Staining

You should use stain for the wooden surfaces, when paint goes for metallic and plastic ones.
Stain will last for a long time if you use it when the wooden surface is completely dry. For this reason we recommend to to clean and wash the wooden surface before staining it.
The deck will be dry in 36 hours after using Oil Base and 5-6 hours after using Water Base.
There are 2 types of stain: Oil Base and Water Base. They both are good for the wooden surface.
The surface of the Oil Base is shiny and looks like the paint. It’s better to use Oil Base on rooftops because it lasts longer after the direct sun rays.
Water Base has a matte surface and it helps to clean it by yourself. Also, Water Base lasts longer with the cold temperature, comparing to Oil Base.
Oil and Water Base can be:

  • Transparent
  • Semi Transparent
  • Semi Solid
  • Solid.

Do you need to put 2 coats of stain?
If you use Solid or Semi Solid, there’s no sense to do a second coat, because the deck won’t be more saturated. If you decided to use the second coat, you have to do it while the first coat is wet, otherwise the second coat will start peeling.
If we’re using transparent or Semi transparent, you have to put the second coat not later than 15-20 min after the first coat, while it’s still wet. After the second coat your deck will look closer to Sami Solid.
