I'm hoping to purchase one of your stains for a cedar deck in Nova Scotia Canada.
Do you know how long it would take for shipping?

Hi, I have a deck that is 8yrs. old, and has been stained approx. 3 times. I just had an addition, and need something that would cover both stained & not stained, and turn out to be the same color. Can you help ?
I just finish installing my new western red cedar deck. I'll have to wait about 3 months to apply a stain to the wood. That takes me to beginning of October. Should i stain it before winter or just wait in spring?
We are just installing a new cedar deck here in Seattle, Washington. Two questions:
1. We want to highlight the grain and tone of the wood as much as possible. What color would you recommend?
2. We want to wait 3 months for the deck to 'season', but that pushes us into the beginning of the rainy season. Would you recommend shortening the 'seasoning' time or waiting to stain until spring? Non-rainy periods become few and far between beginning in mid-September.
I have 10 year old pressure treated deck what product would you recommend to stain with. thanks for your help sonia
Amber is the same as the Super Cedar, just renamed.[/quote]
Thanks! So just for clarification, what is the reason for the additional cost for semi-transp. amber over semi-transp. cedar? Colorwise, they look similar. I understand the amber is formulated for hard woods, but does this mean it will perform better on a standard deck? Should I go with semi-transp. cedar since my deck is NOT made of exotic hardwood? Thanks for your help!
About 4-5 years ago, I stained my deck using a color called "transparent super cedar", which is no longer offered. I'd like to re-stain this Spring and was hoping to order the same color. Doing a quick google search, someone mentioned that super cedar is now the amber color? I'd like to purchase whichever color is the closest match and not sure whether to go with a transparent or semi-transparent color since the super cedar did have a nice rich tone that makes me think it was more of a semi. Thanks!
i live in Virginia, have a 7 year old pine deck than has twice been treated with Cabot's Australian Timber Oil- Mahogany Flame. That is no longer available in my state. I want to re-stain the deck floor boards & hand rails, but not the pickets (they don't need it), so I want something that will match. do you think that I could mix 2 of your colors to match what I have? I plan to pressure wash the deck but not strip it.
I have a new "heart redwood" deck. 1) Please confirm that the right stain would be your regular stain rather than the "Hardwood/IPE" stain.
2)The deck was installed around Oct 1 and it will be freezing and snowing here in Colorado mountains very soon. Should I wait until spring to apply? 3)Should I pretreat? Thanks
After install you should let the wood weather untouched for 3 months. After weathering you will need to prep with the Restore A Deck Kit. Not sure what you mean about "primed"? If you mean a primer paint then you cannot use the Armstrong.
I will be installing T&G fir flooring (non-PT) on a covered front porch and would like to stain it. Prior to staining I plan to use a floor sander to provide a smooth surface. What sort of preparation is recommended before using an AC stain? This will be new wood that has been primed on the back and all sides prior to installation. It may also be worth noting, I have now had this wood stacked on the porch for about 1 month.
I have a new pressure-treated pine deck that is 4 weeks old. When can I apply a deck stain?
I recently bought a townhouse with an 18-year-old deck, probably made of pressure-treated pine. Looks like it was never stained or sealed.
It's not in great shape, but I think I can get some more years out of it if I take care of it properly. I plan to pressure-wash it as a first step.
It's on the east side of a one-story building, so it gets sun for about half the day, maybe a little more. Located in the Northeast US (plenty of cloudy days, and long winters.) Would a transparent stain be appropriate, or should I go semi-transparent?
Also, if I started out with Natural Tone, could I put one of your other shades over it later on if I wanted to?
