Free Shipping Policy on 5 Gallon Pails and Restore A Deck Products in the 48 States!

  • Free Ground Shipping on All 5 Gallon Buckets and RAD Products in the 48 States!
  • Only within the contiguous 48 states (not Alaska or Hawaii). There is no limit on amount of 5 gallon pails that we will ship for free!
  • We do not ship free to Canada. Our rates to Canada are actual shipping rates.
  • Any other product(s) will be charged ground rates. The 5 gallon boxes can only hold one pail therefore we cannot add any other companion products such as single gallons, applicators, etc. into the 5 gallon box. They must be shipped separately requiring a shipping charge. All shipping charges reflect actual ground rates and are determined by weight and customer's zip code.
  • Some products do not come in 5 Gallon pails! We do not give free shipping on 5 single gallons!

Hazardous Material Items:

Some of the 5 Gallon pails must ship HazMat. This is required for legal DOT reasons when shipping in a 5 gallon quantity.

UPS/Fedex/Purolator(Canada) Ground:

  • Purchases are shipped from our Rochester Hills, MI warehouse, to arrive within 1-5 business days of receipt of the order. In the event of a delay, we will notify you by email or phone.
  • Note: Items ordered together may not arrive in the same box.
  • If we are out of stock we may have the item dropped shipped from the vendor.

Expedited Shipments:

  • Please call for rates for Next day air and 2nd day air. Please take inconsideration that this can be very costly due to the weight of the packages. Oil-based products can only be shipped ground due to combustible liquid regulations.

Damaged Orders:

  • Any product that is accidentally damaged causing product loss or equipment failure during shipping will be replaced at no charge after a claim has been made though the shipping company. Cans or pails that are dented during shipment will not be replaced unless leaking. A digital picture will be required.
  • We will handle the claim. Please call for details.

Purchase of 5 gal. pail of Armstrong Clark stain
I would like to purchase from you a 5 gallon pail of Armstrong Clark stain. I live in Canada in Edmonton, Alberta. I have a few questions:
1) How much it will cost shipping and handling?
2) What other taxes do I have to pay?
3) I assume all quotes/prices are in US dollars, please confirm.
4) How long it will take to get it?
5) Won't be this product stopped at customs as not allowed in Canada?
6) Do we have to pay duty or brokerage fees at customs

Thank you,

Stefan Bachu

My order was shipped to Canada June 7. Tracking # 4002349000066354 via PuroPost. Tracking status has been showing "Shipment in transit" for days but still not out for delivery. It has been 5 business days. Does it normally take longer than this? Thanks!

Shipping via UPS to Canada??? But Why?

Just read that you use UPS to ship to Canada.

UPS is a ripoff when it comes to Brokerage fees!!

Why don't you help us canadian would be customers and ship via USPS, as this is a MUCH better alternative on the receiving end??

I would appreciate a detailed response to this question. Not just a "Sorry but this is how we do business" type response.

I am considering purchasing the super grip product, but not sure if the shipping costs are $16.50 for a product costing $19.00. Is'nt the shipping cost cheaper for the smaller product? Can it be sent USPS?

messmers uv plus for hardwood decks 250 voc natural
Hi ,
Can you please let me know how long it will take to get this product ? Do you have any expedited shipping option available ? I will need 1 gallon by Friday 05/15 in zip 11222
marcin , May 10, 2015
The AC is allowed in Canada. Consumers constantly bring it into Canada or have it shipped there. Yes you should let the wood sit for a month then clean and brighten for the prep before staining.
TheSealerStore , April 26, 2015
Product Compliance
Hi, I am looking to purchase Armstrong Clark stain - possibly take advantage of free shipping to Ogdensburg NY (5gal) and pick up myself. Do I need special description that product meets Cdn VOC requirements or is this product routinely brought in by Canadian customers?
I have completely sanded my cedar deck. Do I need to bother with conditioner or brightener? It had Behr water based stain that flaked off...

thanks for your response, Tim
Tim Cutts , April 26, 2015
Armstrong Clark is legal for Canada so now issues.
TheSealerStore , April 21, 2015
Could I have Armstrong oil based stain shipped to Blaine Washington and then bring it across the border or are there regulations I need to know about?
Aileen , April 20, 2015
re: brokerage
It is based on Canadian conversion so a $199 US dollar converts to $200+ Canadian. Shipping is not included.
TheSealerStore , July 19, 2014
hello, the brokerage fee is based on the $199 item amount, not the amount including the shipping charge?

Shipping to Rosemere, Quebec, Canada (J7A-1Z3)

I was wondering what the final cost would be to receive on 5-gallon pail of Armstrong Clark Wood Stain. How much would the shipping be and how much would the taxes be?

Is there a Canadian location where I can just pick this product up?

re; need deck stain for Ottawa, Ontario
TWP is not legal for Canada so you would want the Armstrong Clark. Not sure about getting it there Monday. It would be close but cannot guarantee.
TheSealerStore , June 18, 2014
need deck stain for Ottawa, Ontario
What would you recommend as a durable semi-transparent stain for a cedar deck in Ottawa? Long/harsh winter...

Oil based presumably. Armstrong Clark or TWP? I would need shipping to 13669 NY.

Can you get a shipment there for Monday, June 23rd?

slabber , June 17, 2014
Most likely on Friday or latest on Saturday.
TheSealerStore , May 27, 2014
So, if I order it today, we'd have it by Friday (zip code 23434)?

re: what product to use on my new fence
Best to wait a few months of smooth wood then clean and brighten for the prep. if rough sawn you can stain right away. You need color/tint in the stain if you want to prevent wood graying. Look at the Armstrong Clark.
TheSealerStore , March 23, 2014
what product to use on my new fence
I have a new cedar fence that was finished about one month ago. I want to put a clear finish on it to keep the natural cedar beauty. Do I need to do anything to the wood before I seal it? What is the best product for my fence. The fence is 3500 sq. ft. of surface. Are oil base products better then water based for penetrating the wood?

TWP ship to Canada
I processed an order of twp not realizing it cannot ship to canada... your checkout should somehow prevent the payment process. Will i be contacted to exchange with another sealant?
Filipe M , May 11, 2013
re: twp sealant and border control
TWP is not compliant for Canada and we cannot ship it there and it is not VOC compliant there either.

During checkout it is explained to you that you will need to pay brokerage fees and province taxes when shipping to Canada. We cannot control these charges and we require all Canadian orders to agree to this otherwise you cannot purchase from the site. Thanks

I just had the 5 gallon stain I ordered to Edmonton, Alberta. I already paid for shipping with you guys; but I was also charged $60 C.O.D by UPS. Is this correct?
scubasteve139 , July 25, 2012
re: Why can you not ship TWP to Canada
It is not compliant for Canada as it is not registered there as wood preservative due to the ingredients in TWP. We do have a store that is open for walk-in business.
TheSealerStore , July 25, 2012
Why can you not ship TWP to Canada. Can it be purchased in person at your Star Batt location?

re: Cabot Austrailian Timberoil (Clear)
I am sorry but we do not carry the Cabot ATO in Clear.
TheSealerStore , July 24, 2012
In the past I have used the Cabot Austrailian Timberoil (Clear) on my front deck and have been more than pleased with the product. Unfortunately, it is impossible to purchase this product in Canada any longer. Is it possible to purchase anywhere from 2 to 4 gallons of this product from your facility and have it shipped to Hamilton, Ontario, Canada (L8K 3P5) and if so, can you give me some indication as to the shipping charges. Your response would be appreciated.

Just had to cancel on order of Original Defy Exterior finish 10 Gallons Colorado Gold and 10 Gallons of Clear as the shipping cost added an addtional $153.00 per pail. What would your shipping costs be for the same order delivered to Edmonton Alberta, Canada.

re: Shipping to California
The LA area has very strict VOC laws so it really depends on the product that you would want. Many that we sell are not compliant for LA, San Bernardino, Riverside, and Orange Counties.

Do you have a ditributor in Ontario, Canada or ship your products to Canada?

re: TWP
It depends on how well you close the top. If air can escape then so can the solvent in the TWP. This means it could get hard or thick in consistency.
