What would you recommend in terms of stain? And what works best with fillers (like Dap plastic wood?) We're replacing some of the boards but trying to minimize and restore as much as possible. Also dead set on oil so Armstrong is at the very top of our options. We like the look of the grain and re-coating/maintenance is not an issue for us. Also debating between a lighter color for temperature and a darker color for drama. Any ideas are welcome!!! (Picture does not show complete restoration - we got rid of every spec of deckover in the end.)
We will reply to your comment shortly· 10/13/2018FYI, wood filler will not work on exterior wood. It will not "stain" to blend with the deck stain and will look terrible. It also will not survive a cold Winter. In short, never us a wood filler.
As for the stain, the AC will work well. Use a semi-transparent color.
