Arborcoat Oil Stain Review

Product applies easily and the initial color looks great. It doesn’t seem to absorb in to the wood very well, definitively nowhere near how other oil based stains are absorbed. 14 month weathering test showed a pretty significant loss of color and darkening from mildew growth was beginning to occur.

    Buyer beware!
    Oil-based stain: Horrible and pervasive mold growth after 17 months, even in sunny and dry areas. It literally ruined my brand new, beautiful rough-hewn sided barn. Please be very careful using this product! I now need to somehow remove the mold (praying it hasn’t penetrated deeply into the wood) without damaging the siding (hand-scrubbing, no pressure washing) and re-stain my barn after less than 2 years. So disappointed in this product.

    + PROS: Easy to apply. Looked beautiful, but only after initial application and during first year
    - CONS: Oil-based stain: Horrible and pervasive mold growth after 17 months.
