Right - we just decided to go ahead and use the deck, but are trying to be careful when moving things around to prevent blatantly scratching it. It seems to be holding up ok, so that's the most...

Thanks for the insight. I was just surprised how easily it lost pigment, as I donít recall this happening with the part of one deck we applied this same brand to last year. I can stop obsessively...

Well a full day of sun and most of the tackiness is gone. However, it still produces the white "sanding-like" effect when rubbed. I tried mineral spirits on a small section of the steps and it...

HI all - we stained our decks a couple days ago and as of this morning most surfaces are still very slightly tacky. Nothing is sticking to the surfaces and you can walk on them ok, but if you stand...

Applying additional solid stain after 1 year

Hi all - I replaced some deck boards last year and at the same time sanded and stained (solid acrylic) the usable old deck boards on our pool deck. I'd like to stain the replaced boards this spring...
