Armstrong Clark Stain 1 Gallon

$38.99
Choose Stain Color:

Armstrong-Clark's deck and siding wood stain makes use of conditioning oils that part from the drying oils in the formula. The nondrying oils penetrate into the wood and take the place of the wood's diminishing natural oils. This process revives and restores wood.

The drying oils stay on the wood surface and lock in the conditioning oils to produce a barrier that is dry to the touch. Armstrong's deck and siding wood stain contain vegetable oils in addition to transparent pigments, solvents, mildewcides and water repellents.

  • Application can be done in direct sunlight and on hot days. If the first coat of stain penetrates within 30 minutes an additional coat may be applied for extra protection.
  • Applies easily by roller, brush, garden sprayer or airless sprayer. During spraying - going back over with a brush or roller will help give a more even appearance. After 24 hours any remaining puddles or glossy spots can be removed using a dry rag.
  • Older wood is reconditioned by deep penetrating nondrying oils.
  • Drying oils lock in the conditioning oils while pigments and water repellents lock out moisture and UV damage.
  • Armstrong wood stain is compliant with all environmental standards.
  • Does not contain any offensive odors.

Coverage Area

Armstrong-Clark Deck and Siding Stain applies at 150-200 sq ft per gallon. Depending on wood porosity, actual coverage will vary.

Important

*We do not guarantee stain colors as they will vary widely depending on the wood type, age of wood, prepping of wood, and application. Small samples are available at top.

    Hello,
    I'm hoping to purchase one of your stains for a cedar deck in Nova Scotia Canada.

    Do you know how long it would take for shipping?

    Thanks

    Would this be the proper stain to coat new tongue and groove 1x4" covered front porch, would you recommend coating all sides before installation?
    The product we have is Blue Star 100% certified Malaysian Hardwood tongue and groove 1x4" x8' boards, we are replacing existing mahogany tongue and groove floor on the porch

    Hi, I have a deck that is 8yrs. old, and has been stained approx. 3 times. I just had an addition, and need something that would cover both stained & not stained, and turn out to be the same color. Can you help ?

    AC cannot be applied over a stain of a different brand. You would have to strip or sand off the old coatings.

    Hi,
    I just finish installing my new western red cedar deck. I'll have to wait about 3 months to apply a stain to the wood. That takes me to beginning of October. Should i stain it before winter or just wait in spring?

    Either would be fine.

    We are just installing a new cedar deck here in Seattle, Washington. Two questions:
    1. We want to highlight the grain and tone of the wood as much as possible. What color would you recommend?
    2. We want to wait 3 months for the deck to 'season', but that pushes us into the beginning of the rainy season. Would you recommend shortening the 'seasoning' time or waiting to stain until spring? Non-rainy periods become few and far between beginning in mid-September.

    Any color is fine. Highly suggest you order a few samples from our site to test first. You cannot shorten the waiting period of new wood.

    Look at one of our semi-solid colors for the best UV protection for this deck.

    Thanks!

    Amber is the same as the Super Cedar, just renamed.[/quote]

    Thanks! So just for clarification, what is the reason for the additional cost for semi-transp. amber over semi-transp. cedar? Colorwise, they look similar. I understand the amber is formulated for hard woods, but does this mean it will perform better on a standard deck? Should I go with semi-transp. cedar since my deck is NOT made of exotic hardwood? Thanks for your help!

    Amber can be used on all wood types and there is only one version of it.

    About 4-5 years ago, I stained my deck using a color called "transparent super cedar", which is no longer offered. I'd like to re-stain this Spring and was hoping to order the same color. Doing a quick google search, someone mentioned that super cedar is now the amber color? I'd like to purchase whichever color is the closest match and not sure whether to go with a transparent or semi-transparent color since the super cedar did have a nice rich tone that makes me think it was more of a semi. Thanks!

    i live in Virginia, have a 7 year old pine deck than has twice been treated with Cabot's Australian Timber Oil- Mahogany Flame. That is no longer available in my state. I want to re-stain the deck floor boards & hand rails, but not the pickets (they don't need it), so I want something that will match. do you think that I could mix 2 of your colors to match what I have? I plan to pressure wash the deck but not strip it.

    The closest color to the Mahogany Flame is the AC mahogany. No need to nix colors. You will need to remove the Cabot first before using the AC.

    I have a new "heart redwood" deck. 1) Please confirm that the right stain would be your regular stain rather than the "Hardwood/IPE" stain.
    2)The deck was installed around Oct 1 and it will be freezing and snowing here in Colorado mountains very soon. Should I wait until spring to apply? 3)Should I pretreat? Thanks

    Yes on the regular AC and yes you should wait 3 months and prep with the Restore A Deck Kit first.

    You can apply the AC to the unfinished (not primed) wood.

    TheSealerStore:

    After install you should let the wood weather untouched for 3 months. After weathering you will need to prep with the Restore A Deck Kit. Not sure what you mean about "primed"? If you mean a primer paint then you cannot use the Armstrong.


    By primed yes, I meant primed with an oil based wood primer. This was applied to the tongue, groove, and underside of the boards but not the top face that I would like to stain. None of the primed faces will be visible once the wood is installed - does that still make it unsuitable for staining?

    I will be installing T&G fir flooring (non-PT) on a covered front porch and would like to stain it. Prior to staining I plan to use a floor sander to provide a smooth surface. What sort of preparation is recommended before using an AC stain? This will be new wood that has been primed on the back and all sides prior to installation. It may also be worth noting, I have now had this wood stacked on the porch for about 1 month.

    I am sorry, I didn't realize that when you scroll all the way down it gives you an idea of what the colors are. I previously sent an email for some samples. Please disregard.

    Hi,

    I recently bought a townhouse with an 18-year-old deck, probably made of pressure-treated pine. Looks like it was never stained or sealed.

    It's not in great shape, but I think I can get some more years out of it if I take care of it properly. I plan to pressure-wash it as a first step.

    It's on the east side of a one-story building, so it gets sun for about half the day, maybe a little more. Located in the Northeast US (plenty of cloudy days, and long winters.) Would a transparent stain be appropriate, or should I go semi-transparent?

    Also, if I started out with Natural Tone, could I put one of your other shades over it later on if I wanted to?

    Thanks!

    You should use the Restore A Deck Kit when pressure washing as it is heavily grayed. Definitely use a semi-transparent or semi-solid color for this. It is really dried out and needs the protection.
