    10 year old Tigerwood deck. Hasn't had any work done to it in 7 years and was badly worn. I was skeptical about achieving very good results, but was pleasantly surprised. Used the Restore-A-Deck stripper and Booster with pressure washer. Then used Restore-A-Deck brightener. Applied the Armstrong Mahogany Hardwood stain and was very pleased with the results. I will follow the process of annually using the Restore-A-Deck cleaner and re-stain with Armstrong Hardwood stain every year as recommended for these Brazilian hardwoods.

    New pressure-treated pine fence; stain is Armstrong Clark's semi-transparent Rustic Brown. Previous fence was leveled by hurricane Irma. I researched and researched for the best semi-transparent stain for the Southeast US (humidity, weather, high heat index) and Armstrong Clark kept popping up. The product used for the stain prep was Behr Premium 1-gal. All-In-One Wood Cleaner. GREAT product! I had no issues applying this stain in 80% humidity with the outside temperature ranging from 85° - 95°. I highly recommend Armstrong Clark, especially if you live in South Florida.

      PS I was referring to the stain when I said "great product!". The way I wrote it, it looked like I was referring to the preparation product.

    17 year old partially covered porch IPE wood deck. Initially we finished with popular high end oil/stain product . Over time sun and age killed the finish and left all surface dark grey. We power washed. hand scrubbed and machine scrubbed with little success . We researched and found that Armstrong Clark product was high rated. I called their tech dept and they were very willing to help and spend time discussing my circumstances. I then ordered sample . Tried sample and very impressed after rain, cold and hot New England spring. We ordered the step three refinish products . After seeing it a long time contractors fiesta response was “ did I sand it”. The raw wood finish was beautiful after 17 years of neglect. Since we used the hardwood mahogany finish we’ve received rave compliments from everybody who’s seen it. Almost everybody asks us if we installed new decking before the finish work. By far best product I’ve used. Makes me and my wife look like professionals. Front porch is beautiful .

    10 year old weathered cedar deck exposed to the sun and ocean salt air (as well as a picnic table). It was brushed and new nails added where the planks had warped. Armstrong Clark Semi-Transparent Cedar was used with a foam deck brush and back-brushed by hand to prevent pooling of pigments. Pleased with the results. Rain water now pools and beads on the surface and it was popular with visiting family.

    My 20 year old cedar deck needed some TLC. I sanded it, replaced the stringers (with new pressure treated), stairs (with new cedar), and railing (with glass and aluminum). All wood sanded to 80 grit. Used Armstrong Clarke Amber stain. Easy to apply and looks great!
