Q:How many years does the stain & protection last if applied to new redwood fence?
by|Nov 1, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Rubicon Red is a semi-transparent stain, so it has more pigment and longer protection. On the first application, you can expect 2-4 years before you clean and re-treat. On the second application, you can expect 3-5 years before you clean and re-treat. The range is based on exposure to the sun. The more sun exposure you have on the fence, the sooner you will have to re-treat. For example, Northern exposures typically last longer than Southern exposures.

    Q:Hi I am building an outdoor shower with redwood posts and panels. I like to use this stain, but is it toxic to human skin contact?
    by|Sep 24, 2022
    2 Answers
    Answer This Question

    A:  The liquid stain contains some solvent, so you should avoid getting the stain on your skin. Once applied to wood, the stain soaks in and cures as the solvent evaporates. Once the stain is cured, it is inert, which would not be toxic.

    by|Oct 4, 2022

      A:  This is an oil based product and will therefore cure rather slowly. I would expect that once cured, it should be relatively safe? Expect a few days to fully cure out.

        Q:I am staining my patio covering. I notice the label does not say sealer. Do I need/should buy a sealer also?
        by|Aug 30, 2020
        2 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  No. If your deck has no previous coatings, you make need to apply two coats. Stay with oil based products.

        by|Jul 23, 2021

        A:  At the bottom of the Preserva Wood label it says "Penetrating Oil Stain and Sealer". You do not need to apply a sealer over Preserva Wood.

            I bought this to stain my wooden trailer and an outdoor table. Being oil-based I know it will outlast latex "stain" which is really just paint. Also, the wood grain looks really nice now. Wood buy again.

            First time using penetrating oil and stain. My gazebo absorbs so much of this stuff I applied three layers. I hope this lasts for more than a year or else I’m going to use paint.

            TIME TO GET THOSE JOBS DONE
            I have let a few area's of my wooden decking and porches go without updating the protection for way too long. Though I just used this on a small porch I will go out and use it on the decking around an outdoor shed. This Preserva product is a thin stain with sealant and I got it in an color called Rubicon Red. It's oil based so I brushed it on with a cheaper brush because I hate clean-up and just would rather throw away the brush. It was not so dark as to cover the stains and years of mistreatment I allowed this porch rarely used to go under, but it's only there for insurance purposes. As you can see by the pictures if I keep up with a yearly routine that this porch will last forever. It gives just the right amount of cover if you are like me and want to see the natural grains show through. I wish I'd had treated this ten years ago. What a simple product to apply by brush and I imagine if you have a large deck coverage pad would be even easier.

            Best product I ever used on log's
            This product has held upper better then anything I have used over the last 50 years, when I find a store that sells this product I will be buying more of it. The color has held up outstanding & the protection it has provided to the wood is the best. I would recommend this product to everyone. Home Depot 2 years ago gave me 2 free gallons and I am now willing to pay for this product. I can't say enough on how good of product this is.

              This stain (color) is by far my favorite. The product is a little messy to use because it’s so thin and runny but the end result on raw fence boards is beautiful
