  1. Robert Crow

    The shipment as fast. Currently working on the staining. I did the railing first, it looks great. Will finish the decking later today.

  2. Jon Harkleroad

    Very easy to apply. Good color.

  3. Sheri

    This was my first time staining a deck and it couldn’t have been easier. Used a Wagner air sprayer and backbrushed immediately after spraying. I was afraid of the drips I made on the stairs while doing the raills but I just sprayed the stairs and backbrushed, and the drips disappeared! I wanted a stain that matched the hardwood floors inside my house and Amaretto is near perfect. My front porch and stairs look the best in the neighboorhood. Excellent product!

  4. Jim Bower

    This was my second order as I was so satisfied with the first. I used the honey brown on my cedar rails and the amaretto on the pressure treated deck. If the deck is cleaned and sanded to a new look, the two colors are almost a perfect match. I like the fact that there are no brush marks, even if you stop and go back.

  5. Mark Cordova

    I used Penofin for years. Woodrich Wiping Stain is by far the best product I have found for use on Ipe decks and railings.

  6. Kathy Rehfeldt

    The product went on very easily. We opted to brush it on vs. spraying and then come back and brush off the excess after 5 minutes.
    The only complaint that I have is the color. It is more “orangey” than I had hoped. I debated between the brown sugar and the amaretto and now wish that I had gone with the amaretto, or at least have had the luxury of time to order samples but I did not. Is it possible that when we restain next year that we could go over it with the amaretto and it would darken up a little?

  7. Keith Harkleroad

    I have just applied Woodrich Timber oil to new cedar outdoor furniture. The color is great and the stain goes on very easily. I let it sit for about 5 minutes before wiping off the excess. So far it takes about a day to dry well enough to feel safe sitting on it.
    I am going to let it weather as is (no sealer) through the winter and spring and then see about applying Woodrich Stain and Seal in the summer.

  8. AimJay

    We ordered last fall for our New pressure treated Pine deck. Never got to stain it due to the horrible weather so we just started the railings and I couldn’t wait till I finished the whole deck to write a review. It goes on so easy! Probably the easiest application I have ever done. It looks fantastic!! Thank You for a great product. Neighbors who have have expensive pvc and composite decking are envious of how great our deck looks!!! They wish they would have saved thousands and used wood and Timber Oil!

  9. Patty

    We treated new cedar steps, rail and fence. Application was easy with roller and brush.It is thin, not viscous at all, soaked in well. So, not a lot of removal of excess like other products.We saw it soak through to the other side at the knots on the fence (good penetration).The rough boards really soaked up a lot, so need to order more. 4 instead of 5 stars because too soon to know how it will last, and it is a bit brighter than anticipated by picture on website. Bright meaning looks less natural than desired. But should tone down with age.Overall very pleased so far.

  10. Janice

    We were dreading staining our new pressure treated pine deck because of past experiences with inferior products. I found your web site after searching for a short time and we decided to go with your product. It was easy and fool proof. Our deck looks amazing. We’ll probably wait until Spring and put on another coat with no hesitation. We highly recommend
    Woodrich Timber Oil.

  11. Bill Tabor

    Great service. And a Great product Looks really good on our big deck.

  12. Kelly Whipple

    Wow.. Great to work with. Every single person who has ever stained a deck has had drops or overlap. It really doesn’t matter when using this product. It actually soaked into the cedar decking and really gave a beautiful uniform finish. I did two liberal coats on deck. 5 gallons for 24×16+8×8 plus 3- horizontal fence panels, front and back, 4’x8′.

  13. AMP

    Very pleased with the product overall. This was my first time staining a deck. I used the cleaner and citralic before staining our PT pine deck and the results were excellent. The color is great, giving the deck a darker wet look that is transparent brown with a hint of yellow/orange. I used a staining brush exclusively and this went on flawlessly with no overlap even with days between applications. Very little dripping and splatter which was a nice surprise. Very rewarding to see your deck transformed with every stroke the wood soaks up. I will definitely use again, although hopefully not too soon!

  14. Matthew Rossi

    Fantastic support and delivery. Easy to use and really works well. I used this on pressure treated 10 year old wood that was never treated as well as new pressure treated wood. Both came out fantastic.

  15. Anonymous

    This is a great product! It produces a beautiful finish, is easy to apply with a garden sprayer – virtually foolproof – and very easy to clean up. I have been using it for 5 years and it can be re-applied annually to maintain the finish. Highly recommended!

  16. Allison Cappella

    Spoke to Russell twice concerning application process and he was very helpful and patient. Also spoke to Mary? To track my order and she also was helpful and courteous. Applying timber oil tomorrow and hopefully will continue to be satisfied.
    Thank you

  17. Greg Williams

    Just applied the honey gold and it went on easily. It looks great on our deck!

  18. Richard Piwowar

    Product went on flawlessly with brush and pad. I added a second coat and it was a little darker until it dried, now seems a touch more golden. First coat really penetrated but second coat not as porous so you use less product for second coat.

    Product was back ordered when order was placed but website said Processing. This is confusing to customer and should say back ordered and maybe send an email when expected back in stock or when shipped.

  19. Anonymous

    Haven’t used the product yet. Still waiting on monsoon weather to end in SC so I can use on new deck. But based on the amount of time I’ve invested on reviews, I expect satisfaction. From ordering to receiving, excellent service.

  20. Charley Rich

    Went on easy with a pad and looks great.

  • Do I have to apply the brightener immediately after cleaning with EFC-38? What is the maximum time I can wait between cleaner and brightener?

    You can apply the brightener right away after cleaning.  If there are puddles of water, try to broom those off before applying the brightener.  There is no maximum amount of time you can wait, as long as you apply the brightener at some point before you stain.


  • How soon do I have to apply the stain after using the cleaner and brightener? Can I wait a few days?

    Yes, you can usually wait up to about three weeks before the sun will start causing the wood to lost its natural color.

  • Is fence stain application temperature important or not?

    Yes. Fence stain application temperature is important. You can apply Timber Oil as long as the temperature is above freezing. The stain will take longer to dry in colder temperatures. On the other hand, you need to apply Hardwood Wiping Stain when temperatures are above 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Does using stains or sealers protect outdoor wood furniture?

    Yes. Using exterior wood stains or sealers is an excellent way in order to protect outdoor wood furniture.

  • Which outdoor wood furniture stains will you recommend for pressure treated woods?

    You can use either a deep penetrating stain or a hardwood wiping stain on outdoor pressure-treated wood and pine furniture.

  • What kind of wood stains should I use as my outdoor wood furniture stain?

    You can use either a deep penetrating wood stain or a hardwood wiping stain on outdoor wood furniture. The penetrating stain will finish more flat where the wiping stain will give the furniture a bit of luster. If your furniture is an exotic hardwood like Teak or Ipe, it is best to stick with the Hardwood Wiping Stain.

  • I used Timber Oil on my new Cedar deck last year. Can I apply another coat to freshen it up?

    Sure, rinse the surface with water and allow it to dry.  Then you can give the wood another light application.  This time around it should not require nearly as much product because you are just freshening up the surface.  Wipe any excess product off so you leave the surface damp, but not wet.

  • How long does it take the stain to dry before you can walk on it?

    If the temperature is in the 70’s its usually safe to walk across the deck with clean shoes after about 2 hours.  We don’t recommend scheduling any dance parties for at least a day or two.  If the wood is in the full sun, that will help the stain dry a little quicker.  When the wood is in the shade, or the temperature is cooler, it can take longer for the stain to dry.

    To replace deck furniture before the wood is completely dry, you can use shoe coverings.  These slip on covers will prevent you from tracking dirt into the finish.

    Older wood that absorbs a lot more oil can also take longer to dry.

  • Can the stain colors be mixed?

    Absolutely! Woodrich Brand uses transparent oxide pigments. So mixing the colors together is extremely easy.  We offer sample color kits so that you can test our stock colors. You can also experiment with blends to find the perfect color tone for your project.

  • Where can I find a Color Chart for the Timber Oil Deep Penetrating Wood Stain? I spent half an hour searching to no avail.

    You can visit the Gallery page and use the gallery search feature.  Type in the kind of wood you have and it will display pictures of the different colors on your type of wood.  We also offer a sample color kit that you can order to test the different colors yourself.

  • What is the best stain to use on pressure treated pine?

    Timber Oil deep penetrating stain is a great choice for new and aged pressure treated pine wood.  New pine should be cleaned and brightened before staining.  The Brown Sugar or Amaretto colors usually look best on pressure treated pine.

  • What is the best stain to use on cedar?

    We recommend Timber Oil deep penetrating stain for new and aged cedar wood.  Timber Oil does an excellent job of penetrating cedar wood.  The stain has a high degree of clarity because it is tinted with transparent oxide pigments.  It dries very natural and you can still see all of the grain and detail of the wood.

  • When should a new deck be stained or sealed?

    The sooner the better.  A new deck will begin to discolor in  as little as two weeks when  its exposed to the sun.  If pollen spores settle into the grain of the wood, they can become a food source for mold or mildew.  Staining and sealing the wood will help  protect it from the elements.  When protecting new wood for the first time it is usually best to clean and brighten the wood prior to applying any finish.

  • What do you use to clean up? Mineral spirits or soap and water?

    Use Mineral Spirits in order to clean up.

  • Is this a solid color stain or semi-transparent?

    This stain is not a solid color but rather semi-transparent.

  • Is this made for cedar? Will it repel bugs?

    This product can be used to protect cedar wood.
    It does not attract bugs, but at the same time, it is not sold as a bug repellent.

  • Mildew resistance and UV protection in semi transparent stain?

    Yes. These products work best in order to protect the wood from both.

  • Will this work on white or red oak in an exterior application?

    Yes. You can apply this product to oak, whether white or red and in an exterior application.

  • Would this work on sapele doors?

    Yes and no. You can stain the doors with this product. However, I would not expect it to last very long, more so if the doors are in the direct sun. This product is designed to dive deep into the wood in order to provide lasting protection. Sapele wood is similar to Mahogany. It has a density of about 640 kg/m3 or about 40 pounds per cubic foot. For a hardwood with that density, you might want to consider using a Hardwood Wiping Stain like this: Hardwood Wiping Wood Stain.

  • Can this be rolled on? And do you need to sand your deck first?

    You will only need to sand the deck if it rough or splintery. It is important not to over sand the wood.
    You can use a roller to apply, however this product is thin and tends to fling if you roll too fast.
    You might consider applying the stain to the wood using a pump-up garden sprayer and then laying it out with a stain pad applicator on a pole.

  • Do you need to apply sealer later or is it stain plus sealer in one like most stains?

    You will not need to apply a sealer later.

  • Which would be the darkest of the stains? Even though it is semi transparent.

    Amaretto would probably be the darkest of the stains on most types of wood. The color of the wood itself plays a big part in the final finish color.

  • Water or mineral spirits clean up?

    Use Mineral Spirits in order to clean up.

  • Will this wipe off of vinyl siding with mineral spirits or equivalent?

    Yes it will wipe off as long as the stain has not completely dried on the surface.

  • Hi, can you use a sprayer? If yes which one? For decking and railings.

    Any pump style garden sprayer will work. One with a fan tip will give you more control during application.

  • Any temperature considerations re: application? Worried about low temps at night.

    You should be good as long as it is not dipping down below freezing.

  • I am thinking of buying this for my deck. Do I need to remove the existing paint with power wash before I can use this?

    Yes. You should not apply this stain over an existing finish.
