Your Guide To Staining Port Orford Cedar

Posted by on August 28, 2019

If you want a durable wood for your deck, railing or fencing, look no further than Port Orford Cedar. Known for its natural durability, Port Orford Cedar is 40% stronger than other commonly used cedar options. But that doesn’t mean you can overlook standard maintenance. 

We want your outdoor cedar applications to last a long time, so here’s our guide to protecting your investment:

  • After installation, pour or spray water onto your Port Orford Cedar. If the water absorbs in 10 minutes or less, it’s time to stain.
  • Choose a UV and mildew resistant oil-based stain (Rick’s Fencing can make suggestions on the best kind for your needs).
  • Clean your cedar with a hose or light pressure washing and clear the wood of any obstructions, like potted plants or deck furniture.
  • Wait until the surface of the cedar is between 40 and 80 degrees.
  • Apply stain in a thin layer, wiping off excess as you go.
  • Restain your Port Orford Cedar every 2-3 years for continuous protection from the elements.
