I have a redwood deck railing and stairs that were installed around the middle of August. I live in Utah. Should I prep and stain now before winter, or wait until next spring? Thanks
Can we purchase armrstong in canada ? And if so where if you now Thank you
I recently installed a new cedar deck on my house. I Live in northern IL and it is starting to get cold out. Would I be better off waiting until spring to use your products on my deck or try and squeeze it in before winter? Thank you
I want to stain teak furniture a dark, rich brown and need an oil-based hardwood stain. However, the sample photo of the Mahogany looks quite red. Is the mahogany stain more brown or more red?
I am in the process of fabricating a deck/pergola/patio and the wood will be fir. The trim on our home is green. Do any of your semi solid stains come in that color? What would you recommend for the deck that is in full sun 326 days of the year at 6,500 ft. altitude. Nobody has an exposed deck around here with an adequate finish.
We live in the foothills of the Sierra's with a Southern exposure. We have an ironwood deck, which of available color would be best. Really dark makes our deck hotter. We leaning towards the natural because of this but would like a longer period of time where we don't have to restain.
We are looking to sand and stain 2-year old (previously stained by another company) white cedar such that it ends up looking like your "cedar tone" sample above. Will it look too orange if we order the cedar stain? Is it best if we choose a different tint colour instead to achieve that same look on white cedar?
From what I read it appears your samples are shown on cedar. Do you have any samples on pressure treated pine? If so where can I look?
Looking to stain white cedar to look more like teak. Natural stain on the white cedar looks yellow. Any suggestions as to what other stain we should try?
Pressure Treated Pine decking, installed by carpenter with boards tight against each other. He says they will shrink and gap will show up in a couple of months. Its September in Ohio, and I'm not sure if I should stain it in two months. My questions are:
1. Should I wait the two months then stain?
2. If I wait until next spring, should I cover it with a tarp to lessen the water the boards will absorb?
I received the sample for semi-transparent cedar. It is still too opaque for me.
Is your transparent cedar tone really clear or does it contain some tint.
Most of your sample pictures seem to be of cedar wood. We have new PT pine. I'm wondering if the mahogany would look lighter than depicted in the sample on our wood? Does it have enough pigment to protect well against UV fading? Or is the color represented based on what it looks like on hardwoods such as Ipe? Your semi-transparents all look faded and washed out to me. Will the mahogany give rich color on PTP?
Does the Mahogany stain for IPE permit the natural color and grain of the IPE to show through. The color sample at the web-site appears so dark that the natural grain and color of the IPE may be concealed by the Mahogany.
I just used the sample I bought from you and the color is Woodland Brown. The color has way too much red in it but it does not appear that color on your website. I was disappointed in the color. I am looking for a darker brown...is the Oxford Brown darker and less "red". Thks
wife is split between drift wood and something over the top like the mahagony in semi trans. I lean more toward the semi solids. Any flicker or pinned photos out there on these stains used on regular old PT pine decks?
