How much will you need?
I had 165 ft of brand new cedar fence (not sq ft) that needed to be stained on both sides (that would be 330 ft total in length). The fence is a staggered privacy fence that arches in the middle up to 6ft and the post are generally 4x4. I ended up buying 20 gallons of this stain to get the job done. Waited about 4 months to stain the fence after it was installed so I skipped the prep work and just power washed it and applied the stain. The fence would just absorb the stain. Note that applying this to a fence is no easy task and will take time, even with a pump sprayer + brush.
Some tips to help using this conservatively and not wasting as best you can.
If you wanna use this stuff as conservatively as you can like me to save money. I used a pump sprayer and found the best nozzle to use is an adjustable one. The recommended ones would just spray too much on there and a lot would drip off. At first 2 gallons would with two coats would be gone in just applying it to two sections of my fence. I switched out the nozzles to the adjustable one and cranked it down so that it would spray with a lot of mist and very slowly. This made it more conservative to apply and you use a brush anyways to even out the coat. I was able to get A LOT more out of 2 gallons for areas that I didn't care about as much like the outside facing parts. Less can be more with this stuff, you can really get into the perfection habit. The more you apply, the darker it will be and it might make you think the non darker areas you applied to before hand didn't have any stain there.
Clean up / prevention tips.
It is water based but don't expect it to just wash away like magic with water or soap. If it gets on your siding/concrete or something, it doesn't seem to come off easily with soap and water. Instead, here's a pro tip I recommend. Prep spray down whatever area you might get this stuff with a garden hose or whatever first. Just don't get the wood wet but try and soak that area. Then apply your stain and rinse that area as you go or afterwards and you'll see it just wash away nicely. I wish I figured that out beforehand as that made it SO MUCH EASIER! You can clean your equipment with soap and water yes but don't expect it to be like brand new. Your pump sprayer and brushes will be stained, it's similar to painting a house and your equipment will look used.
The stain itself.
Looks like there's two versions of this stain and I got a mix of the two. I'm guessing the older stain due to the bottle not looking as nicely as the newer one with better graphic design has a lighter more light brown color. This stain when poured looks like milk chocolate milk. The newer stuff, which I preferred is darker and looks more naturally when applied. It pours like dark chocolate milk and the wood looks better IMO. Yes you should combine all of these stains into one mix but I didn't have time and ordered as I went. So I used the lighter stuff for the outside fence and the darker for inside.
All in all after all my research of reviews of other brands like TWP, ready seal, Defy, etc I chose this one due to the price, reviews, and water based to avoid mold/mildew. My neighbors used Behr which their outside had a lot of mold/mildew and the reviews for Behr didn't seem that good. If I'm going to do all the work, I want the best for the right price. Also, on one of my larger orders they included a nice brush which I ended up using over the one I bought.
I applied this in September 2019 so please remind me to update/post pictures on how the stain has held up since then since this product seems newer and not many reviews or comments out there as to how it holds up. It seems to be close to Defy's water based product so I'm hoping for similar if not better results.
I've used this product twice (2x) now; the first time in 2018 and the 2nd in June, 2019 - and as of today, I have to knock off a star. Today, I noticed that the stain is chipping and peeling in quite a few places and I don't think it did that great of a job of sealing the wood. Unfortunately, some of my floorboards are now splitting and cracking, which means that now I have to do quite a bit of repair work before cleaning and staining. The coloring is great - I'll give it 5 stars for the color but, 2 stars for the overall quality. I could see if the color faded some and the wood was just dull-looking after 10 months but, I didn't expect this. Especially since this past winter, it's been mild here in PA (I only had one "mini" ice storm and 2 inches of snow for the whole season so, I would have thought that this stain/sealant should have held up better). Time to look for another stain/sealer...
Either replace the fence or try to improve its appearance. I read the reviews about #1 Deck and decided to give it a try.
The fence was structurally sound but was really ugly with en-grained black and green mold/mildew and was overall a dark mottled grey. I live in the Atlanta area so heat and high humidity are a fact of life.
Over the years I have seldom purchased a product where the real life finished results mirror the advertising hype. I am happy to report that Deck 1 stain is one of the rare few where, if anything, the results were better than advertised.
Follow the instructions, clean the wood surface properly beforehand and I am sure you will be happy with the results. I know I was when I used the Light Walnut color. My old deck almost looks like I put it up two months ago.
