Can this product be spray painted over a large quantity of wood beams and joists?

We are building a large floor that will have a crawl space. Although wood won't be underground, there will be very high level of humidity under there. To save time, could we just spray paint the product over the floor before putting the sheetings over?

Yes, just do so liberally. Since it is so thin, it will likely drip all over. Plastic on the area below will allow you to we capture it and use a foam brush to force the solution into cracks and crevices

Painting over CopperCoat without Primer

This question is from 5-gal. CopperCoat Green Below Ground Wood Preservative
Asked by
Oregon
Read all my Q&A
August 30, 2015
Can I dispense with the oil-based primer before painting over Copper Coat? How badly would adherence be compromised?

The reason for asking is that I plan to paint with a DeckOver-type of thick penetrating water-based paint that normally adheres best to old wood WITHOUT a primer (this coating has its own priming).

The way I see it is you have three (3) choices -
1) use this, with an oil-based primer, even if you mix it with oil-based primer (as I did to reduce a step and increase the viscosity for overhead application on a pergola structure)

2) Don't use this at all and just apply the mentioned coating - I have two friends who each have done this to a pool deck and a shaded porch. Each one seems happy with the results but the wood was 'treated" but old. It's a product by the name of Restore.
3) Call the manufacturer of the product you are considering. The product may have a formulation that allows the material to deeply penetrate the wood and bind to the lignin in the wooden boards.

Answer: 
nope. It will peel. You'd be better off to leave it with nothing.
Do it all at one time and toss everything away if you don't like the cleanup. Otherwise, you'll be making a lot MORE work for yourself.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A longer life for exterior wood. This product is one of the best wood preservatives I have ever used. I highly recommend Woodlife® for all applications where the wood may come in contact with the Earth. Unfortunately, you will have to order online as it is not a stock item and your local Home Depot. Where I want the project to look aged I mix 50/50 Woodlife® and black latex paint. When dry it will provide a weathered gray appearance and greatly extent the life of the wood. I have also done the same using red latex to offer a weathered redwood aspect. Application is easy using a brush, roller, airless spray or dip. Regardless I highly suggest that you use latex or rubber gloves. Cleanup is a breeze using soap and water. October 6, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Won't know if it's any good until I see how it stands up for awhile. It goes on easy, like water, and the smell lasts for quite awhile. Have to wait and see if it holds up. June 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good bargain Great product. If used as directed the smell is not an issue. The insects hate the smell also. Also it is not a stain. The green is just the color of the product. It helps tell you where you've already treated the wood May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looks good Product applied easily, and looks to be doing as it said it would. With the smell of it before it drys it should deter most anything. March 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for fence posts and wood fences. I used to use old fir logs for fence posts untreated for a quick fence but after awhile they rotted at ground level. but I put up a fence around my garden using 7 foot lengths of Doug fir for post and braces and soaked in this stuff they not only look good and rustic but they're still holding up strong even the partly rotted brace. It's good stuff, but the smell stays with you awhile. I'd suggest wearing gloves and coveralls when using it. January 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very satisfied with this product Goes on easily and penetrates well. Bought it to increase protection of already treated, non-ground contact wood. Takes three or four hours to dry so give yourself some time. I ordered the five gallon pail but this stuff covers so well that I could have been O.K. with one gallon. I expect that this preservative will really do the job January 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Preliminary evaluation Bought this to use next summer and it will take about ten plus years to see if it is affective. The product has a good reputation though. December 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I wouldn't think twice about ordering this again I poured it in a container to apply it to exterior posts and beams. Its a blue dye looking color in the container. I applied it all over and was very impressed. There was a slight green ting however not even close to the picture on the container. I think pressure treated wood has a greener color then this when applied to rough cut hemlock. It doesn't smell to good (even a couple weeks later), but I didn't buy it to to smell it. I am pretty confident this is exactly what I wanted in order to preserve the wood. I probally wouldn't use this on a residential building. I used it on a free standing structure all above ground. I have footings in the ground. (a place to park my tractors). I don't think I would want this within 30 feet of my house because of the smell (which isn't super bad). October 6, 2015
