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

The best!!Easy to use one single coat will protect your entire cedar deck
Monday, 03 June 2019
It lasted 5 YEARS on my deck. After stripping, brightening and sanding I applied 1 coat which looks like a natural redwood color. My redwood/cedar deck is 40 years old so it absorbed the stain instantly but looked great for many years. I like only needing to refinish my deck every 5 years. Before switching to Armstrong it was every 2-3 years - Great product!
About three weeks after I treated my deck with the hardwood mahogany stain, some folks tracked very muddy boots all over the deck and it dried. It has ben very hard to get the mud prints off (I have hosed it, scrubbed it, etc.). Is there anything I can do to get the mud off without having to start all over and re-clean, re-brighten, and re-stain the deck?
Our deck is over 6 years old. It has some kind of semi-transparent stain. I plan to use the wood cleaner and brightener, then sand with pole sander and 120 grit sandpaper before applying semi-transparent rustic-brown. I am guessing I have to repeat these steps in 2 years? Deck is in NC and gets morning sun (full shade past noon) and is in NC. Also, if I need a second coat, do i jus walk over wettish first coat to apply the second coat? Thank you.
thank u for replying. I just ordered the stain and prep kit! We had the deck professionally power washed in April this year. Do we need to rent power washer for staining or will a regular hose with jet stream attachment do? The deck including steps is abt 140 sqft. I've only ordered one gallon.
I just sanded my porch for probably the first time in 90 years. As you can see the wood is not in the best condition in some places. However, it is covered so I don’t need to worry about direct sun and water damage. I’d like to use a transparent or semi transparent stain. Which do you suggest?
I have just finished installing a redwood deck on a screened in porch. The redwood is 50+ yrs old and I removed it from another screened in porch. I will be sanding it this week with a floor sander from the local hardware store. Your stain (semi-trans Rustic Brown) should be here on Tuesday Oct. 13, 2020. Do I need to wait a few days before applying the stain and can I use a roller to apply the stain? Can I use paint thinner for clean up?
If you sand, you would need to clean and bright after that for final prep and this opens up the wood pores. Only one coat of the AC stain. Do not use a roller to apply. Stain pads or brushes. Mineral spirits to clean.
I have a natural cedar deck with several new/replaced boards. The original boards are a nice weathered grey but the new boards are obviously the new warm red tone. What stain would I use to help make it all look like one color? Any special prep required?
Hello Again - I see that I can order the cleaner, brightener and stain right here online with free shipping. I live in Pioneer CA - can you give me an idea of how long it will take for the product to arrive?
I had a new pool deck built 2 years ago, but never stained it. About a month and a half ago, I power washed it and now want to stain using the semi transparent in Natural Oak. Is the anything else I need to do before I stain?
I live in western New York where the summers are humid and average 80-90 degrees. The deck is in full sun for most of the day.
Found Rad and Armstrong semi trans cedar stain in basement of older house we bought.
Rad did fabulous job in preparing deck, as you can see from the pics, but it has rained every other day for a week. Temps in the mid to high 20s Celsius. 1: How long after last rain before I can stain? 2: Is brushing preferred over rolling.?(or rolling then brushing) 3:And is this older Armstrong the same as the Armstrong Clark stains and can I top it up with a gallon of semi cedar if needed? 4: is there any advantages to applying a second coat?
Why do you have to wait a year before staining? I have a shed with T1-11 I want to stain with Semi-Solid cedar and from what I read many complain a single rain storm on T1-11 will cause it to delaminate unless protected. What will happen if I use your stain on the T1-11 as soon as I put it up?
