    had a deck and pergola of redwood built last year. It was sealed with Thompson. With all the rain we had in N.califonia wood turned dark. Pressure washed it with wood cleaner. which is best to seal and stain with uv protection? Does REDWOOD TONE have uv protection?

    Redwood tone has UV protection. For even more protection from UV, use the Sierra Redwood.

    Hi, I wanted to make sure that the oxford brown stain is appropriate for an IPE deck. Does it need a sealer after the stain?

    The Oxford Brown is not for IPE. Use the Amber, Mahogany, or Black Walnut.

    You cannot apply a sealer over a deck stain nor is there a need. The AC is a sealer as well.

    Hi, can I mix two different colors together to make a new color? I need a warmer (more purple) gray than Driftwood and thought about mixing a gallon of Driftwood with a gallon of Sierra Redwood or Mahogany...

    You can intermix the AC colors.Try samples to test first.

    We have cedar siding on our house that is stained with a natural cedar tone semi transparent stain - not yours -but is close in color to your cedar semi. Looking for a semi transparent stain color for our adjacent pt decks that we are cleaning and staining. Looking for a color that will go with cedar semi but not be the same.

    Try Rustic Brown or Natural Oak.

    I'm a little confused about whether to use your 1 part bleach to 3 parts water formula or the RAD cleaner. After reading some of the questions the readers have asked, I'm inclined to do the RAD cleaner and skip the bleach method. Is this correct analogy?

    The RAD prep is better for the wood and is a better prep overall.

    I am planning a porch with a sapele deck, treads and railings. I would like to leave it natural color. Which of your products do you recommend?

    All of the AC colors are tinted and will enhance the grain based on the color you would like. The Natural is the lightest tint and is similar to a wet look.

    The BM Arbocoat does not remove well with a stain stripper so sanding is most likel needed. After the sanding, continue the prep with the Restore A Deck Kit. This should do it for the prep.[/quote]

    Thank you for the response.

    I have heard sanding is almost required with the BM stuff. So process should go sand, cleaner, brightener, AC stain....correct?

    thanks again[/quote]
    That is correct![/quote]

    Thanks for the quick responses...one last question though.

    I have read belt sanding along the grain of the wood is best to sand the cedar deck...would you go to an 80 grit paper to really get this old BM stain out? Thanks again!

    60 to 80 grit.

    Hello, i'd like to get a sample of your black walnut. A customer wants a dark brown stain on his ipe deck to match what he had on it before. I don't know what it was, but haven't found any other dark brown deck stain for ipe beside yours. I could not find a black walnut for hardwoods in the samples. There was only a semi transparent black walnut available. Thank you,

    It is the same. There is only one version of Black Walnut. It is color designed for hardwoods but can be sued on all wood types as well.

    Hi…

    I have a 2 year old cedar deck that I stained after a few months with Benjamin Moore Arborcoat semi-transparent stain…it is junk and started to peel after the first winter. I waited another winter to get as much of it off as possible “naturally”, but need to do the staining again this year.

    I have heard odd things about AC and will try the “Cedar” semi-transparent, or Amber (will get some samples though).

    I live in Vancouver, BC so we get a fair amount of rain, and possible snow.

    My question is what is recommended approach to get this horrible BM product off the deck, and prep it so I can stain with the AC product this season? I have a big flat (2x6”) cedar deck with a one step (along the entire edge) going down to the lawn. No railings to worry about.

    Many thanks!

    I have a new cedar deck that i put in last year. I want to stain it with something that will not peel like water base stuff does. It is around an above ground pool so the deck gets used alot and it is in direct sun. Which product do you recommend?

    The AC stains are all penetrating oil based stains that do not peel. Any color that you like will work. Prep with the Restore A Deck Kit first.

    I requested a sample of the Oxford Brown several weeks ago but have not received it. Now I would like to also receive a sample of Natural as the guy doing my deck think Oxford Brown may be too dark and he would need to lighten it up by blending in some natural color.

    We do not have a sample order from you. Please add to cart the colors that you would like.

    Thanks

    Amy:
    I ordered a sample of the woodland brown and the rustic brown. I do not like the look of semi-transparents and the woodland brown came out looking way too orangish. I am looking for something more reddish in a semi-solid. Would you recommend trying a sample of the Mountain Cedar or the Sequoia if I am looking for a brown with reddish tones?

    Thanks.

    Sequoia would be closest to what you are looking for.
