Wood Staining

Gazebo Staining

Just finished staining this 25 year old gazebo. I used Benjamin Moore ARBORCOAT Stain-Translucent. Suitable for use on all types of wooden decking, siding and furniture and even gazebo's! I even stained the old cedar singles. Gave it a new life. Here is the before and after.

Flood Coating

This is how we apply stain, primer or paint to wood. We use a combination of airless and HVLP  sprayers. The idea is to  soak, saturate the wood with stain, paint or clear coat until the product is full. We do this in 3 stages around the log building

Staining Log Ends

How I Stain The Log Ends:

  • Use Titan Airless high pressure sprayer
  • Inject stain DEEP into the cracks and ends
  • Leave it for 5 minutes and brush out.
  • Repeat this sometimes up to 6 coats until the log ends do not absorb new stain

How Much Stain Do Apply On A Log Home?

Log Home Staining (before after) Timber Pro Coatings

Here’s a before/ after example of a Douglas Fir log shop stained and clear coated using Timber Pro Coatings.

This is a 3 coat process. Each coat is flood-coated, which means getting a log to soak as much stain as it will absorb per coat.  

As the stain absorbs into the wood you back brush it out until there are no drips or sagging (until it looks even and absorbed).  We do this three times around the building.

By the time you are on the 3rd coat, the wood is what we call “full” which means you no longer see any dry spots.
