Armstrong Clark Staining Instructions

Choosing Armstrong Clark Oil Based Wood Stains will ensure lasting beauty and protection for all your exterior wood surfaces. Backed by five generations of experience in oil based coatings and cutting edge technology, Armstrong Clark Wood Stains will not only meet your wood protection needs but far exceed them.

Determine the square footage area of the surface you plan to stain. On decks be sure not only to measure the floor but also railings, spindles, steps and all areas that you are planning to stain. Armstrong-Clark Deck and Siding Stains will cover approximately 150-200 sq. ft. per gallon depending on age and wood porosity.

 

Armstrong Clark Deck and Siding Stains come in many different colors and tones. Keep in mind that the actual color results can vary depending on the type, age, condition, and porosity of the wood. Color samples are available if needed.

 

Prior to using any of the Armstrong Clark Wood Stains it is important to prepare the wood surface properly so the stain will perform as expected. See the RAD Wood Cleaner or Stain Stripper products for properly cleaning the wood surface prior to staining.

Allow the wood surface to dry 1-2 days after it has been cleaned and prepped. Be sure no rain is expected on the day of staining and for 3-4 hours after application so the stain can cure properly.

To apply Armstrong Clark Deck Stain you can use a roller, brush, stain pad, or airless sprayer. Mix the stain thoroughly prior to use. Unlike other stains, Armstrong Deck Stain can be applied in direct sunlight and on hot days. If the first application of stain penetrates within 30 minutes another coat can be applied for added protection.

If applying by sprayer, use a roller or brush to go over the sprayed areas for a more even appearance. After 24 hours use a dry rag to remove any remaining puddles or glossy areas.

Armstrong Clark Wood Stain is environmentally friendly and does not contain an offensive odor. It is easy to apply and very user-friendly. Enhancing the appearance of your deck and giving it lasting protection is the best investment you can make and Armstrong Clark Oil Based Wood Stains makes it easy.

    I have several cedar posts in need of some finish. Will this product be suitable for vertical surfaces? What type of cleaner would you recommend prior to any finish?

    Thanks

    Wendy, you can but there is not guarantee that an opened pail will last that long and still be good.

    Hi. I need about 2 gallons of semi-cedar to do my deck. If I get 5 gal container, can I store the remainder in my basement (unfinished but does not get too cold in winter, maybe 50-55 degrees in winter) to redo deck in 1-2 years as needed? Thanks.

    I have a Siberian larch deck that is about 2 yrs old. I have had duck back exotic wood oil stain on it and it is showing significant mold. The deck is west facing and gets tons of sun. What product do you recommend?

    Remove the Super Deck with the Restore A Deck Stripper and Brightener. Look at the AC in the Amber or the Mahogany for this wood type.
