just did a front porch with solid arborcoat. i was beautiful. it covers nicely and covered up a lot of sins from the previous painter. made me look like a hero to the homeowner.

i was going to go with SW deckscapes, but when i went to the store the staff member couldn't answer some very basic questions i had. so i very discouraged and quickly went to my BM dealer and got a gallon of arborcoat with his highest recommendation. i only used one product for this job, and am very proud of the results.

i highly recommend it and will use it again, and again.

hope this helps,

jonny

Default Cedar Deck

Just finished a deck with Arborcoat - Transparent Mahogony.

Sprayed the lattice, brushed everything else.

Sanded the deck boards with 60 grit with an orbital sander before.

Easy to use easy cleanup. I still prefer Timberpro UV, but I wouldn't hesitate to use Arborcoat again. Curious to see how it weathers.

Cheers.

Before


Fin




(unfortunately there's dirty barefoot tracks all over the deck in these pics from their kids playing soccer on the deck haha)

I sure am glad I can still sell the 550 voc Cabot stains. I still believe they are the best on the market (along with Sikkens.) Water based stains can't penetrate wood like oil can. And no one has been able to disprove that.

Arborcoat Transparent and Semi Transparent are water reduceable alkyds. They do penetrate.

Looks great. Is it not code in BC to put a handrail on anything over 2 feet?

Looks close to 2', I believe code here is 18", not for sure though. Could always pile some dirt around for "landscaping", now you dont need rails

not like a true oil. i've done many sample of both, pure oil with solvents penetrate best. and that's the most important thing when it comes to stains. BUT, if i was in an area where I couldn't use a pure oil stain, sure the arborcoat would seem like a good idea

A deck stain I found by shear accident and fell in love with is made by super-deck and it is one coat coverage and it is oil based and works like no other stain I have ever used. it rolls water off like a ducks back. and you don't need to sand the deck when you re apply it 3-5 years down the road.

I love using Arbor coat solid.

Although I havenít used it yet myself. I have seen the two coat system next to several competitors at the BM test farm. The two coat system seems to retain color much better than most one coat oils. After the initial two coat application all that is required for maintenance is a light cleaning, touch-up stain, and top clear-coat, usually possible in one day. No pressure washing, sanding, stripping required to retain that newly stained appearance. Sounds pretty good to me, I can't wait to start selling it this spring.

Justified ball breaking though .
