    We had a dilapidated old fence in our backyard that was an eyesore when we purchased the house. After pressure washing, we then applied Armstrong Clark's semi transparent cedar stain.  It now looks great.

    Can I enter this contest from Canada, or is this USA only? Love your products, Carolyn

    I stained my cedar deck using the restore-a-deck system (cleaner and brightener) as well as the semi-transparent cedar stain.

    I used your Amber wood stain on my Ipe outdoor deck two years ago. It still looks really good despite the tough Atlanta, Ga climate. My question is this; I have a half gallon of the stain left and just opened the can to do some touch up on the deck and it has quite a bit of sediment at the bottom of the can. Once the can is opened, how long is the useful life of the stain that remains in the opened can. Said another way, If I used this stain two years ago and reopened the can to use the remainder of the stain, is that stain still ok to use?

      Shelf life is 12 months after opening. It has probably gone bad.

    This is our front porch floor. We want to stain it using your semitransparent stain. It has been stained, but as you can see it's weathered and peeling in spots. I'm wondering if we can just use your 2 step process and then stain, or do you think we need to sand? Thank you for your input. We just ordered 4 samples!

      You will need to remove it fully first.
