Q:I'm sealing a cedar bathtub surround. If I can open windows and vent for a couple days, would this be the proper sealant. If not, which would you recommend?

Answer This Question

A:  Hi there, thanks for the question. We don't recommend using our products in areas that can be submerged in water such as around tubs. We also don't recommend using our Exterior Wood Stains on interior projects. I'd recommend checking with your local home improvement store for an appropriate product. Have a great day! -Ronald

    Q:RE #ST-146 What is the effect of using one thicker coat as opposed to two thin coats?
    by|Sep 9, 2022
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Marty, thanks for the question. Applying 2 thin coats will help to ensure the right amount of stain is applied, It will also provide a smoother finish. If the stain is applied too thick it can cause issues with the dry time and cause issues with the stain adhering to the surface. Have a great day! -Ronald

            Enough tint without covering all the wood grain
            This had to be done at the store, because they only had a gallon size, and I needed a quart. The clerk did amazing, and got exactly what I needed. It has enough tint to cover the more damaged areas of wood, and add a layer of protection for weather.

            Looks great on our 25 year old fence
            Easy to install with a garden sprayer. Makes our old fence look like new. Color is not orange but more on the brown side. Where I recently replace some of the fence planks you can see that those planks did not take the stain as well. We back rolled immediately after spraying to remove any drips and runs. Saved us over $17,000 by not installing a new vinyl fence!

              Great color and look
              This product turned out great. Be patient you are going to need to use two coats. We also primed the surface which I think helped. Took a little over a month with many sessions of painting. Worth it! The color is very close to a piece of cedar wood.

                The product went on fairly smooth. It was mostly able to cover in 1 coat but the deck boards took 3 coats. It was hard to work fast enough before it started to dry which lead to some unevenness in the color.
