Customer Questions & Answers

When I have to reapply this can I just clean the deck and apply it or do I have to strip the deck? How many coats have to be applied?

Asked by: stillme
According to the directions, and according to my experience, you need to test the current coating. If water beads on it, then it needs to be stripped before re-coating. This is an oil base coating which has to be absorbed by the wood. If water beads on the old coating, then the new coating will not be absorbed into the wood. ( Latex coatings sit on top of the wood). Don't use Deckbrite...use Deckstrip. I used Deckstrip with a power washer and it completely stripped the old coating. Re-coating after that worked beautifully. If you re-coat on a surface that beads water you'll have a mess. The coating will sit on top of the old coating, take a long time to dry, and will not be absorbed by the wood. Again, according to directions and experience, you only apply one coat. I used a deck brush. Dip it into a 5 gallon bucket of coating, drip it onto the surface, and work it into the wood with the (stiff) deck brush, by brushing the coating INTO the wood. If you put on a second coat, you'll have the same mess described above. Hope this helps

Can I use it over TWP Semi-Transparent Oil Based stain

Asked by: MIke
old stains MUST be removed before applying new stain. I suggest you go to the Wolman website and download the instructions. Oil base stains are designed to go into the wood, not just stick to the surface like latex paints do. I use the Wolmans deck stripper to remove the old finish before applying a new finish. If you put a little water on the deck and it beads, you cannot put a new stain on it. It has to be removed. All of this is explained in the instructions. I have added "after stripping and after staining" photos

how much will 5 gallons cover....I have a 24 by 24 garage with hemlock siding

Asked by: scotty
One gallon of Wolman F&P Finish and Preservative covers approximately 150-200 square feet. However, this number varies with the type of wood and porosity. This being said a 5-gallon pail will cover about 750-1000 square feet.

How much area does 1 gal cover?

I have a 12' x 16' foot deck and I am wondering if 5 gallons is too much of this product.
Asked by: Chris
You will have some left over and you can use it for the next coat when needed

5 gal. F&P Natural Exterior Wood Stain Finish and Preservative is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for wood siding & T-111 plywood! - I'm a repeat buyer My first application on raw & properly prepped (bleach & water sprayed on, to open the wood pores) Hemlock board & batten siding lasted 8 years! My neighbor has had to do his twice in the same time period, using another popular brand's semi-transparent stain. My siding had accumulated mildew and a little graying of the color the last few years on the south & west sides of the building, so I recently stripped the remaining finish, mildew and graying of the wood by spraying/wetting the siding with a mixture of 50% chlorine bleach and 50% water. This made the siding look like fresh lumber. I let it dry for a week and applied the new coating (a moderate coat) with a hand pump type sprayer, working a 6 ft by 16 ft area at a time. This was followed immediately with a medium nap paint roller on a extendable paint stick (and paint brush, where needed) to distribute wetter areas into drier areas and to force the oil finish into the wood pores. After 1 or 2 hours a thin coat was sprayed again over the first coat and this was distributed again with the roller & brush. This second, "wet on wet" coating (recommended by Wolman) is to saturate any areas that absorbed the finish too deeply, looking like dry spots. This second coat maximizes the life of the finish. I did the second coating on only the south & west sides, as the north & east sides are shaded and protected from the sun at all times. The finish looks wet or shiny for a few days and drys (or absorbs) to a flat finish. It shows the grain and knots the same as an oil stain on wood furniture does. Their "Natural" color tone I used resulted in a color similar to an old penny, or unfinished western red cedar, or cigarette tobacco...sort of a reddish-brown color when in the can and on the siding. I did mix in additional mildewcide to the stain, even though Wolman puts twice the mildewcide of other brands in their finish. Probably overkill, but I did this the first time too. I mix the stain and mildewcide in the can thoroughly with a paint mixer (has paddles) attached to a drill, and immediately pour it through a "painters sock" (fine mesh paint strainer bag) into the sprayer. I shake the sprayer every time I had to pump more air into it (about every 3 minutes), to keep everything mixed well. Every time I would refill the sprayer, I would first remix what was remaining in the pail with the drill paint mixer and then pour it into the sprayer. I will now do a quick rinse of the siding with a much weaker bleach & water solution every year or two, to rinse away any mildew or slight graying, and apply a fresh thin coat over the siding if any raw wood is noticed afterwards (as recommended by Wolman). This should extend the life of the finish to should prevent future stripping off of the finish entirely every 6-8 years (maybe never again?)...we'll see how this "maintenance" works. Strangers and distant neighbors have made a point of stopping by to ask what brand I used...and commented how they loved the color and overall finished appearance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the results I've used Wolman stains many times over the past 20 years, in Portland, Oregon and now Missouri. It's so easy to apply, once you've properly prepared the wood. And the results are beautiful. You MUST, MUST,MUST clean NEW and especially PRESSURE TREATED wood. I use their DeckBrite cleaner and let dry thoroughly. Wood needs to be free of chemicals and pores open to accept stain. I clean with just soap and water the next Spring, reapplying on horizontal walking dries out the boards and this brings it back to almost new condition. After that reapply 2-3 years. The Natural Transparent gives a deep rich warm light brown oil stain, when it dries, and a look that is fantastic on clean dry wood describeded above. Also, I wait a few hours until it shows signs of dry and then walk on with old shoes (disposable) and wipe off excess oil (shiney spots or puddles) with old towel (disposable). Otherwise that oil will dry and leave shiney spots. The can instructions calls them shiners. They can be removed later with light hand sanding, but it's better to do it now. Good Luck

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to use and covered well. we used both a roller and brush to smooth out the puddles after we sprayed and it was very easy to do. the area covered was far larger than we anticipated so we only needed to buy another gallon to finish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Been using it over 13 years About the deck; As of 2016 it is about 17 years old, 400 sq. ft. with wood railings, 1 story above ground, CCA pressure treated wood. It is in North Jersey. We get blazing hot humid summers and wicked snowy winters. We've lived there 13 years. When we moved in the deck was gray and looked as if it had never been treated. I used the Wolmans DECKBRITE, followed instructions and used Wolmans F&P cedar colored semi-transparent stain. The difference was night and day... it was beautiful. Since then I have re-done it about every 2 to 3 years. The floor looks great for about a year, and looks OK the second year. The railings look great for about 3-4+ years. The floor beads water for up to 3 years. Every time I re-do it, I use Wolmans deck brite and a power washer. I use a stiff bristle deck brush (long handle) and splash the stain onto the deck from a bucket and use the brush to "grind" it into the wood along the grain. After about 13 years I sanded the tops of the railings to reduce "splintering".I read a zillion reviews of other products and was never convinced to try something other than Wolmans. It NEVER peels because it is an oil based stain. I don't think it's expensive. I wish it looked great for 3 to 4 years but I'm convinced nothing does. It's work, but it has kept my deck intact for many years, thus I'm satisfied with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent application and Color This product has excellent richness in color and no overlap problems. Unlike water base sealers, the linseed oilbased product disipates over time, making removal of the product evironmentally friendly. I have been using this product for several years. Because it is an oilbased sealer it will absorb into the deck based on the moisture of the wood and back wiping excess product is esential. My joy in using the product along with my customers satisfaction in look ensures I will use it as long as they will make it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! This 5 gallons covered my 15 year old, 1200 sqf deck with ease, with about 1/4 of a gallon left. I used a roller, clean up was a snap. Has a slight darker, wet appearance and dried within 12 hours. Beautiful finish. Can't beat the price and free shipping from UPS right to my front door. Since this is my first application with this product, I don't know about it's durability, but even if I need to apply it again next year I'll do it!. We live in Missouri where the weather can get extremely cold in winter and very hot in summer and no other deck treatment I've used has lasted more than 1 year. I'll see how this does and report a review next Spring. I would highly recommend this product to anyone. And by the way, very fast shipping, only 4 days from date of order. Thank you Home Depot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recomend this product I have stained my cedar sided home 3 times with a latex stain and it does not last long where the sun shines on it for long periods. This oil base seemed to penitrate the cedar and I am very please with the look. I used the natural color witch darkened the sideing and am well pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Stain, beautiful color, Goes on easily Wolmans F&P Stain is so easy to use. I have stained my Gazebo with it and my fence. I have gotten compliments saying it looks like a professional did the work. I have tried other stains and they went on awful. I will only use F&P for now on. The color natural does go on darker than what you might expect for natural color, but it does lighten some over time and regardless the color is rich and beautiful. My father is doing his fence next with it he loves mine so much!
