    Cathy, I would suggest waiting until Spring. Best to use the Restore A Deck Kit for the prep. Typically you wait 2 days after prep before staining.

    Thanks!

    Hi Jake, We stained our deck last year in September with Cedar Semi stain and it still looks great, however, we notice it is starting to fade a bit. We thought we could get by another winter but now are wondering if we should reapply this fall or wait until Spring?
    trying to avoid having to sand again. For prep what should we use? is scrubbing with soap and water enough? Also how many days of dry weather before the deck is dry enough to restain? Thanks Jake! AmClark is the best product we've ever used.

    You can but it will not look anything like the picture as the sample is on IPE wood. Highly suggest a sample to test.

    Can I put mahogany on a redwood deck? Or is it just for IPE woods?

    Peggy,

    1. Woodland Brown, Mountain Cedar, Oxford, Sequoia.
    2. No solid stains
    3. You should remove the Cabot first.
    4. Yes.

    Hi, About to stain my house in Lake Tahoe and have a few questions. 1) Semi-solid comes in what colors? Mahogany, for example, doesn't show at all in my Armstrong brochure. 3) Any solid stains? 3) I'll apply Armstrong semi-solid over 5 year old Cabot semi-solid that's in pretty good condition. Brochure says it will last 2 to 4 years - correct? Thanks.

    Hard to say. Best to get the samples to test. You can also mix the colors together to achieve a balance.

    On a redwood deck, trying to decide on either sequoia or woodland brown. i want sequoia but I am worried it will have too much red in it and the deck will look too red because of the redwood. Would woodland brown on redwood give us the right balance between red and brown? Advice?

    Carol Marciniszyn:
    The color you call "Natural," is it a stain or is it clear?

    The Natural is very lightly pigmented.

    I would wait and do a light coat next Spring after a light cleaning.

    We recently stained our new 11 month old cedar deck with Armstrong Clark semi-transparent stain. The deck weathered horribly due to our Michigan winter and rainy spring/summer. We sanded the deck by hand multiple times and applied one coat of the semi-transparent stain. Is one coat of stain sufficient or will it need another coat? If it should have another coat, will we be able to put a second coat of stain on in May or June 2014 with only having to clean the deck?

    Mary Jo, you should be fine with that. Opened containers will go bad within a year or less. Unopened will last many years.

    Sequoia is a little redder than the Woodland Brown.

    What is the color difference between these two colors? They look identical on the internet. I have a redwood deck and may combine the sierra redwood with one of them for a less brown look.

    Thanks

    We are going to use the Sequoia semi-solid, but are forced to do a limited section which needs to be done before the winter, then the remainder in the spring/summer. Thinking to buy 1 gallon now, 5 gallon later. Any reason not to do it this way? Color not being replaced, changed, etc.? (In our case, the slight color difference the timing will create is ok)
    Also, what is shelf life of unopened can? opened can? Thanks.

    Are there any dealers in the vicinity of Kennett Square, PA, 19348?

    Janie, best to order sample direct form the site as there are not any dealers in your area. I believe it is semi-cedar in the picture with the mountains.

    We live in central Alabama and just moved into a brand new house in May. We have a treated pine deck that needs to be cleaned and stained, wanted to use the RAD and the Armstrong Clark stain was recommended for the new wood. We want the grain of the wood to show so maybe semi-transparent. Our house is a brown brick with dark brown trim. We were thinking cedar but don't want it to be too yellow and want a little reddish color in it. The rustic brown looks too brown and the redwood too red. What would you recommend? What's the color of the deck overlooking the mountains in your photos? Or the house right directly below that one. The pier doesn't look bad either but it looks too yellowish.
    Can I order directly from you the sample and the RAD? Is there anyone in Alabama that sells these products? How long does delivery take as I think I would like to do it in the next couple of weeks.

    Hello,

    What color of stain was used on this site's picture of the picnic table and on the deck that was built around the tree (at top of picture)...this picture was taken looking down at the deck?

    Woodland Brown is reddish/brown. It does have a good amount of red in it.

    We ordered a few samples and liked the saturation of color with Sequoia, but thought it was too red for our taste. Is woodland brown a similar saturation without the red? I also see Oxford brown, but not sure I want something that deep.
    I would order more samples, but I cleaned and brightened the deck today, and would like to stain as soon as possible.
    Thanks!

    Your stains are described as transparent, semi-transparent, semi-solid, or none (Amber and Mahogany). Can you explain what these terms mean, and how they affect the decision of what stain to use? (or point me to where on the web site that they are described!).
