    Does the Cedar Semi-Trans show wood grain?

    Hi, I'm looking to stain a freshly built 360 sq ft western red cedar deck a rich red brown colour. Which stain would you recommend and how much would I need? Thanks

    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?

    I have an older (9 years) pressure treated deck. It previously had Behr semi-transparent stain. I used the Behr stain remover which did not work very well, so I then power washed and sanded the deck to remove the remaining stain. I will then use a deck cleaner. Is this sufficient prep for the AC stains?
    Do you ship to Alaska without outrageous shipping charges? Do you know how your redwood color compares to Behr's?

    12 year old pine pressure treated deck recently sanded clean. We will have white rails and want Redwood for the floor. Is the Redwood semi-solid?

    Thank you in advance.

    The Sequoia color is a semi-solid. Not the Sierra Redwood or the Redwood Tone.

    New cedar deck, 75% covered. I want to keep the natural look as much as possible while providing the most protection, what color do you recommend?

    I know letting the deck weather some is best but living in ND there aren't too many warm weather months so we want to do it ASAP so we can enjoy the deck. If we clean and brighten properly we should be okay???

    Thank you.

    You have to wait 3 months after install then clean and brighten for the prep. Only one coat is needed. Look at the Amber Tint.

    My IPE flooring is in a covered screen porch. The color is a natural looking dark red (mahogany like) color. I assume your mahogany stain is the correct product and color choice. It is a transparent stain and not a solid color, correct? Also, flooring is 320 sqft so 2 gallons needed (not first coating)? Thank you for your help.

    It is a semi-trans in color. One maybe two gallons. If you have a previous coating, it will need to be removed before applying the AC.

    Hello,

    I am trying to order samples of your Hardwood Deck Stain, but it seems on the sample ordering page these are all the standard stains. Is there a way for me order the hardwood versions?

    There is only one version of the Amber and Mahogany, not two different versions.

    The products indicate they are for exotic hardwoods (yet there are only two products). I have new kiln-dried red and white oak outdoor picnic table and need a coating. Will this product work for oak? Also, is there a person to speak with at the factory?

    Any of the colors will work on your wood type. You can call us during business hours at the number above.

    Hi I have a pressure treated pine deck that was built last summer. We are looking to put some stain on it this spring now that it has weathered for several months. It is in full sun most of the day and we are located in northern Ohio. We are interested in the red wood toner color is it sufficient for our climate or would you recommend a semi transparent?

    A semi-transparent will last longer from UV so that would be better and last longer.

    We are finishing a cedar screened in porch in Atlanta,GA. Rough cedar for vertical posts and smooth cedar on the floor and sides.

    Should we stain now? or wait till spring? What is the proper temp. range to stain.

    should we sand the floors prior to staining?

    Do we need to let smooth cedar age before staining? what about rough cedar?

    New wood should season outside after building for at least a few months so best to wait until Spring. For the prep you should use the Restore A Deck Kit and alight pressure washing or scrubbing.

    I have a redwood deck railing and stairs that were installed around the middle of August. I live in Utah. Should I prep and stain now before winter, or wait until next spring? Thanks

    Sorry we missed your question. Best to wait until
    Spring for this.

    Hi,

    I recently installed a new cedar deck on my house. I Live in northern IL and it is starting to get cold out. Would I be better off waiting until spring to use your products on my deck or try and squeeze it in before winter? Thank you

    Wait until Spring and clean and brighten for the prep.

    I want to stain teak furniture a dark, rich brown and need an oil-based hardwood stain. However, the sample photo of the Mahogany looks quite red. Is the mahogany stain more brown or more red?

    More red then brown
