Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ

How long does the stain take to dry?

Ninety (90) days for total cure, depending on weather conditions.

What happens if I get stain on the concrete?

It is best to try to prevent any stain contact with porous surfaces by pre-wetting these surfaces with water. The water will fill the pores of the surface, preventing the stain from penetrating. You can then simply rinse off the overspray once you’re done working in that area.

What’s the difference between wood stain and paint?

Painting coats and covers up while stain penetrates, protects, preserves, and highlights the beauty of wood.  Wood Defender™ stain is especially easy to recoat without having to power wash, strip or scrape. 

How much coverage will I get per gallon?

The type of wood, age of wood, and structure will affect the coverage rate.
