    That would not brown it enough. You would want to add a little Dark Oak into the Cedartone. You can clean and apply it on top next Spring.

    I build a cedar deck last summer and stained it a couple weeks ago with the cedartone 100 series stain. The color is ok, but I wish it was a little less orange. I live in MN so I anticipate having to restain again next year anyway. Do you have any advice on what I can do to make it a little more brown instead of orange. Can I mix a gallon of cedar with pecan? If that is an option, can I just brush it over the top of what I already have or do you suggest stripping the old off first? Thanks.

    Tim, I would use the 100 for MN. Make sure all of the Behr has been removed.

    Hi,

    I recently constructed a redwood deck using new materials, so the wood is about a month old, on average, and is in good condition. I'm wondering what your suggestion would be regarding the wait period before applying stain. Can i stain now, or should i use the deck all summer and stain in the fall? Also, i'm looking for maximum protection without too much color. Shopping around, i've been eye-balling transparent stains. Based on your available palette, would my best bet be to go with the cedar or the honey, or should i just stick with the redwood?

    Thank you

    i have a brand new deck with treated decking and post, but with cedar hand rails with black blausters. Would you recommend rustic or cedartone in order to match up the treated decking with the cedar rails? How long to i need to want before staining the new deck?

    Janice, Rustic is a red color with a hint of brown but definitely more on the red side. There is not a way to lighten the color.

    Hello,
    We are about 1/2 through with staining our new deck. We treated it prior to staining with your cleaner and brightener. We chose Rustic (second choice was Pecan) but it is way too red for my taste. It almost looks like the Redwood sample we painted. My husband says we just have to wait for it to fade in a few years and redo at that time. I currently hate it. Short of stripping the new finish, do you have any suggestions for toning down the red? To me it looks almost orange especially when the sun shines on it. Our deck is cedar.

    Chris, I would get 8-9 gallons for the 2 coats wet on wet. You should remove the Olympic first though with a stain stripper and wood brightener so the TWP can properly penetrate. Typically lasts about 2 years.

    Pat, clear offers no uv protection from graying. There must be a tint for that. Please read this about new decking:

    Sir/Ms; I am using Ponderosa Pine boards as decking for a roofed porch; north facing side of house. I want a clear finish so natural wood shows. Does TWP 100 do that? If so, how do I order it online and what is price for one gallon? Thx, pat

    Would the 1500 series stain colors be richer looking than 100 series for my deck in Minnesota?
