I have a new redwood deck that is 3 1/2 months old and per your recommendations should be ready to be prepped/stained. I would like the natural red/orange color of the wood to be preserved. Would the Natural Tone stain be best to preserve the natural color? Does the Cedar Tone or Redwood Tone stains artificially color the wood?
All the colors will enhance the grain of the wood including the Natural Tone. They do not "artificially" color the wood, but enhance based on the color you choose.
