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?
I am looking for a stain for a pergola that I want to build. I plan on building it out of rough sawn douglas fir. 1) Can I apply the stain right away without waiting for it to weather? Is there any prep required? I want to do everything while its on the ground before constructing it. 2) Is there a larger picture of the rustic brown applied to a deck, etc. that I can view. 3) Can Armstrong Clark stains be shipped to Huntington Beach, CA?
Do you ship samples to Canada? If yes, how long would it take and at what cost?
Just recently built a deck using micropro sienna pressure treated wood. I don't want the colour to change but want to protect it! What transparent product would work best with this wood!
My samples have arrived and I want to apply them at the correct rate. What area do they cover?
I would like to order about 6 Gallons of stain + wood brightener. I live in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. How long will it take for the stain to be delivered after I place my order?
Hi there. I tested the rustic brown on pt boards (one new from store, one about a month or so old). The stain was dramatically darker on the older board. Since I am told to wait a few months before staining a new deck should I expect the rustic brown to be very dark? It looked like oxford brown when compared to your site colors, in your experience is this normal for rustic brown? I love the color on the new boards (a medium, warm brown). Thank you.
