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.

    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!

    Mrs Mac:
    We will be putting up bamboo fencing around our property. It is recommended that an Oil-based, UV resistant sealant be applied to the bamboo prior installation. Which stain is the better choice? I read in the comments that the Amber has 3 times the trans oxides for better UV protection. Is that true for bamboo?

    AC is not suggested for bamboo.

    I have new cedar deck stained with cedar semitransparent. Should I clean it to keep it looking nice and when does it need to be restrained? We are on Michigan lakeshore.

    New wood should be restained 1-2 years after the first application then every 2 years moving forward.

    I can't tell the difference between the woodland brown and sequoia colors. Do you have any pics of decks with these colors? I'm looking for a deep brown with reddish undertones. I can't test out first as my deck needs to be painted soon- next week. Thanks.

    We do not have pics. They are both reddish colors but in the scenario neither are mostly brown with a hint of red. Probably the Sequoia would be closest.

    Our deck is about 20 years old, made of pressure treated pine, has been stained several years ago but now is almost gone. Do we need to strip it, or will Armstrong Clark cover even the areas that still have stain?

    Yes you need to strip and brighten the wood for prep before applying the AC.

    Mickey, try wiping off the excess stain with some mineral spirits and rags. Make sure to saturate the rags with water when done to avoid accidental spontaneous combustion form the mineral spirits/stain.

    About 3weeks back I had my deck stained with your semi-solid Sequoia. It is not drying in some places. It is not peeling, but there is a thin coat of oil in places which are under an overhang.parts that are not shaded are dry.it is pretty even except for the shine in places. What can I do to get rid of this shine? I touched it and some of the oil and stain was on my finger! The deck had been pressure washed about one month before being stained. The weather has been around 40 deg but it's supposed to warm upto 60 deg in CA. Thanks.

    5 gallons pails ship free while 5 single gallons do not.

    The Amber has 3 times the trans oxides for better UV protection. This is why it costs more to manufacturer.

    5 one gallon cans cost $219.99. One 5 gallon can costs $224.00. Huh? Also, can you tell me why an extra charge of $25.00 is added to this stain? I'm sure I read the reason on your web site; but I don't remember it. Thanks

    You can use the semi-solids for foot traffic.

    I want to use Woodland Brown on my pressure treated pine covered porch floor. But I've read elsewhere that semi-solid stains aren't recommended for foot traffic areas. Are the darker tones (semi-solid) a different formula than the lighter tones (semi-transparent)? Are either OK for foot traffic areas?

    Thanks!

    Yes but you do need to wait for new wood to weather for 2-3 months and prepped with a cleaner and brightener before applying the stain.

    We just installed a new douglas fir porch on a 1840's house. Is this the appropriate stain for that type of flooring? I'd like to use the driftwood grey color to mimic the typical grey paint of an old porch.

    Molly, every 2 years is normal for the semi-transparent and semi-solid colors. The transparent colors will need a coating every 12-24 months.

    How often will I need to reapply this product to a cedar deck at 7000 ft elevation with winter snow in Central California? Are there any retailers selling this in Central or Southern California? Thanks in advance for your response.

    lee, I would not use the semi-solids on a hardwood deck as it may not penetrate properly. I would stay with the hardwood stain.

    I have a 15 year old mohagany deck that I am stripping and restaining. I need to replace a number of boards with new mohagany so when I stain it I am assuming it will not look uniform. I was thinking of using a semi solid to make it more uniform. Can the non hardwood stain be used on a mohagany deck? Also, I understand that the new boards will need to age a bit before staining? Also, any other recommendations?

    Sorry but we personally do not have any dealers there. One of the 5 gallon pails should be enough for this.

    2 questions:
    We are presently at our vacation home in McKenzie Bridge, OR, east of Eugene and west of Bend, OR. Do you retail in Oregon and, if so, what is closest store to 97413 zip?

    We have a deck of about 825 sq. ft. We used your semi-solid Mtn Cedar on our fence in southern CA in April and we really like this product. Please advise how many gallons you recommend for this deck area, applying it horizontally.

    Hi, I'm going to use this on my new deck. Can I also use it on some old chairs that we use outdoors or will it rub off on peoples clothing?

    Do you have any retailers in Rhode Island? What would you recommend to prepare the surface on pressure treated wood, in good condition, previously stained with Wolman's F&P oil-based stain?

    Jason, your wood should weather for a few months then be cleaned and brightened for the prep. I would look at the semi-transparent or semi-solid colors of the AC.

    I have a new 12x12 redwood deck - I want to keep it's natural color but live in UT with wind, rain, sun and snow so know it needs to be protected. What is the best product you offer that doesn't need to be applied every year and is easy to apply in one day?

    If the wood is free of the Cabot then you should be ready to stain with the AC.

    Hi, my family and I are restoring an old farm house and we put a new covered porch of yellow tongue and groove pine on two years ago. We stained it with Cabot Australian Tung oil. Long story short, our painter was fixing some mildew spots on the upper part of the porch and sprayed bleach on the stained wood and ruined the finish. I bleached/pressure washed the rest of that finish off (we weren't super happy with it anyway) and want to put down a new stain. Can I apply your product over the cleaned wood? I really do not want to use a stripper due to the risk to the new house paint. I like what has been written about your product and would like to use it. Any help would be really appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Kenn
