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
  • I used a water based product on my fence about 4 years ago and it's fading pretty bad. Can this be applied over the old stain?

    EXPERT Stains cannot be applied over an exisiting water based coating, I'm sorry.

    The water based or film forming product created a barrier that oil will not penetrate. A full chemical strip and restoration would be required to apply EXPERT Stains.

  • Hello. Is this stain a 1 or 2 coat system?

    1 coat. We don't recommend applying 2 coats of EWC stain.

  • 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?

    Hi Claire, 

    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.

    Thanks and for any other questions call us at (615) 785-1861

  • Can the color "Palomino" be mixed in a semi-transparent formula or is it only for the semi-solid formula? Thanks!

    Hi Catherine, 

    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. 

    Thanks and if you want to discuss this further call (615) 785-1861!
