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!

    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.

    Susan, I would use the Amber tint for this. Use a deck cleaner when pressure washing.

    I have a 10 yr old mahogany deck, last treated with CABOT about 6 years ago. It is half in the sun and half in the shade. I Live in Maine. I prefer the clear choice but want to preserve it. It is now a deep brown with graying which is fine by me. Do you recommend a color? I am power washing it; do I need to do more to prep? Thanks

    If you close the spout so there is not any evaporation then it should be fine. Store in a place where it will not freeze or be exposed to extreme heat.

    I've got 5 gal of cedar tone transparent. If I use 1-2 gal now will the rest keep until next spring / summer? What is the best way to store extra?

    Jacibils, opened stain probably will not last that long but it does depend on how well you close the lid. If there is zero evaporation, it might be possible to last for that long.

    How long can I store the stain? I ordered 15 gallons and have about 4 gallons left over as coverage was better than expected. Can I store for about 3 years for re-application or do I need to find another project to use it on? Thanks.

    Jacibils, you can but make sure it is a very light coat. Do not over apply.

    I applied a 1st and 2nd coat on about half the deck on the same day and it looks fine but did not have time to finish the second coat on about half the deck. Can I apply the 2nd coat on the remainder of the deck about a week after applying the first coat? Thanks.

    I have the same question as the last commenter: I ordered three samples, but see no place on the site to claim that credit when ordering the 5-gallon pails? Thanks for helping!

    I ordered 3 sample cans but did not see in the paperwork how to get a credit for the $15 applied to my 5 gallon pail order. Please advise.

    Thank you.

    The Amber will give better UV protection than the Cedartone as it has 3 times the amount of trans oxides.

    Is there a difference in wood protection or life between the Amber stain and the Cedar tone? I received samples of these and am looking to use for cedar siding and possibly a treated pine deck. Please advise.

    Jacibils, sorry but for that quantity there is not.

    Is there a volume discount if I order 3 of the 5 gallon buckets of stain?

    Russell, make sure to remove the Behr first with a stain stripper and wood brightener. I would look at the Sierra Redwood or Sequoia colors. You can get samples to test first.

    Jacques, yes you can mix colors together to achieve a new color or tint.

    Can I mix colors such as Sierra redwood with the Amber in case the Sierra redwood alone is too red for my deck? Other suggestions? Thanks

    I have 2 pressure treated decks in Austin, Texas (Warm/Sunny weather). One of the decks already has Behr stain from 4 years back and another one is new. I want a "fire" type color (Red+Yellow). Which stain (semi-trans or Semi-solid) do you suggest for both the decks? Thanks.

    Jckie, the Sierra Redwood is the semi-transparent.

    Is there a semi-transparent Redwood Tone in 5 gallon size?
  • We will reply to your comment shortly
    Administrator · 05/28/2013
    It will have some pigment so it will have some UV protection but it is very light.

    Most 'clear' stains don't offer UV protection. Does your Natural Tone offer some UV? I expect it would be minimal since it has little or no pigment.
