QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Hi, Can your Expert semi solid wood stain be applied using a sprayer? If so, does it need to be thinned out & would that make it less effective? I was originally going to use a semi transparent stain but I’d like more longevity. I’m staining a pine fence. Thanks in advance!
Expert Stain & Seal can be applied with any method. Air sprayer, brush, roller, you name it!
It's going to be hot and humid when i plan to apply this, probably in the 90s. Is it still ok to use the stain and sealer in those conditions? Or will the stain dry too fast? My fence was installed a few days ago so I need to stain soon.
You can apply EXPERT Stain & Seal when it is hot or cold outside. It may require extra mixing if it has sat in the heat.
Please make sure to clean your fence even if it is new. Eco-cleaner would be the recommended cleaner for a new fence.
What is the clean up method? What is the typical drying time to the touch? To walking on? If a second coat is needed, how long between coats? If a brush is used, what type of brush is best? Synthetic, natural bristle?
The clean-up method depends on the surface it has contaminated. Dish soap and water or our Degreaser will work great to remove it from anything non-porous.
Drying time depends on the blend and environment. Transparent and semi-transparent will be dry to the touch in 24 hours or less in the sun. Semi-solids can take a little longer, but should be around the same if excess is wiped off after application.
We generally would not recommend a second coat. One coat is all you should need if you apply the correct amount. If you want a darker shade, our stain can be applied over itself fine.
Typically, natural bristle brushes are best for oil-based stains. However, you can really apply our stain with any method as long as the surface is properly prepared.

Can the color "Palomino" be mixed in a semi-transparent formula or is it only for the semi-solid formula? Thanks!
We don't recommending mixing a semi-transparent stain and a semi-solid stain. Both have different formulations for different application requirements. Newer, smoother decking requires a semi-transparent or a transparent while older, rougher decking is more permeable and will require a semi-solid.
If you really want to, the team said it would be OK to add.

These folks were awesome from the beginning. I talked to Kurt about what I was wanting and that it was first time sealant on a new fence. He advices me beautifully and when I received the product and got it on o was very impressed. Start to finish great folks.
Easy to apply excellent stain.
Easy to work with consitent color througout regardless of amount of stain applied. Penetrates and dries quickly. Barnwood has been a popular selection for customers as well as my personal projects.
My rough cut cedar was so dry it had huge splits in it. Went on easy, wasn't puddled and was in the sun for the first 6 hours. 3 weeks later, I still get residue on my fingers. Been in the 80s here for months. Not pleased. Before buying, sales got back to me quick, after purchase, customer service hasn't responded in a week. So now I have 4 huge timbers taking up garage space waiting to fully dry. I'm afraid to install them and the rain ruins the stain.
The Semi Solid Stain and Seal looks great and applies easily, but coverage for my 35 year old screen porch is about half of what was stated, so I'm back to reorder again..
