Brand new PT deck I built myself. After much agonizing, I went with
Wolmans Durastain semi (red cedar) and now wish I had not. Stuff is so
thick and viscous, came out almost solid and I don't like the color at
all. Wolmans says strip it or change color to different Durastain, but
can't recommend using any other product because of adhesion.
Wolmans says stripping now is better than waiting. I have read horror
stories about stripping these acrylic type stains. If I put on another
(darker) Durastain, and I hate that too, I may never get it off. But
is by far the easiest course, if I can live with the new color.
I just applied yesterday, and it poured rain about 16 hours later.
Also I only did deck and stairs, no rails or lattice etc, thank Jah.
Wish now I had gone with the oil toner.
Please help. Advise and experiance about stripping Durastain (days
My labor of love, which was perfect, is now driving me nuts.
