I love the look of the deck on your home page (which I understand is Mahagony on IPE). My deck is 9 year old PTP and was sanded to remove old stain. Can you tell me how the Mahagony would look compared to how it looks on your home page deck? I'm also considering the Redwood and Sierra Redwood. I'm looking for a deep, rich color. Because I live in Alaska and shipping is expensive, I don't want to order mulitple samples, so any advice you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
Mahogany color on PTP will look red in color. It will not look anywhere like the picture that is on IPE. You cannot achieve the look of the IPE with PTP. what you can do is mix colors. Maybe get Rustic Brown and Mahogany and mix the two?
