Solid Stain for cedar doors

Looking for a solid off-white stain for my cedar doors that provides the best coverage. My house is off-white stucco and I do not want the HOA required cedar doors to stand out like a sore thumb. Can someone recommend a brand and color?

Solid Stain for cedar doors

If your door requires a solid stain, I can recommend the Sikkens, Benjamin Moore, and Cabot, solid stains
I don't know if Sherwin Williams has one, but if they do I'd trust it also

Solid Stain for cedar doors

I'd put Sikkens Rubbol DEK on it. This product though designed for decks will work fine on a door and give it a satin finish instead of the flat that most solid stains come in. You could also use the Rubbol Siding Finish for satin appearance if you don't mind a waterborne product.
