What would be the preferable roller for application of this product

Asked by: wind_rose
Thanks for taking the time to ask a question. We don't recommend using a roller. For best results apply with a natural-bristle brush or professional spray equipment. I hope that helps. Respectfully, Reggie

How to remove splatters dried on aluminum siding? Soap and water does not remove.

Asked by: CJAH
I'd suggest using a Bug and Tar Remover which is a gentle blend of solvents (often found in Automotive stores) to remove the splatter.

Can Cabot Semi-Transparent Deck and Siding stain be sprayed on?

Asked by: larry 213

Lowes directed me not to apply the stain to our deck (it's been properly prepared) if rain is forecasted for the two weeks following application. Since that's probably impossible, what would you suggest is the correct timing?

Cabot Deck and Siding Stain - Neutral Base - Semi-Transparent - 3.43-L is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great on our 1901 Frank Lloyd Wright House Our 1901 Frank Lloyd Wright House, clad in Cypress board and batten siding, was stained with Cabot's stain according to the close out documents when it was built. We went with Cabot's because the original stain performed extremely well and the house has 95% of the original 1901 siding still in place. We went with Cabot's when the house restored. The performance and aesthetic quality of Cabot's Semi-transparent stain has been awesome lasting on average for 4 years. The key to getting high performance is do the preparation work well and according to Cabot's recommendations. This is a very quality product that performed very well and is quite beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased We switched to oil-base pigmented stain to end having to deal with chipping or peeling coatings, and haven't looked back. I used it on a tack shed exposed to brutal Montana winter cold, summer heat, and dry conditions. It has performed very well and was easy to touch up at 3 years (one of the great things about an oil-based pigmented stain). I then re-surfaced the deck on the south side of the house (brutal conditions) and have been very happy with the performance. I only had to touch up the stairs at 2 years where heavy traffic began to show. But again, the beauty of an oil-based stain made it a breeze.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not recomended - Peeling after 1 winter I built a new set of stairs leading to my backyard last year. The wood used was Western red cedar. I followed the manufacturer recommendations to a 'T.' The wood was installed 2 month prior to staining, it was cleaned and dry and I waited for temperatures to be in the optimal range suggested on the label. The stains applied very well and looked great all summer and winter, but started to peel on all horizontal surfaces in the spring. Even my handrail which started peeling. I didn't use any salt and did not take the snow off all winter. On the other hand, the Timber oil variety of this product looks great after one winter and was installed on my Pergola.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Great... Oil based formula - I've had mixed results with this product. Good color selection, good coverage. For the first time used, it seemed to hold up very well. HOWEVER, in subsequent years, it faded, cracked and peeled. I generally re-applied after 3 years, but the most recent application cracked and peeled after 2 years. I get the sense that over time, the more layers of the product on your deck the greater the chance it will stop adhering like it does to wood that was not previously stained. NEVER apply with a roller!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Semi Transparent Stain Applied stain last summer over new pressure treated deck, which I sanded before finishing with Cabot - after one winter, about a dozen boards had sections where the stain wore off - just spent the past few days scrubbing the affected boards using deck cleaner, to completly remove remaining stain - once these boards are dry, will sand, and if water doesn't bead, plan on putting on the same stain - now, do I just do the refinished boards, or lay down another coat on entire deck for uniformity - in the future, if the deck remains in good shape, and I want to refresh the appearance, does one have to sand the entire deck to apply a new coat ??

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I have used Cabot stains for over 40 years. I have been cabinetmaker, carpenter, deck builder. Most the of the complaints I read on this website are from people who do not understand how to prepare wood for paint, stain, etc. All treated or untreated lumber have been surfaced finshed in a planer which creates bands of wood more compressed..this leads to uneven paint, stain etc. penetration. You MUST sand ALL wood prior to staining, painting ect to remove the alternating dense/less dense surface layers. Also,, stain is not paint, it is not varnish, and cant be expected to behave in the same way. If you want a product you can apply once, without any surface preparation, buy something plastic. Another thing to remember is if you apply varnish or paint, when it comes to time to recoat, you will have to strip or remove the old varnish or paint..and it is a time consuming, expensiver process, regardless if you do it your self or hire it done. With stain, you can administer a light sanding with orbital sander and recoat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cabots is the best deck stain! I have a lot of experience staining decks, and will always use Cabot's semi-transparent on new decks if given the choice.  I use Cabot's semi-solid more often, because most of the decks I re-finish are older and have some weathering.  The semi-solid has more pigmentation, and so it covers some minor imperfection, such as weathering, stains, and uneven staining from prior. The semi-solid can last anywhere from 3-5 years before it needs to be re-stained, whereas the semi-transparent lasts about 1-3 years.   On new decks the semi-transparent is best because it penetrates furthest into the wood, is lighter in pigmentation, so it enhances the natural graining, and is more natural looking, and not so obtrusive.   Cabots oil based stains use a linseed oil base which makes the wood look beautiful as well as offering inherent protection from moisture (as oil will repel water). The added bonus is that oil based stains will not peel.  Any water-based coating on a horizontal surface will eventually fail, so I try to avoid using them unless someone else has put it on first.   This is a great product, use it with confidence. One caveat, however, if you live in humid climates, or have a deck in mostly shaded areas, mildew will thrive on oil based stain.  So, it is important to add a shot of mildewcide into the stain to prevent this, and don't hesitate to rinse of your deck once a year or so with a mixture of bleach/water/jomax, etc...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Product! I have no complaints about the semi-transparent Cabot stain. We used New Cedar and like the color still. I like to see plenty of grain still and that's what you get with this product. The only gripe I would have is that the coverage says 400-500sf when the actual coverage is about half of that when applied with a deck staining pad and brush (trim). Other that that it's held up well for about 3 years on our front porch and we are now applying to the back decks!
