2 tone advice
I have a 7 year old deck that i stained a few times with Armstrong Clark Semi-Transparent Rustic Brown.
I am interested in a two-tone approach making the railings / verticals white. My question is do i use a solid-deck stain in white or paint? Also, what is the best brand that will give me a solid white color (not off-white color). I plan to keep the floor and the hand rail the same semi-transparent Rustic brown.
Also, if staining / painting the verticals, do i have to power wash the current AC - semi transparent stain off before putting on new product?
Thank you for your help!
Thanks for your quick response... i see Restore-A-Deck also makes a white that looks good in your review section. I may try that.
Two more questions...
1) I have a few cracks in some of the railings...should i fill them before using the solid stain? if so, what can I fill them with?
2) When applying the solid stain do I use a brush or roller? I want it to appear as solid as possible - not sure if brush application leaves marks.
