RE: Samples
Quoting James T:
I'm interested in the shine and protection of polyurethane to my new douglas fur deck. After applying the AC transparent Cedar stain can I apply one or more coats of polyurethane?

No. It is a very bad idea to make a deck look shiny or top coat it with a poly. It will blister, peel, attract mold, and will be a nightmare to fix.

RE: Samples
I live in New York City and a two year old deck. My deck is exposed to hot summers and snowy winters. My stairs are exposed to the sun year round but the rest of the deck is under an awning.Would you recommend a semi-transparen t or a semi-solid for my deck. I am leaning towards a natural wood look but I want to protect my deck as much as possible. Thank you

I read where it you are not suppose to have wood filler in the deck. Unfortunately, I had already filled some holes with wood filler. Any advice on how to proceed with your stain. Also, I'm not sure where my form is that I had order four sample stains. Is there any way I can still get credit for the 5 gallon container.

Hello, there is no way to darken the filler with the AC stains. You could possibly darken the filler with a similar color in a Minwax stain but not sure if that will blend or not.

Fro sample credit, we need an invoice for the sample order.

Hello
I have a wood deck (pressure treated pine, about 3 years old, unstained/unpainted) and I had an addition installed (new wood, pressure treated pine, almost 2 1/2 month ago). Should I be using the semi-solid or can I use a semi transparent? I noticed the semi-solid indicates that it not be used for 1 year old or less. Thank you

Semi-trans as the semi-solid has to be 1 year. Clean and brighten all the wood for the prep with the Restore a Deck Cleaning Kit.

I have approx 2700 square feet of a 10 year old cedar fence that has been pressure washed and ready to treat.....never been stained or treated before. Can you recommend the number of gallons it should take to cover this area using 2 coats of your semi-transparent stain?

Does the 2700 sq. feet cover both sides? You will need about 20-25 gallons for the two coats and 2700 sq. feet.

Redwood tone has UV protection. For even more protection from UV, use the Sierra Redwood.

Hi, I wanted to make sure that the oxford brown stain is appropriate for an IPE deck. Does it need a sealer after the stain?

The Oxford Brown is not for IPE. Use the Amber, Mahogany, or Black Walnut.

You cannot apply a sealer over a deck stain nor is there a need. The AC is a sealer as well.

I'm a little confused about whether to use your 1 part bleach to 3 parts water formula or the RAD cleaner. After reading some of the questions the readers have asked, I'm inclined to do the RAD cleaner and skip the bleach method. Is this correct analogy?

The RAD prep is better for the wood and is a better prep overall.

All of the AC colors are tinted and will enhance the grain based on the color you would like. The Natural is the lightest tint and is similar to a wet look.

Thank you for the response.

I have heard sanding is almost required with the BM stuff. So process should go sand, cleaner, brightener, AC stain....correct?

That is correct!


Thanks for the quick responses...one last question though.

I have read belt sanding along the grain of the wood is best to sand the cedar deck...would you go to an 80 grit paper to really get this old BM stain out? Thanks again!

60 to 80 grit.

Hello, i'd like to get a sample of your black walnut. A customer wants a dark brown stain on his ipe deck to match what he had on it before. I don't know what it was, but haven't found any other dark brown deck stain for ipe beside yours. I could not find a black walnut for hardwoods in the samples. There was only a semi transparent black walnut available. Thank you,

It is the same. There is only one version of Black Walnut. It is color designed for hardwoods but can be sued on all wood types as well.

Hi…

I have a 2 year old cedar deck that I stained after a few months with Benjamin Moore Arborcoat semi-transparent stain…it is junk and started to peel after the first winter. I waited another winter to get as much of it off as possible “naturally”, but need to do the staining again this year.

I have heard odd things about AC and will try the “Cedar” semi-transparent, or Amber (will get some samples though).

I live in Vancouver, BC so we get a fair amount of rain, and possible snow.

My question is what is recommended approach to get this horrible BM product off the deck, and prep it so I can stain with the AC product this season? I have a big flat (2x6”) cedar deck with a one step (along the entire edge) going down to the lawn. No railings to worry about.

Many thanks!

Thanks.

Sequoia would be closest to what you are looking for.

Sorry but that is not possible. The old coating must be removed if you to want to use a semi-transparen t.

I really like the natural look of Tigerwood and have recently ordered material to replace my existing deck. You recommend Amber versus Natural Tone Transparent because, I assume, natural tone transparent is not properly formulated for exotic hardwoods? By the way, I live in Michigan and my deck is covered but will get sun.

You can use any of the colors of AC on Tigerwood. The Amber was designed though to give a little better UV protection.

Your stain was recommended but I don't see a color I like. I was hoping for something cedarish with some red in it. I'm assuming as old as my wood is most any color will turn out darker than what you show. Any color recommendations for my type of deck? I'd like to go with a semi transparent stain. If I buy a 5 gallon bucket and don't use it all how long of a shelf life will the leftovers have? Could I mix colors?

Yes you can mix colors with the AC stains. Shelf life of an opened 5 gallon pail is about 12 months or less. Possiblly longer, but depends on how well you store it.

Please tell me how well Armstong Clark works in this are of the USA? Can you share pros and cons with me? As well as using an airless sprayer to apply your product.

The AC can be sprayed, but you will need to back brush to ensure it is evenly applied. Typically lasts about 2 to 3 years for most deck surfaces. The semi-solid colors would give the longest life in your environment.

because of the poor condition of the logs on all but the north side of my cabin I probably need a penetrating stain for conditioning. is your semi-solid stain penetrating or does it basically coat the log?

The semi-solid is a penetrating stain as long as you prep the wood properly and remove all previous coatings, if any.

I'm trying to match the pigmentation of a nail-hole-filling saw flour paste with the colour of an original application of your stain. The 'filler' likely won't take stain, and I'm wondering whether the color of your stain will darken with each subsequent application. (if so, my 'patches' would become progressively more apparent with each application).I'm thinking in particular of semi transparent or semi solid cedar.

Thanks in advance

Depends on how you prep. If you clean and brighten correctly, then it will not darken much through the years.

Hi,

1. A few years ago a stripped, brightened a large mahogany porch and finished with your product...came out great. It is a little worn now in places so I guess it's time for a redo or some patching. So what do I do? Can I use a cleaner and then stain over what I have or do I strip and brighten again?

2. I also have a deck that sits over a lake so I want to be environmentally conscious. So when it's time to redo the deck I can power wash, but don't think I should use anything too strong. Do you have any stains or finishes that don't require a lot of heavy strippers when its time for a redo?

Any thoughts would be helpful. Please email or call 617 835 3694.

1. Clean and brighten then reapply.
2. All of the AC stains can be cleaned and reapplied when time to redo.

Natural is the lightest tint and will fade the fastest. You will have to redo every 1-2 years when using natural. The semi-transparen t colors will last longer and the semi-solids a little longer than the semi-transparen ts.

As long as you remove all previous coatings, you can use the AC. All of the AC colors (including semi-solid) are penetrating stains as long as wood is prepped and the stain is not over applied. They can be cleaned and reapplied without the need for removal.
