Application Method

Mix contents well before use, stir contents often during use. Stir thoroughly, as pigment concentrations may settle. DO NOT THIN THIS PRODUCT. If using multiple pails of stain, mx them for consistent color uniformity. Apply using a brush, roller, stain mitt, stain applicator pad, or sprayer. Apply one coat by fully saturating the wood surface with a generous amount of stain. DO NOT ALLOW THE STAIN TO POOL OR PUDDLE ON FLAT SURFACES. Remove or spread out any stain left on the wod surface after 30-60 minutes. EXPERT Stain & Seal self levels on vertical surfaces, while back brushing may be required on horizontal surfaces. Using a dry cloth, remove puddled or excess stain after application from flat, horizontal surfaces. If not removed it may leave a shiny film on the surface, delay drying time, and cause premature failure. 

EXPERT Stain & Seal's penetrating oils go deep into the wood, drying slowly for several days after application. Finished color can take up to several weeks for true color. DO NOT walk on stained surfaces for 24 hours, allowing 72 hours for light traffic. 

Questions & Answers

Have a Question?

Ask a Question
  • How long should I avoid staining if it might rain in the forecast

    Our stains are rain safe on fences after about 12 hours. We recommend 24-36 hours of dry weather after staining for flat surfaces like decks.

  • What is the ideal application temperature

    Since our stains are a penetrating oil, there are no temperature restrictions. We are dependent on moisture content of the wood. We recommend the wood having a 13% moisutre content and for the wood to NOT be frozen immediately before, during, or immediately after application.

  • Does this product clean up with soap and water?

    It should if you prewet the surface with soap and water. Definitely do not let it dry. Expert Stain & Seal Degreaser works better.

  • Is better to get a sealer that has some color to it as opposed to a clear sealer?

    It depends on the age of your fence. Newer fences should use a semi-transparent or transparent while older, rougher fences should use a semi-solid.
