  1. Janet Groome

    Liked the color, sprayed on well. easy cleanup. Rained right at the end of the project and it held up fine.

  2. La Verne Wilson

    Excellent product‼️ Very easy to work with.

  3. Johnny Coates

    Great product Covered well and looks great!

  4. Cory McDonald

    I used the Timber Oil on a fence. The fence is still new wood, about 40 days old. The Timber Oil maintained the natural look of the wood. The wood grains and all the natural colors of the wood still were visible. It was exactly the look I wanted while still protecting the wood from aging and weather. I found the product easy to apply, I used a pump can and a brush.
    I would highly recommend this product.

  5. N West

    Very easy to use and I love the color. Customer support is very friendly and helpful. I have placed a 2nd order within a month a month of the 1st order.

  6. Steven Wells

    This timber oil has worked beautifully on our log home. It has lasted for approximately four years. I highly recommend this product. I also like that it is free shipping to my home. Thank you Woodrich. Steven Wells in Chesapeake, Va

  8. Richard Royster

    When I called you company and spoke with Russell Cissle, I felt confident that I chose the right company to do business with, and comfortable that I was buying the right product for my application. I appreciate the help !

  9. Leslie Harvey

    I used the Timber Oil in Brown Sugar on old ( 5 year old deck and 10 year old fence) and new treated pine porch and railing. I chose this product because the company says it can be used on new pressure treated wood. I used the cleaner first on all of the wood, and then I used the brightener on the old wood only. Some of the old and new wood is right next to each other, and now it all blends nicely, not perfectly, but it looks really good. The color is more golden then I thought it would be and some of the color seemed to have lightened some on the new pressure treated after it rained, but the water still beads right up on all of it, and I only did one coat. I would have had major drip marks and overlap with other stains, but I didn’t have any at all with Timber Oil. I used a brush and roller on all of it instead of a sprayer. The wood soaked it right up, but overall, I ended up using less than I figured I would. Clean up was easy.

  10. Kay

    Woodrich Timber oil is easy to use for DYI’ers like my husband and me. We ‘ve had wonderful results on our decks and will be using this product for years to come. Thanks for an excellent wood stain!

  11. Patricia Johnson

    Product was everything (plus more) that it was advertised to be. My application was to a new (2 month old) cedar deck floor. I accidentally spilled some on the deck floor when pouring, dripped it across the deck, overlapped the application, and stepped in the stain tray and tracked it across the floor. Amazingly it all blended together and looks beautiful. Your product is absolutely foolproof!

  12. David A Toops

    This is a reorder of previously used product. Application is easy, and results are outstanding.

  13. Tina Archambault

    I ordered the 3 step system over a 2-3 year period and just finished up this week! I was lazy, to say the least, and our fence is big, so I procrastinated getting it done. We have bees coming May 1, so I was motivated to get it finished. It turned out really nice, however, I would have preferred the Signature Brown Timber Oil to the Brown Sugar. Brown Sugar is more orange on our cedar fence than I wanted and I didn’t know that Signature Brown was an option until I spoke with Russell on the phone later into the project, ordering more supplies to complete the project. When I am ready for more timber oil maintenance in several years, I will order the Signature Brown. Shipping is a killer for the Timber Oil, so if you have a large order, it’s best to make a note on your order for Russell to work with you to find a discount on shipping your order. If there was a way to post before and after pictures I would, but I don’t see a place to.

  14. Greg Williams

    I don’t always enjoy having to order online but this was easy to order and it shipped quickly. The honey gold looks great on our deck!

  15. Peter J Cartwright

    Fast shipping. Applied oil yesterday afternoon, was easy to do, will see how well it lasts. Very satisfied so far.

  16. David Lieberman

    The Timber Oil was a breeze to apply. I used a roller and a single coat did the job. My 1- yr. old, untreated, 600 sq. ft. redwood deck now looks as good as the day I placed the last plank. Where some shrinking/dying had made some boards squeak, they have returned to their original dimension and are totally quiet. Excellent penetration and absorption!

    I spent a lot of time researching sealing products for redwood and believe I made the best choice. I happily recommend Woodrich Timber Oil.

    This was the look I was searching for on my recently installed treated lumber deck. I wanted something to bring out the rich grain in the wood. The way it looks when it is wet. The water beads up well and it looks great wet or dry! Thank you Woodrich!

  18. David

    I have several things that I wanted to use this product on and thus far I have completed treating the wood floor on a utility trailer and completed the treatment of a 300 ft treated wood fence.
    I applied to product with a simple “pump up” sprayer. Very easy to apply and looks great.

  19. James Kelly

    New pressure treated yellow pine. Dried 2 months, sanded smooth, cleaned and brightened with Woodrich products, and applied Warm Honey Gold Timber Oil. Couldn’t be happier with the results. Very easy to apply also.

  20. Jason Hietanen

    Great product and great service!

  21. Elizabeth Leal

    Never painted a thing in my life! This stuff was so easy to work with! Didn’t dry sticky and looks as good as a professional! I was heavy handed painting so it looks much darker than my sample but it seems lighter today than yesterday so maybe it will lighten gradually.

  22. Karen

    The Woodrich stain I purchased and used on a rather large expanse of red cedar fence turned out beautifully. It enhanced the wood grain, rather than covering it, as some stains do, and was easy to apply. Russell was very helpful in discussing choosing a stain and I was able to buy a test kit of all the colors to try out on the wood for only $10–which I got back on my purchase. My non-graying fence is beautiful and I couldn’t be happier.

  23. Ed Truett

    this is a great product and very easy to apply . best color we have ever used, makes cedar look rich and vibrant. you will like this product!

  24. Anonymous

    Love your product and have recommended it to friends and neighbors. Great company to do business with. Have not been disappointed.

  25. Michael Kirk

    Please note, I’m rating this product as “Excellent” even though I haven’t started applying it to my fence and deck.

    Unfortunately, someone stole one of the 5 gallon (purchased 10 gallons) containers off my front porch before I got home.

    To complete the task, I have to re-order another 5 gallons before I start.

Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *

  • 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.

  • When applied to a 2 year old cedar fence, how long would you expect your product to last in South Louisiana?

    If the fence is facing southwest and is in full sun, all day, you should plan to reapply every 4 or 5 years.  The more shade the fence receives, the longer you can go in between maintenance applications.

  • What's the voc level and do you have to sand when reapplying years later

    The VOC level varies but all Woodrich Brand finishes are low VOC.

    You normally do not have to sand in between applications.

  • 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 well will this work on 40+ year old rough sawn fir logs? The logs were stained when the house was built 40 years ago and not since so there is zero moisture in these logs. Will the stain restore some moisture back in the logs.

    I would recommend the EFC-38, followed by the Citralic Brightener/Neutralizer.

    That should restore the logs to a fresh cut look.  Then you can apply the Timber Oil Deep Penetrating stain.  I personally like the Brown Sugar color on fir.


  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
