Best Solid Stain For Red Cedar Fence?


Bidding on building 700ft of red cedar privacy and customer wants a very dark brown solid stain.

Recommendations??

Also wants both sides stained for longer life. Best to stain before install? Two sections will be up against neighbor fences.
(Round rail chain link)

Don't know how easy will be to stain fence once up.

Cabot's makes some good solid stains. Best to stain on sawhorses than after the fact due to stains tendency to run on upright boards. It's still doable but you'll have to constantly be back brushing the runs. Don't figure one coat will cover on a RSC boards, at least two coats will be needed.

Which shade structure? On our pergolas, we use polycarbonate sheets from Sundance Supply thanks to you a couple of years ago. On our pavilions we use true 2x6 Doug Fir T&G.

Re: Best Solid Stain For Red Cedar Fence?


Thanks, I could not see any roof type material at your site.

Sundance is a good outfit. The packaging is very secure and expensive. I have been using a place in Dallas lately. Popycarb is a good pitch using makes for no putting on finish upside down during a balance act on top during recoat. Only put the finish on one time.

Man, you have the tools for it !! Must be able to crank them out fast.
