Coverage in square feet of Creocoat

Per gallon, how many square feet can be covered? Wood to be covered is fir.
Asked by: dlf
Wolman Woodlife CreoCoat Black Wood Preservative has a recommended coverage of 150-200 square feet per gallon. This can be affected by the wood type and how porous the wood is.

Can this product be sprayed with the airless paint gun

Asked by: Scooter
No, Wolman CreoCoat Below Ground Wood Preservative cannot be sprayed through an airless gun because it cannot be thinned as recommended and will affect performance. Alternatively, you can spray this product through a pump up or HVLP sprayer if you so choose

Asked by: steve
Happy to help, Steve! Wolman Woodlife CreoCoat will last years because it is a preservative and penetrates deep into the wood surface. We do not recommend painting over the product for performance reasons.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Freshen up old posts, fences and ties I bought a 5 gallon bucket from Home Depot, and a one gallon can from another vendor. We needed to freshen up some reclaimed railroad ties used as landscaping timbers. This product worked well. We mostly sprayed and rolled it, using a common garden sprayer. The label says not to spray it, but I've seen other postings where users did spray. It does not spray great, but a sprayer allows you get lots of product on the wood. The roller works it in and spreads it out. I also strictly rolled a large area of horizontally placed ties. I got a LOT of mileage out of a one gallon can by rolling it only. So, if you want the best coverage - I'd say to roll it. If you want quick coverage and less work, I suggest spraying and back-rolling. I just threw away the sprayer and roller pads - didn't even attempt to clean them. However, the product easily wiped off of the roller frames, which surprised me. Once applied, the product looks great and really restores the look of weathered ties.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keystone The product was easy to apply and it adsorbed into wood very well. Over all it is a very good product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great My railroad ties look almost like new. Easy to apply and clean-up is a breeze. Only time will tell if it performs. If it helps my retaining wall last longer than its predecessor I won't be the guy replacing it.
