Installed my cedar fence in april of this yr, Ordering your cedar stain, just wondering what I should clean the fence with before staining? And should I do 1 or 2 coats? Have ordered samples from you guys to help me decide on which color to use. Great option for people on the fence:) about different colors/shades.
Ecocleaner is all you will need to clean the new fence. Our stain only requires one coat. Give us a call if you have any questions.
What is the minimum temperature this can be applied in?
Anywhere above freezing, but please make sure to properly clean the fence. This can be a challenge in colder temperatures as the moisture takes longer to dry.
What is the next lightest color of Transparent Stain from CLEAR? Assuming CLEAR has no color? Is it Cedar or Natural? Hard to tell from website.
Clear has no pigment. Natural and cedar both have a little pigment for a more natural / cedar hue.
Live in Alabama with a lot of heat and humidity in the summer and the same humidity in the winters which results in a lot of mold and mildew. How does it stand up to that and what is the proper cleaning to remove it each spring? I have about 2500 sq feet to cover.
We are based out of Tennessee with very similar weather. Our stains hold up great against the harshest conditions. Oil-based stains preserve your wood regardless of the weather conditions, and can be applied in the heat of summer or the cool of winter as long as the surface is properly prepared. The surface will be rain safe after 24-48 hours after coating depending on the humidity outside.
We use no solvents to specifically ensure as much oil as possible penetrates and protects your fence and deck.
To clean, we recommend yearly cleanings with a light Ecocleaner application. Wash, apply Ecocleaner, allow to sit for 15 minutes, and rinse!
Mold and mildew won't grow on oil-based stains. If the fence is in the shade and constantly wet, there may be light surface growth that can be dealt with during your yearly cleaning.

This was our first purchase of expert stain and seal. The product self leveled and soaked it beautifully. Customer was very happy with the color. I enjoyed it much more than the other brands knowing that it was less harmful to me and it was very easy to wash off of any skin that was exposed to it!
Expert Stain and Seal is the only company I trust when I come to preserving the reputation of my fence and deck staining company. I used their stains and wood restoration products for 5 years. There has never been I problem. I'm assured, one of the many, awesome, people in the office would help sort it out, if one ever did arise.
I doing more and more fence staining these days. I started using this product about 3 years ago and wouldn't use anything else. She's people are very helpful and I usually get my order within the days. I live in north Texas so that's about 900 miles from their location.
Good quality stain easy to apply. Great customer service.
Probably the best fence stain I have ever used.
Love how my new fence came out.
That being said, be careful of where, when & how you apply it. Wind will carry over spray 100 ft. or more and is difficult if not impossible to get off porous surfaces.
I suggest calling customer service with any questions you can think of before starting your project because these people know their stuff.
Customer service & shipping are top notch.
