Solid Color Stains


I want to paint some pressure treated wood with solid color stain. But is it better to prime the wood first or is it a waste of time?

Most that I've seen do NOT require priming. I've only heard of priming for a solid stain in very specific situations. With Sikkens Rubbol DEK product you just use two coats of the product. It self primes on the first coat. Most should perform the same way.

I will probally use Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Willaims stain. I thought maybe a primer would give the top coat more longevity. I don't know if Sikkens is available in my area; I'll check. Thanks.

Between the two I'd go Ben Moore just based on what I've been hearing lately. SW stains seem to be lacking quite a bit now days. From what I've heard locally they no longer even carry an oil stain here and almost no oil products at all.

Sikkens is even better if you can get it. I like Cabot better than BM...

Sikkens is definitely the way to go. They are making VOC compliant products now so they should be available in most areas.

Thanks,
I found two stores in my area that carry the Sikkens products.
