Mahogany is the go-to choice for Exotic Hardwoods such as IPE and has shown better color retention than any other Exotic Hardwood Stain!

Armstrong-Clark Company Wood Stains

Armstrong's deck and siding wood stain has nondrying conditioning oils that separate from the drying side of the formula. These oils penetrate deep into the deck or siding wood fiber where the wood's natural oils used to be. This process rejuvenates the wood. The drying oils stay at the surface, lock in the conditioning oils and create a dry to the touch barrier. Armstrong's deck and siding wood stain formulas also contain vegetable oils, transparent oxide pigments, water repellents, mildewcide, and solvent.

Quality is what Armstrong-Clark brings to you. Backed by five generations of oil-based coatings experience, coupled with modern technology, Armstrong-Clark can meet and exceed your need for oil based wood coatings.

  • Can be applied in direct sunlight and heat of the day. If the first coat penetrates within 30 minutes a second coat can be applied for extra protection.
  • Easily applied by brush, roller, garden sprayer or airless spray equipment.
    When spraying - back-rolling or brushing will help even out appearance. If there are any puddles or glossy spots after 24 hours, remove with a dry rag.
  • Non-drying oils penetrate deep to recondition older wood.
  • Drying oils, pigments, and water repellents protect against water and UV damage and lock in the nondrying oils.
  • Complies with all government environmental standards.
  • No offensive odor.

Coverage:
Armstrong-Clark Wood Deck Stain applies at about 150-200 feet per gallon. Actual coverage varies depending on wood porosity.

    why do you advise against applying a thompsons water seal over the semi solid stain? my deck is pretty old and while we stripped and sanded before application the finished look is still a bit rough. i am trying to apply something else that will give it a more finished look and make the wood more comfortable to walk on.

      You can never apply a coating over a deck stain. It will peel. In addition, Thompson’s is a very poor product.

    To clarify the 1st coat of Semi solid Woodland Brown was just done 2 days ago and I want to do the second coat in Semi solid Mountain Cedar within 2 weeks. I still have to strip the new coat? Is it because the colour will be off/inconsistent or they are not compatible? Thanks.

      It will be inconsistent and it may not cure correctly. Strip and start over is the correct way.

    I stained my deck with 1 coat semi-solid stain in Woodland Brown and the colour is too red looking like a  lighter version of mahogany. Can I do the second coat in mountain cedar to lessen the red colour? Thanks.

    Hello team,I just cleaned our 5 year old mahogany front porch and it looks nice again. I read all about the Hardwood deck stain and would like to order a gallon. But I am worried about changing the nice different color look of the Mahogany wood (see picture). Should I order the 'Amber' or the 'Mahogany' one? I don't want it to be dark, but maintain the original wood look as much as possible and still get the sun protection (parts of it get morning sun and grayed out). Thank you lots in advance, Michael

      All colors are tinted and that means the color for your wood will change or be enhanced. It is impossible to have a clear (no color) that will offer UV protection. Amber is the lightest hardwood color and will look similar to a wet look.

    Can this stain be applied to mahogany decking that was previously treated with a standard water-based deck stain?

      You have to remove the prior coating first and then yes, you can use the AC.

    I want to stain exterior stairs, 13 steps.  Do I need to also stain the underside of the steps and would 1 gallon do for stairs? We live in the rainy Pacific northwest.

      No need to stain undersides. We would need a total sq footage of wood to be stained to give amount needed.

    I stained my cedar deck for the first time a year ago with Armstrong Clark transparent natural tone. I have a lot of trees and the deck needs heavy cleaning now, which I’ll do with a cleaner and pressure washer. If I’m not planning to stain it again until next year, should I use a brightener after the cleaner? And how can I tell whether the deck can hold up another year or should get a new coat this year?

      You cannot prep with a cleaner and then not apply a coat of stain. Prep products can only be used when you are planning on recoating.

        So what’s the best way to clean the deck? Just pressure washed with no detergent? And how can I tell if I need another coat of stain or if last year’s is still good?

          The Sealer Store · 03/30/2021
          Try just water but being too aggressive will remove the stain. You should be fine until next year for another coat.

    I have a new deck that is only a day or two old. The railing and frame are pressure treated pine, the decking is cedar. Should I plan to let the deck weather until late September or early October? At that point would I want to use the cleaner/brightener combo, then rinse and stain after it is dry? The deck is North facing so it gets sun pretty much all day long, semi-transparent would probably the best option for now?

    Hi I have a cedar deck that I installed two years ago. I used a transparent oil based stain because I wanted to preserve the natural look but now it has grayed, especially on the treds. I want to stain again but I want it to last. I don't think a solid colour is what I want, I'm thinking more a semi-transparent. Which product would be best in terms of longevity and which colour would look the most natural on cedar?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      The Sealer Store · 06/10/2020
      Yes, use any of the semi-transparent colors by Armstrong above. That would be your best option.

    Hello
    My deck is 3 years old (pressure treated lumber) - After several months of drying, it was stained with TWP (2 coats) then restained 8 months later (1 coat) under warranty because it was already fading out
    Now, I need to restain because it's fading out again (some spots seem with no stain anymore), and there is some apparent traces of mold
    Do I need to apply chemicals such as cleaner OR stain stripper (and then brightener to neutralize these chemicals) or a careful power wash will be enough?
    I plan to apply Armstrong Clark semi solid stain, in dark color
    Thanks

    I stained my deck with AC semi-trans amber and it's time to re-stain now. But I would like to change a color to semi-trans ceder or transparent ceder tone. Can I use just clean and brightener instead of stripper and brightener?
    Thanks

      No, you will need to strip and brigthen for prep if switching colors.

    Have a few questions. I would like to stain my deck. Live in Ontario Canada. For a 1 year old PT deck size about 300 Sqft.

    What is the recommended Cleaner and Brightener and how many gallons of stain do I need (what is the recommended number of coats?).

    Applicators, what do you recommend, and can they be re-used for Cleaner, Brightener and Stain.

    Thanks.

      Use this kit for prep: https://www.opwdecks.com/rad-300.htm

      About 2-2 gallons of the AC stain for the two coats.

      use a stain pad or brush.

    I live in northern part of Ontario Canada where our long and brutal winters get extremely cold where -40 f is not unusual added with tons of snow. Would this product hold up on a deck under those conditions? I feel like we live in the north pole and nothing we do here lasts! ~Lori~

    We live in Victoria British Columbia, Vancouver Island. Washington state is just south of us. Would there be a postal code/delivery address in Washington state could pick up our order to avoid brokers fees and duty charges? Canadians are allowed to bring back a certain amount of USA goods duty free after a stay of a minimum of twenty four hours.

      You would have to find your own delivery address in the states, we do not supply those. Many Canadians do delivery to the states and pick up.

      There are no brokerage or duty charges from us when we deliver to Canada. Shipping costs and taxes only.

    I have a PT deck with Armstrong Clark rustic brown and I love it. I just purchased a gazebo with cedar posts and want to stain those to match. However, they have water based stain from the vendor, who says you can stain on top. I don’t want to strip as there are a lot of small pieces in the roof. Do you know of a water based stain that would be close to AC’s rustic brown? I would try samples but don’t have any spots that won’t show. Thanks.

      You cannot apply a different brand of stain on top of their coating. Doesn't matter if water-based or oil-based, you have to strip/remove no matter what. We offer water-based stains and none of them will work to go on top of a stain of a different brand.
