We will reply to your comment shortly· 04/12/2013I have a new picture frame style deck. I want to stain the frame in a dark color and the interior planks in a lighter color. I was leaning toward the Mahogany and Amber colors, but also wanted to preserve the wood grain by using a semi-transparent stain. Suggestions?

Coverage for rough wood is more like 150-200 per gallon.
It can be sprayed but you would need to back brush drips.
Month should be okay for drying.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 03/21/2013I just installed a cedar privacy fence. Some of the wood is still wet (a few drops of water from the screws I put in while mounting the pickets). My wife would like the fence stained and wants to stay as close to the natural cedar color as possible. She also wants to avoid graying. Would the Cedar Semi or Cedar Tone be better? How much longer would the Cedar Semi last and how much better the UV protection (due to the pigmentation)? How much coverage could I expect- 200 - 250 square feet/gallon? Can I use a Wagner power sprayer (I know a brush is preferred but it's a big fence)? I live in Austin, TX so it'll get a lot of sun, not a lot of water (some sprinkler system blowover). The cedar pickets are rough cut so they should absorb stain well now but I'd like them to dry a bit- is a month about the right time to wait? Please advise- thank you.

We will reply to your comment shortly· 03/18/2013The deck of our new house was stained a red tinted brown colr but it was uneven and some parts were never stained. We are looking to have it power washed and re-stained with a darker brown to cover all of the deck and cover the existing stain. I need a darker color and would be interested in something almost espresso. Any suggestions?
We will reply to your comment shortly· 02/13/2013The Mahogany color is a very nice red color with a hint of brown. It would look very nice.
