About Exterior Wood Stain

Our exterior wood stain has been developed for staining all types of wood used outdoors. It is based on the same technology as our regular Wood Stain, but is made a little thicker to suit exterior wood. This means it can also be used on interior wood too (if you prefer one of our exterior wood stain colours).

It is a great garden furniture wood stain, and can also be used to stain windows, doors, cladding and all other items of exterior wood.

After using the Exterior Wood Stain, we recommend treating the wood with Teak Oil. This will help protect the wood and keep it looking newer for longer.

Exterior Wood Stain is Suitable For

Our Exterior Wood Stain can be used on all types of exterior wood (such as oak, pine and teak), and can be used on items of wood, such as:

Garden Furniture
Windows

Exterior Wood Stain Instructions

The Exterior Wood Stain can be used to stain new wood, and it can also be used to restore older wood. You must first prepare the wood, and then stain it.

Preparation for staining

New Wood: If you have a new(ish) item, it is probably ready to stain without doing anything. However, some wood can be treated, so it is best to sand it with a #100 Fine Sanding Pad before applying any stain.

Bare Wood: Needs to be sanded first to create a smooth finish. Sand with 120 grit sandpaper, then with #60 Coarse Sanding Pad, then #100 Fine Sanding Pad or equivalent sandpaper.

Used Wood: May be painted/varnished. If so, remove any old coatings using a Paint & Varnish Remover. If the wood has been treated with an oil/wax, wipe the surface down with Thinners to remove this. Sand smooth with #100 Fine Sanding Pad.

Applying Exterior Wood Stain

Ensure the surface is clean and any saw dust or dirt has been removed.

Shake the bottle thoroughly to mix the stain. If you are unsure of the colour, test it on an unseen area first.

Apply with a Lint Free Cloth, Foam Brush or bristle brush. Apply liberally, going in the direction of the grain; leave it to soak in for a minute, then wipe any excess off using a Lint Free Cloth.

Lots of wood used outdoors, such as garden furniture, doesn’t always have a smooth finish like interior wood. If this is the case, you’re best using a bristle brush to apply the wood stain.

Wait for about 10 minutes for the stain to dry. Once dry, a second coat can be applied if desired; apply in the same way as the first.

After staining the wood, it should be finished with a varnish or oil. We recommend Teak Oil for outdoor use.

Once dry the stain is water resistant and it won’t be affected by rain. It should be dry within 10 minutes but we recommend waiting at least 30 minutes before exposing it to any water.
