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.

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.

Cedar roof shingle preservation

Is this product suitable for cedar roof shingles? Looking for a product to protect the shingles from UV but still allow them to absorb water and breathe.
Asked by: matt
Preserva Wood works very well on all exterior wood, including cedar roof shingles. Preserva Wood oil based stain and sealer soaks into the shingles, providing complete protection. When the sealant cures, the flexible film allows the shingles to expand and contract, while protecting them from UV and moisture damage. The transparent oxide reflective pigments in our stain provide superior UV protection, while giving the wood a beautiful, natural appearance. Preserva Wood can be easily applied to wood shingles with a pump sprayer and a brush.

Customer Reviews

5 gal. Oil-Based Cedar Penetrating Stain and Sealer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 11.
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.

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 5 out of 5 by from Seals very well I got this just in time to seal up my fence in the back before we had a series of blizzards. It goes on smoothly and easily. It penetrates deeply and weathered these heavy storms extremely well. We are very happy with the look of the fence both before and after the storms. Time will tell how long it will last, but so far, so good. I plan to buy more next spring for the deck and our other fence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stain ever! Been using Preserveawood for several years now after two other stain products. Easy to use; lasts the season (and we have some pretty harsh winters where we live!). Just be sure not to apply too thick. That creates problems. Follow the directions and you should be very happy!
