Default Flood Stain?

Does anyone use Flood stains on a regular bases? If so how does it hold up?

Flood stains are hard to manage. I'd suggest absorbing as much of the moisture as possible. Damages may occur and so on...Tricky

What damage are you speaking of? Who doesn't let the deck dry before applying?

I don't believe any of the Flood stains are penetrating. This means they lay on the surface of the wood, much like a paint. Once the coating starts to wear, either from the sun, or from furniture being moved around, (on a deck) the surface must be stripped and then resealed.

We prefer to use ready seal. It is a penetrating stain, and can simply be washed and recoated when needed.

I was wondering how long it really holds up.

Flood stains do penetrate.

I'm with flooding timber for painting outdoors and in most cases, the color flooding Stain. The results are excellent, I can guarantee beyond the restoration and preservation of wood, work without fear!

Flood protection is beautiful products are designed to protect natural forests and work on many other surfaces.

Flood is one of the better brands for a cheaper exterior stain. I think their oil based stains are better than their acrylics.

We have been using Sikkens for years and Flood is part of the Sikkens family.

I've used Flood on my old deck, then tried Ready Seal last year. The difference was night and day.

You are absolutely right Phil. The Flood stain doesn't compare to Ready Seal. Here is an example of a deck railing that had been coated in a "film forming" flood product, CWF. Notice the stain is actually laying on the surface, not penetrating.

It is less likely to hold up for long as it is not so good at penetrating. Will get worn off over a period of time

Here are a few tips to a better stained deck:
1. Prepare your wood before you stain your deck. Apply a wood preparation liquid that seeps through the pores and prepares the wood for the stain. If the stain does not penetrate the wood, they will lay on the surface and peel off faster.
2. It is a good idea to contain a stain that includes pigment. Pigments increase the life of a stain. Semitransparent stains have a longer life than solid stains.
3. Identify stains that will do well on horizontal and vertical surfaces. Most stains cannot handle foot wear and tear, dirt and dust abuse, sliding items. Find a stain that can withstand all these. Flood's deck (semitransparent) stains guarantee that their paints will not come off in three years.
4. Select colors that can go well with the exteriors of your home. Sometimes the clashing colors give a garish outlook. The two-tone colors look wonderful on large decks.
5. Lay your deck well so that there is adequate support for your deck. Sometimes, because of inadequate planning the deck bends on one side causing the paint at that end to look shabbier.
6. It is also essential to remove all previous paints from the deck. Scrub the surface till the wood gleams from within.

Test to check if Wood is ready.

That's what I mean. I'd give it a try. Seems quite efficient. Thanks for the plan.

Today, Flood is one of the best producers of specialty wood stain and paint additive solutions, with products designed to restore, protect and enhance the natural beauty of wood. Most important is the quality and durability of their products. As I already mentioned above, I always choose this brand for any exterior wood surfaces such as decks, fences or sidings. I am usually handling large exterior painting projects, offering years of warranty without concerns.

I do use their wood cleaner for my garden deck cleaning. Best is that it does not enclose bleach in it so wont damage fibers of wood or its usual look.

I agree with you. I have used it once and it isn't so good at penetrating.
