No other stain on the market cleans up as easy.
A quality wood finish is the most important aspect of any exterior wood project. Sanding is usually not necessary when applying a coating to an outdoor structure. In addition to the beauty it provides, a wood finish, rather it be paint or stain, is a must in order to protect the wood from rot and decay. Apply a coating that will not peel, crack, blister or promote mildew growth. Plastic is not a viable alternative. Stick with real lumber. Temperature needs to be above freezing before applying any exterior coating. Longest lasting beauty and protection available in an easy applicator. When building with “seconds” or “used” wood, a solid stain is probably going to be your best choice of wood finish. When building with new wood, especially wood that has high grain detail, a semi-transparent stain is desired in order to show the natural wood grain. Most new wood will lose most of its natural wood color in just a few short months. Once the natural wood color is gone, the sun and rain will take its toll on unfinished wood. Contrary to common belief, it is not recommended to let wood “season” or “dry-out” before applying a coat of wood finish. A quality water-borne wood finish can be applied the same day the structure is built. Automatic sprinklers should be adjusted prior to staining in order to eliminate water that will spray constantly on the fence. Many people forget to adjust the sprinklers, and because they only come on at night, the damage occurs before they really notice it. A low-luster, matte sheen with outstanding washability. Oil-based stains should not be applied to wet or “green” wood. But, in most cases a oil-based stain should not be applied to new wood or wood that has not been kiln dried in the first place. 5 minute fence stain is the easiest wood finish to apply to new wood. In fact, you can finish 600 square feet in just five minutes. For maximum praise, make sure your spouse isn't home when you apply this coating. Two coats may be applied for a darker, richer look to the wood.
