    Product Description

    *Disclaimer: The final color will look dramatically different depending on the wood’s age & species, so we recommend trying WOODguard stain samples before ordering.

    How to Apply WOODguard:

    Coverage:

    1 gallon covers 150-300 ft² on new wood and 75-100 ft² on weathered wood.

    Mixing Instructions:

    WOODguard Exterior should be mixed thoroughly, making sure that all ingredients have been removed from the bottom of the container. For the 5-gallon bucket, we recommend using a drill mixer like the Hyde Stir Whip that can reach and scrape the entire bottom of the bucket. If using a mixer, attach to an electric drill and insert through the bunghole to mix. Make sure that the mixer reaches all the way to the bottom of the bucket. If this is not an option, you can also use a clean bucket and pour the contents of the stain bucket into it. Use a small amount of Mineral Spirits or Paint Thinner to retrieve the majority of any material left in the bottom of the bucket and add it back into the mixed bucket.

    • If using a WOODguard custom color, mix the entire quart of tint into the 5-gallon bucket before mixing
    • If using Bee Gone, MX-3 or NBS 30, also mix the entire bottle(s) into the 5-gallon bucket before mixing

    IMPORTANT: keep the stain well mixed! Colorant will settle out quickly. To maintain color uniformity, make sure to mix the bucket whenever you take out more stain.

    1. Richard Anderson

      In the trades 45 plus yrs. Used all the big boy stains and oils from SW, BM, KM and so on paint companies bur after using woodgaurd on a cedar shingled home that was in rough shape due to being right on the water where salt fog rain sun and high winds just battered the siding i about #%÷×$&? My pants at the pot life i had after spraying out the finish!!! I could keep spraying without having to back roll right away’ hence allowing greater absorption time. Afer back rolling and some brush work i was beyond myself with the performance and cured finish. Richard Anderson, Alpine painting&home improvment.

      We have used Wood Guard for 15 years and wouldn’t consider using anything else. Our last stain job lasted 7 years. This year we are having it redone and adding the Begone to the stain. Carpenter bees love our house too. Thank you for an excellent product. I will be ordering more!

      AAA+++ This is the best exterior wood stain we have ever purchased & we have probably bought 5 or 6 others over the years. The difference is amazing & our house is beautiful. Thank you!

      The sample pack let us achieve the perfect color for our circa. 1975 Justice Cedar home. The house was acid stripped, ph balanced and hand brushed with woodgaurd/ tamarack. we are very pleased with the finish product and our painter really liked the product as well.

    4 Questions about WOODguard Exterior Stain

    1. I have used Honey 2000 on my log siding since 2007. I see Amber honey is now available. It this just a shade darker than honey 2000 ?

      1. Hello Russell,

        Amber Honey is extremely close in color to the Honey 2000. It is a very slightly brighter color with a bit more pigment. But I would say it usually appears slightly lighter than the Honey 2000 does. We highly recommend getting samples of the colors to try out on your wood as all wood takes the colors differently.

    2. I plan on building my own log home soon. Can you apply this solution on freshly cut non-seasoned logs or must I wait until logs moister percentage is at a certain point? Please advice…

      1. Hi Chris, we recommend waiting to apply WOODguard until the wood’s moisture content is below 18%. With a higher moisture content, the wood won’t absorb the oil well and it will shorten the stain’s expected life span. How long this will take really depends on what kind of lumber you’re planning on using (pressure treated wood tends to take longer than other woods, even as much as six months to a year).

    3. Why do you not recommend using an airless sprayer to apply Woodguard?

      0
      0

      1. Hi Edward, the manufacturer doesn’t recommend using an airless sprayer because at high pressures the WOODguard will be atomized and is harder to contain. WOODguard will kill bushes and shrubs that it gets on & you also don’t want to be breathing atomized WOODguard. The manufacturer recommends using a garden or pump sprayer that can achieve around 100 psi and then back-brushing the stain into the wood. Though not recommended, contractors who use airless sprayers often use extremely low pressure and a wide tip to try and get a very coarse spray with as little atomization as possible. Keep in mind that WOODguard needs to be applied to the point of refusal, so even if you do use an airless sprayer, you will need to be back-brushing the stain into the wood.

    4. We live in LA and would like to stain our cypress exterior doors with this semi-transparent. Can we use this to stain the whole door…inside and out?

      1. Hi Mark,

        We don’t recommend using WOODguard Exterior on contact surfaces like doors because it is non-drying and leaves a slight oily residue on the surface of the wood. For these type of surfaces we recommend the Armstrong-Clark brand of stains which dry faster: https://blairstowndistributors.com/product/armstrong-clark-deck-stain/.
