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 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 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.

Excellent deck stain, easy application, great absorption, quick dry and a lovely final look. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. We get many compliments, and friends loved the pics that I posted on Facebook. I'm on my second time using this, after 4 years. Oh, btw, I'm a retired industrial wood coatings engineer.

    Hello, I am from Northern Ontario. I am just finishing up my new deck with western red cedar, what stain should I use, and how long should I wait before staining. Thanks.

    We have a very old deck (at least 22 years old). I scrubbed the dirt and mildew off; it looks so much better. I'm ready to use stain but I have no idea what kind of wood I'm dealing with. Does that matter?

    We installed new pressure treated southern pine framework and deck stairs when we redid our decks 1 1/2 years ago. Our decks face south. 1) What prep work do we need to do? 2) Which stain would be the best to apply? 3) How often on average will we need to re-stain; we live between Buffalo and Rochester, NY?
    We also have a north facing, 35 yr old pressure treated, covered porch that has solid stain on it. We want to stain it with whichever stain we use on the south deck framing and stairs. 4) What do we use to strip it? 5) Would we use deck brightener and cleaner, too?

    I have some leftover stain from last year that I have put back in the can and resealed. Can I use it again this year?

      The shelf life on an opened pail is 12 months. Hard to say if it is good or not.

    Hi. I have a cedar deck that I have stained to years in a row with the transparent cedar tone. Unfortunately every spring the deck looks terrible again. Living in canada on the west coast I get alot of rain and mildew especially since we are situated on a green belt. The deck is also south facing so it gets a lot of sun in the warm months.


    Would I have more luck with the semi transparent. The deck itself is 2 years old, and is properly prepped each time prior to staining with the cleaner and brightener. Looks great after the initial staining but I feel it shouldnt look this bad every spring.

      Strip and brighten for the prep and try the Armstrong Clark.

        As stated I have already exclusively used Armstrong Clark transparent cedar tone.

        Would the semi transparent cedar tone offer more protection and would I need to use a stripper before applying it over the transparent stain, or could i get away with a cleaner and brightener and sanding.

    What stain type would be best for older cedar shake roof? We live at 5500' elevation and was going to use wash safe cedar wash a few days prior to staining.

    Is there greater UV protection from the Hardwood/IPE stains applied to pine siding or a semi-solid stain? Also, which of the two types gives better mildew protection?
    Assuming you can see grain better through the Hardwood stain, is the color tone of the Amber most similar to the Mountain Cedar of SS?

      Semi-solids give the best UV protection. Same for mildew resistance. Amber is not the same color as the MC.

    I am planning on installing Yellawood KDAT super select decking on a deck project in North Atlanta, Ga. Yellawood strongly recommends staining before installation, due to the low moisture content. I would like to use Armstrong Clarke semi solid stain. Do you have a recommendation for the staining process of the KDAT material?

      Do not pre-stain. Install the wood, let season for about 1 month, and then clean and brighten the wood for the prep.

    Sirs,

    I really would prefer not to stain the new decking material unless necessary/

    What would be your recommendation for 12% moisture White Oak that was milled three months ago? Also, what about the end grains?

    Thank You,
    Steve Arch

    This is my second time staining my 950 square foot deck with Armstrong's Woodland Brown Semi-Solid stain. The first time was 4 years ago and I used the Revive-A-Deck cleaning kit, but this time I just pressure washed.

    Both the cleaning kit and this stain receive very high marks from me, both as a consumer and retired industrial wood coatings engineer. I love this site, and steer folks here.

      You would want one of the 3 hardwood colors for this: Amber, Mahogany, or Black Walnut. They are semi-transparent in color.

    Blake Johnson:
    I applied the semi-transparent driftwood from a 5 gallon pail to part of my deck and realized after applying it that the stain was not stirred adequately. After stirring it properly, the stain was much darker. Can I apply a coat of the darker stain over the first, lighter coat, or do I have to strip off the lighter coat first?

    It would be best to strip and start over with a new pail that is properly mixed.

    How do you open the Armstrong clark 1 gallon can? Does the plastic rim get removed? Also, question on how to appky stripper to vertical areas to let it soak for 30 mins. It just drips off. Thanks.

    The ring pops off. Pry inwards with your fingers or pliers, gripping just the ring.
    Apply stripper heavily, it will work.

    Best to use the Restore A Deck Kits with the pressure washing for the proper prep. this is a cleaner and a brightener system.
