Perserva Wood deck stain on knotty western red cedar
I cleaned my deck with 30 second and followed with brightener with oxcylic acid...after waiting several days to dry, I applied Perserva Wood with pad and brushed in cracks...wiped up excess after 15 minutes. Problem is...I now have knots that did not take stain as well as wood and it looks worn already. Any fixes?
The knots are not going to stain like the rest, it just doesn't.They are much harder than the rest of the board. You can try to carefully put more stain over just the knots and let it stay on it might help.
Thanks, I will give it a try and apply in the morning and let it stay on a little longer than 15mins before wiping off...I guess as long as the water repels and I don't have to strip it that is what counts...wood penetrant sounds much easier....and I was looking for the least amount of upkeep.
