    I bought more product than I need for my deck. Will the stain still be usable in a couple of years when I need to redo the deck again?

    Depends on if opened, unopened, and how well you store it. Make sure it is stored in a climate controlled area and that there is 100% closure so there is not any evaporation.

    We built a new pressure treated pine deck and screened porch last year in July and cleaned, brightened and applied stain in October. We want to apply another coat of stain now. I know we need to clean again but should we also brighten before applying this second coat. We used rustic brown. We have some small holes now in the screen. Could the Brightener have caused this? Thanks.

    You do not have to brighten, but you can. It does not harm screens.

    Hello,

    just finished a 20'x30' pressure treated deck...deck is located in Ontario Canada.
    your stain is highly recommended through online reviews.
    I was wondering which product of yours you would recommend and do you have any dealers in Toronto, Ontario, Canada?
    thank you for your time...

    No dealers there, but we can ship to you. Use the AC stain in any color that you like.

    I applied my sample stain color (a semi-solid) to wood that was washed, but not brightened. I have since washed and brightened the entire deck. But I wonder whether brightening affects absorption of color pigment. Will the semi-solid look slightly different if applied on brightened versus non-brightened wood? If so, will it be darker? thanks

    The brightener lightens the wood so yes the stain will look a little lighter in color once applied.

    I've just ordered your amber and mahogany samples. I have two Ipe Decks, one five years old that has never been stained and has naturally oxidized to the color of a Silver Back Gorilla and one that was built last month. I'm going to use a floor sander to prep both decks totaling about 700 sq. ft. Would not sanding negate my need for a cleaner and brightener? Thank You.

    You have to clean and brighten after sanding to open the grain and remove any sand dust. Use 80 grit or less for the sanding.

    Hi again - I've heard that you need to stain soon after sanding and brightening, and wanted to get your feedback on our schedule. We are sanding on the 11th, followed by cleaning/brightening on the 15th and staining on the 18th. Will this be optimal? Also, how long after staining before we can return furniture and traffic to the deck? Thanks!

    Yes this will work. Wait 24-48 hours after staining to put furniture back on.

    Thanks. So I don't need to re-rinse before applying brightener? Will it hurt anything to re-rinse before applying brightener?

    You can rinse first.

    I washed PT pine deck with RAD cleaner, and then rinsed a bit. Since directions say to "rinse very well", I had intended to rinse further, but I ran out of time. I also did not have time to do brightener step. It's been a week and deck has dried quite a bit. What should I do now? Will deck be OK if I just rinse really well, apply brightener, let dry and then apply AC stain?

    Apply the brightener and rinse. Let dry for 48 hours.

    Hi – we have a 2000+ sf cedar deck, 10 years old, and are restoring it. We are replacing rotten boards now. Can you let us know if we are on the right track with our restoration plan? The deck was painted ~7 years ago with a solid acrylic paint, unfortunately, which has mostly peeled off but is still present quite a bit under covered areas. After the rotten boards are replaced we are planning to have the deck sanded to remove all paint, then have a brightener applied, then one of your semi-solid stains. Advice? Thanks!

    Yes you will need to sand to remove the solid paint, brighten, then the AC semi-solid.

    Can your wood cleaner be used in a pressure washer, and would it be okay for me to sand the deck, pressure wash using your cleaner, and then apply your stain? Also, how long do you recommend we allow the wood to dry before applying your stain?

    No the wood cleaner cannot be used in a pressure washer. Best to apply with a pump sprayer. You can sand lightly first if needed. Let dry for 48 hours after the prep

    We have a brand new PT Pine deck that was installed last November... really beautiful. We are planning on using the transparent natural stain after a thorough power-washing. Do we need to use anything else to prep the deck?

    Yes prep with the Restore A Deck Kit.

    I cleaned and power washed my deck. I am ready to stain. I want a natural wood look so I am going to use your Transparent Natural Tone. My question is I have rough areas, especially on the top rails, do I need to sand them down or will your product fill in these spots and give a smooth finish so I wouldn't get splinters?

    Armstrong Clark is a penetrating finish so it will not fill in anything. You would need to lightly sand it needed. Use 80 grit paper.

    I have a 5 year old Ipe deck that has been stained every 2 years(mostly in full sun).Last time we just power washed and used AC Mahogany color. Do you recommend doing something more than power washing for better results.
