perfect for my shou sugi ban application. The stuff soaks deep into wood and dries very slowly and is not sticky. I could apply it to a new piece of shiplap -- or simply the freshly cuts ends, etc -- last minute and install it in place without mess. Bought a good quality brush, and after leaving it wet for as much as a week in a plastic bag, with one dip in new batch of preserva the brush would become soft again and ready to go. This stuff is unusual and a pleasure to put on. Apply thicker initially to ensure a good soak, then brush out smooth to remove any puddling, etc. It needs 24+ hours to dry completely, but as I say it is manipulatable very soon after application...

I'm OCD when it comes to preparing surfaces for stain, paint or other coverings. After removing tannins grime and dirt from my fence surfaces I used a paint stripper to remove what remained of the old finishes. After 24-48 hours of drying time I sanded with 60 grit sanding discs and belts using an orbital and belt sander. The resulting clean and properly prepped fencing took the stain and sealer easily with a brush. It sprinkled a little following application but by that time the wood had absorb the oil/stain and the few water droplets simply fell off. I love the look of a clear finish over redwood but the pigments in the other products help to protect from UV damage. In Utah a clear finish will last one year, a semi transparent two to three years.

    The product applies great and is overall a good product. I was able to do 1600+ sqft of fencing in less than a day. Works really well with using a pump sprayer and paint brush the runs. I had my wife go behind me with a paint brush. It says you only need to do 1 coat but I did have to go back and touch up the ares where the knots on the wood were because they soaked up more stain and left it looking slightly blotchy. Check the pictures out.

      Used this product on a brand new cedar deck last summer and over the winter it turned moldy black. I built my neighbor a deck and used it one hers and it did the same thing to hers. Power washing did nothing. Now I am faced with painting it a solid color or sanding the entire deck down again. Either way, YUK.

      A natural wood stain is designed to protect your wood from UV damage and water damage. The sun breaks down the wood and the rain washes it away. Natural oil based stains do not prevent dirt and pollen from accumulating on the surface of the wood. Dirt and pollen can cause mold and mildew to grow on the surface of the wood, especially after a long, wet winter. Clean with a mild detergent and use a 50% bleach and water solution to remove any mold and mildew. An annual cleaning is recommended when you use a natural stain on your deck. Also, if color retention is important to you, we recommend that you use a tinted product, instead of our Clear wood stain. This will help your deck to retain it's color for a longer period of time. Please call us toll free at 800-797-2537 if you have additional questions or concerns. It is doubtful that you need to either paint or sand your deck in order to restore it's natural beauty.

        I used two 5-gallon cans of the sealer, having had more fence to seal than I had calculated for one can. I began with a pump-sprayer, hand-charged, and found that I was getting too much over-spray and loss through the gaps in the fence, so i switched to application with a five-inch brush. The brush application was most satisfactory. With a full brush, I could start at the bottom of each slat and move upward, watching the sealant run from the brush onto the fence and be quickly absorbed by the dry wood. Each slat took a bit more than one brush-full of sealant. On the shelf, the colorant had drifted to the bottom of the can, so a full stirring was needed before I could start. However, during one day's working, there was very little re-settling of the colorant, so an occasional stirring was sufficient. When I reached the bottom of the first can, I saw that a considerable sludge of colorant had stayed stuck to the bottom (about 1/8 inch thick) and had not been distributed through the solvent by the stirring. However, I don't think that was a problem because the sealant as applied had enough color. The color was not the most important feature, since the sealant penetrated the wood and did its work, darkening the dry wood satisfactorily and happily. The second can did not have the colorant sludge at the bottom, and the results of both cans were comparable.
