Water marks on stained fence


Does anyone have an idea what went wrong on fence panels? It's a solid stain on kiln dried redwood. It was put up for 2 weeks and recent rain storm left some type of water marks. Not sure if it goes away with time.

Looks as if the top of the rail wasn't well enough sealed and moisture got into the wood and is bleeding through.

Re: Water marks on stained fence


The fact that it gets darker on the lower boards makes me think the top boards were dirty and the dirt just ran down the board and then dried in place. Maybe it wasn't enough rain to completely wash the dirt off. Have you tried hosing it off or lightly pressure washing it?

I called Olympic paint and tech guy said it's called tanin, Something to do with moisture trapped inside wood, common with redwood and cedar. Not sure about moisture in panels since there kiln dried. Anyways tech said to try soap and water. Will try over weekend and update if it works.

Re: Water marks on stained fence


how long did you let the boards dry out before applying the stain?
