    I purchased a 5 gallon of the Oxford Brown Semi-solid which looks great.  I have a newly installed 200sq' section of IPE hardwood and would like a color recommendation of the 3 hardwood stains that would somewhat blend if possible.  thanks

      You cannot blend that color and opacity with IPE wood. Black Walnut is more dark brown so probably your best option.

    Hi, I’m installing western red cedar T&G siding on a north facing wall covered by eaves, so it doesn’t get too much weather.  I want to keep the look of this cedar as natural as possible. Would u suggest the semi transparent cedar or the natural?  Does the natural mean it’s completely clear? I really don’t want it to get blotchy from the pigments. Also, should I oil the back side of the siding too?
    Thanks so much,
    A

    Hi! I live in Canada, is that a problem for shipping me two samples to try? My beautiful cedar deck is one year old, and the “weather-proofing” product I put on it is still letting a lot of grey come through. It looks several years old already!  The man who pressure washed my fence this spring recommended your products, but said they aren’t sold in Canada.

    I have a rough sawn cedar house that now has tranformation stain on it its been abut 7 years now and would like to know which is best to use on it the sun has beaten the one side the other 3 aren't as bad.  After pressure washing of course would the semi-transparent be the best I don't like solid stains.

      Yes, use any of the semi-transparent colors.

    We are laying eastern white cedar boards on our deck in Nova Scotia. About 800 sq/ft around a pool. Direct sunlight for 4-5 hours a day. Rest of the day is shaded by trees. We like the color of the cedar after it rains. What type (transparent, semi, color) to keep the same color under dry conditions. Thank you.

    Is the semi-transparent black walnut listed in the samples the same black walnut in the stain color picture card that is listed under hardwoods & softwoods?  I’m staining a mahogany deck and want to make sure I use the correct stain.

      Yes, there is only one Black Walnut stain.

    In 2019, I had a semi solid stain applied to the deck, PPG Russet.  Now the deck is peeling in certain areas.  Will I need to remove all the stain before I apply new stain or can I clean, sand in peeling areas, and apply new stain?

      Armstrong · 05/11/2022
      You will have to fully remove the old stain before switching brands.

    I recently bought a house with a deck that has not been maintained well and is currently grey. Should I use one of the semi solid stains or would I be able to use the Mahogany hardwood stain? I read somewhere that your semi solid stains were best for old wood but I love the Mahogany color.

    Covering about 1500 sf of new horizontal slat redwood fence, rough texture wood common con. 
    put in 3 weeks ago. Dry climate. Full sun. Clean fresh fence. 

    can i proceed with a semi-transparent stain without the clean and prep steps? 

    about how much product would I need for 1500 sf of coverage? 

    one coat sufficient? 

    on horizontal pickets do I roll on horizontally with the grain or is traditional up and down okay?

    Would you recommend a roller for the big parts/
    6 “ picket boards ? Brush for posts and finer detail?
    spongy fluffy roller or tighter fibers?

    acrylic or natural fibers on brushes rollers?

    thanks!

    Hi....we had a new deck built and completed 11/1/2021. Trex deck on horizontal including stair treads,  and pressure treated pine on all verticals, rails and bench. We have waited long enough for staining (in TN).  Do I need to pressure wash the verticals and bench with the RAD?  How do I know how much stain to order for the verticals and bench?

    Can you apply two coats of Armstrong Clark stain, one week apart, to get a darker color and to provide more protection? I stainedd two sample test boards, one with semi-transparent Cedar and one with semi-transparent Natural Oak, and the sample boards don't have the desired color. I'm thinking two coats would also provide more protection.

      Yes but make sure you do not overapply.

    I just read on your tip sheet that a newly installed fence should not be stained until 3-4 months.  Is the correct?

    We have a new fence and would like to match it with our gazebo.  Both are cedar and neither has been stained.  Which stain would you suggest to match the two and maintain it’s natural beauty.

    New construction home with wood fence that wraps around the property; fence has been there since July. Can I stain with "Hardwoods & Softwoods" colors? Also, what two colors can I combine to achieve the closest to an off black? I know I cannot use semi-solids because the wood is less than a year old.

    Do your stains require sealer on top?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Armstrong · 10/12/2021
      No and you cannot apply a sealer on top of a deck stain like the AC.

    My mahogany decking fence was beautiful but a significant portion has a long southern exposure year round and the initial Cabot's Australian Timber oil did not last 6 months. It is now streaked with gray, natural and black ash drips from rain. What can be done to weatherproof the fence and retain natural grain look with a neutral tone, slightly amber like it was originally?

    Hi there, trying to find a semitransparent or transparent stain with no yellow or orange hue, or very less of these colors? Prefer a lighter color. Any suggestions and help is truly appreciated!
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Armstrong · 09/02/2021
      All lighter colors will have a yellow hue. It is not possible to have a light brown with no yellow when you apply to exterior wood. You can do a medium brown like Rustic Brown or Natual Oak.

    We are building a new house and have rough cut cedar wrapped around some posts we want to stain. Do we need to do any prep on them prior to staining?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Armstrong · 07/29/2021
      No need if rough sawn cut as long as it clean and dry.

    Hello. Two questions if I may: 1/ What size (fl oz) are the samples? 2/ Does an open gallon container of the stain, if properly sealed, last or will it become unusable in 6 - 9 months? I have a couple of small pieces to stain that probably require only a quart of stain, although i intend to reapply in the future. Thanks

      1. 2-3 oz.2. Shelf life is about 12 months after being opened and properly resealed.
