Pacific Redwood color gets lots of complements from my neighbors, who walk by admiring the fence. The fence boards soak it up. On less absorbant wood, like the stringers on top of the fence, it leaves a thick, sticky coating, still sticky after a month. This is a positive - it means the wood is protected by the Preserva Wood. One negative might be how it interacts with plastic wood, or wood filler. I'm using stainable wood filler, at various place on the fence. Sometimes the Preserva Wood causes the wood filler to shrivel up. I haven't solved this problem yet.

The color is beautiful and the grain in the redwood shows through, which is just what I wanted. We are heading into winter in Colorado, so I hope it will preserve my wood in our inclement weather. I now have in my back yard a 5-gal pail full of water and rags used by my painter. He told me they need to soak for a week before they can be safely thrown away. But what should I do with the water in the pail? It's surely toxic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it!! I loved it. I like the dark color and I know is protecting the wood, it soaked in right away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great! After cleaning the filthy redwood deck and allowing the deck to dry for 3 to 4 days, I used this redwood deck stain and sealer that's oil based. I used a 2 gallon garden sprayer and roller and a 4" brush for around the edges for 1200 square feet of deck. It was my first time ever staining and sealing a redwood deck. I did alot of research on websites and talked to some Home Depot employee's on the application process and it went on very smoothly. The Pacific redwood stain look's beautiful! I'll definatly use this product again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Preservawood, Penefin Duckback, I use them all. I have little problems with any of the products I mention in my title. I use all of them and can say I like the smell of Penefin best, other then that, it comes down to colors. Preservawood is the best value. They apply the same, they have equal longevity in similar conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked very well I used the redwood stain on brand new redwood material. I used a 1.5 gallon sprayer to apply the product to a vertical fence, and followed wet spots with a paint brush. According to the directions on the can, I over applied this at least by 2 times. At first it looked kind of fakey red, with too much red color. Since I over applied it, it took about 4 days to dry with temperatures between 50 F and 74 F. However, my second attempt I got the application rate correct, and it dried in less than 24 hours. Every day it looks closer to a beautiful, slightly darker version of the original wood. I am very glad I got the red, as it adds the right amount of color. It just gets better and better every day. I am going to coat my deck railings next. Not only would I recommend it, I'm using it again. I have not washed the sprayer between uses; all I did was unplug the nozzle every time. I will throw away the sprayer at the end, as I can't see it ever being clean again. Don't get this on clothes, and don't use cloths if you can avoid it, because they will never dry nor ever be clean again (although my wife did get small spots out of a sweat shirt using stain-stick and washing immediately). I can not speak to the "value" because it's only been 2 weeks, but right now it looks fantastic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the better redwood stains This is a medium semi transparent stain mildly red redwwod stain with that is very good especially for newer woods or any wood not already grayed out. It has a flattish surface that renders a moderately even colored natural looking redwood appearance. I thought it looked more natural than superdeck which had a more shiny surface. My fence really soaked up the stain.It looks good. I applied with a pump sprayer and that worked best. I tried a Wagner paint gun but you really need a full stain mask if you do that and its not worth it. This would be hard to just brush on.
