    Can "new" wood wait a year stored in a shed or does it need to be installed and exposed to the elements?

      Needs to be installed and then weathered.

    I had stained my home with cabots stain, Oxford brown five years ago. The clean up
    was with soap and water. Will this product work over the stain that is on there now.
    Will the product penetrate into the wood once it was done before with the stain I
    used in the past. I was told that I can’t use an oil based stain once I had used a water
    based product.

      No, you would have to remove the Cabot fully first.

    Can A.C. Semi-solid stain be applied to new KD PT pine decking without waiting a year as you suggest. KD lumber can usually be stained when new.

      No, it has to wait a year for the semi-solid, and KDAT cannot be stained right away even with the semi-transparent stain. That is false info they tell folks.

    Will AC semi solid oxford brown or espresso be able to cover this pressure treated wood?

      Not unless you remove the current stain.

    I’ve purchased A-C semi-solid Mountain Cedar to apply to a cedar porch that we have sanded to bare wood. After all that work and wanting this application to last as long as possible, we’re wondering if we should/could apply 2 coats with a short drying time in between coats. I believe I read that your semi-solid stain should not be applied wet-on-wet, is that correct? Would 2 coats help the finish last longer? The large side of porch faces south.

      Only one coat will work on this sanded wood. Do not apply two. It will not cure correctly.

        We thought a 2nd coat might give us longer longevity before we have to do this process all over again. How long will Mountain Cedar semi-solid curing take - week, or weeks, month(s), a year? We are prepared to wait a week between coats if we can gain longevity. Can we gain more longevity in years on our porch restoration if we apply a 2nd coat once the 1st coat has cured?

          No, more is not better and will not last longer or cure properly.

    I did my deck in semi transparent rustic brown and it looks wonderful! But I’m thinking next time I would like to go a bit darker and try your new expresso semi solid. 1. How long do I have to wait before I try another stain after apply this first one? 2. Can I put semi solid over semi transparent? 3. What prep would I do to the deck before I try a new stain?

    Previously used Behr Deckover on Michigan deck with disastrous results! Peeling year after year, application after application. Like the idea of semi-solid but cannot have the peeling issues again after spending two summers scraping, sanding and prepping! Is your semi-solid good for Michigan weather without peeling? If not, what do you recommend?

      It is a penetrating stain and does not peel.

    Is this product good for outdoor teak furniture?

      Sorry but no, do not use the semi-solids on furniture.
