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.

I don't write product reviews. However, this stain is too good not to write one. We replaced our 34 year old deck floorboards last summer. During the past year, we researched deck stains and discovered that oil-based stains are becoming harder to find, which led us to Armstrong Clark. First of all, the option of buying samples is genius, as I would have chosen the wrong color without samples to test. After prepping the deck with the cleaner and brightener, the first difference I noticed from 34 years ago was that you no longer have to spend fifteen minutes trying to stir the thick sludge from the bottom of the can into a usable product. The Armstrong Clark stain was so easy to stir! The semi-transparent stain then went on evenly, was absorbed quickly, and dried to a rich, beautiful color. I love this stain! It has just recently been applied, so I can't write about its longevity yet, but this is a high quality product, and I am confident it will perform as described. We are thrilled with the way our deck looks, and will not hesitate to recommend it to others. A dreaded chore became a joy!

    Defy Extreme claims UV protection from nano particles. How does AC product compare?

    AC has trans oxides in it for UV protection from graying.

    Hello. I would like to use Armstrong Clark deck stain on my deck. I am considering purchasing a Graco TrueCoat Pro II Airless paint sprayer for the job. My concern is that the sprayer manufacturer states that it is unsafe to use the sprayer with products that are marked FLAMMABLE. Would Armstrong Clark deck stain be compatible with this sprayer? Thanks!

    Armstrong is not flammable so you should have no issues.

    How would you class each color into groups based on the amount of pigment?

    For example, would Cedar be transparent, Cedar Semi be semi-transparent, and Amber a full semi-solid color?

    What about Rustic Brown, Woodland Brown, and Oxford Brown?


    Above in the drop down color choices where you add to cart, it gives the correct transparency with each color.

    Amber is a semi-trans.

    I paint my fence every 2 years with oil based products. I usually add 12oz. Of linseed oil to any paint I apply for addition protection. Is this something you would see as beneficial to your product if used?

    Hello, you cannot apply the AC over a paint of a different brand without removing it first. In addition there is no need to add linseed oil. The AC will penetrate very deeply as long as the wood is prepped correctly.

    I'm interested in getting AC semi-transparent stain for our western red cedar deck. We want a mid brown color. We've heard the cedar is too yellow, the rustic brown looks too dark and the redwood looks too red. Is it possible to mix the colors? (e.g. 50/50 cedar and rustic brown) or can you recommend something that will be mid brown on cedar? Thanks!

    Yes you can mix them. Not sure what the ratio would be and this varies based on your wood type and age. Might want to get a few samples from our site and test the ratios to see what color you would want.

    STF:
    A) Does the transparent natural tone have pigment in it or is it simply a clear coat?

    B) Can you mix the different tones of the transparent stain to achieve a different color?

    a. Natural is very lightly tinted.
    b. yes you can.

    I'm in Ontario and putting in a new cedar deck in Sept.
    I assume that I need to stain the deck right away before winter?
    Also, what is the difference between the transparent and semi transparent wrt protection? The deck will be in morning sun. What do you recommend?

    New wood needs to season for 2-3 months. You also need to prep first with the Restore A Deck Kit that we sell before staining. Semi-transparent will give a little better UV protection.

    The Samples show Amber as a color.
    The order page choice is Semi-Trans Amber.
    Are they the Same?

    Amber is a transparent color but with 3 times the amount of trans oxides to give it the Uv protection of a semi-transparent. It is both really.

    We ordered Woodland brown, but the color looks much more like Cedar (very orange terra cotta color). It doesnt seem to be changing much as it dries. Is this normal?

    Woodland Brown is a reddish brown color. Color also varies on wood type and the age of the wood. We highly suggest testing samples our first.

    What would you recommend for best UV protection on a new cedar deck that surrounds a swimming pool? How many coats and best waiting period? We are near Lawrence, KS, hot humid summers, fairly harsh winters, medium amount of snow. Deck is full sun until about 5pm.

    Wait 3 months. Prep first with Restore A deck Kit. Stain with 1 coat of stain. Use a semi-trans or semi-solid color.
