Q:I'm building Adirondack chairs, can I use an oil based polyurethane finish over this stain?
by|Aug 29, 2022

Answer This Question

A:  Yes! Only oil-based products can be used over our oil-based wood stain. Water based products will not bond properly. We recommend several days of air drying prior to applying a urethane top coat.

      Q:How long is this designed to last on a deck? Usually this is listed in the specs.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Preserva Wood Cedar-Fir tint should last 2-4 years on your deck, depending on exposure. More exposure (sunlight, weather, etc) results in needing to re-treat your deck sooner. You should clean the deck on an annual basis with a detergent based cleaner and evaluate the need for a light coating of stain, as necessary.

          1 Answer
          Answer This Question

          A:  Preserva Wood is a one coat only product, so we would caution you against applying a second coat. You should only apply as much stain as will be readily absorbed into the wood, removing any excess that does not penetrate. If excess stain cures on the surface of the wood, it would be shiny and/or tacky. Clean the wood on an annual basis and only apply more stain when it will easily soak into the wood.

              Used the Preserva on the roof of our gazebo. Original finish faded years ago, the shake roof looked dry rotted.After 2 thorough application with a sprayer the roof now has a much darker and fresh look. Very happy with the outcome.Oil based stain does have a strong odor but knew that going into the job.

              This stain is like colored water. No comparison to BEHR or CABOT oil based stain. I used over 4 gallons on two 4` x 8` sheets of rough cut fir siding just to get the color dark enough. You get what you pay for.

              Response from Preserva ExpertJul 16, 2019
              Preserva Wood Cedar Fir is a very light tint! If you are considering this tint, you should brush the product out on your wood and allow it to dry overnight. This way you will know if you are happy with the color before you proceed (suggested in instructions on the can). We are concerned about the 4 gallons of product that you used on 64 square feet of siding. Since the spread rate is 200 square feet per gallon on rough cut siding, you should have been able to treat about 800 square feet with 4 gallons. If you have over-application problems as a result, please contact us at 800-797-2537 and we will be happy to assist you.
