Having a color problem

I bought the sample of the american chestnut applied it to 2 different test boards color was perfect. Went an bought 4 gallons and color is completly different. The sample seems to be more of a lighter transperent and the gallon seems to be more of a solid. Asked 3 employees no one can tell me whats going on. The brochure has 2 different types of american chestnut semi solid tss-50 amd semi transperent tst-50 .but when you look it up on home depot website they only show one. The sample can seems to be the semi transperent an the gallon seems to be the semi solid. I need to get my deck stain for a party next week an i dont know what to do.

I'm thinking of applying this product on new (dried out 3 months) pressure treated deck on Nantucket Island MA. Would transparent for 1st time use be correct ? (More penetration?) Also, how many coats would be required? I do plan to use deck cleaner first.
Asked by: Richard
Richard, ensure the wood had dried out or the stain will not penetrate. As for the transparency that is a personal choice. Do you want the wood grain to show through, then go with the transparent, if you want more color and it to show less grain choose semi-solid. The wonderful aspect of this product is it only requires ONE coat. Obviously, you will have spots that need to be touched up. Good luck!

Can this be applied over an existing old polyurethane finish? Gate is raw pine boards with a sloppy coat of polyurethane. Want to stain OVER the old finish.
Asked by: jw
It would be best to strip that finish off before application.

Natural Semi-Transparent/Semi-Solid American Chestnut Exterior Stain Low VOC is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stain Experiment I was very interested to see how this would work, as I have not really worked with stain before. When I opened the first can, I thought it looked much darker than the color I selected. I wasn't too worried, since stain is different from paint and goes on much thinner. My First Project was a fence between the houses, that was unfinished wood on my side. The stain went on easy, and the rougher surface soaked it right up. I was right, the color applied much lighter than it looked in the can, andI was very happy how it looked on the wood. Applying onto the bare wood, i used 3-4 coats to get a nice finish. That seems alot, but the stain covers a large area, and applies fast. I think the finished fence looks great. The wood has ab "alive" look to it, and the natural grain and color shows through in just the right balance to the stain tint. I took a few pics of the fence, one shows well the old and new look as I worked. MY Second Project was interior. This was exterior stain, but I was sent four gallons, so I was looking around for more places to try! I decided on a wood closet. it had a varnish finish, but was really old, and lots of scratches, dents, and even thumbtack holes. I had to be careful applying stain, since on this surface it didn't soak in much, and I had to avoid runs and splotches. I got better as I went. I had no idea how this would work, but the change was amazing. The wood has a like new gloss, and a richer color. Its darker, but looks good. The stain also took out out the scratches and chips, covering them to match. I was like, "wow." The thumbtack holes filled in some, but are way less noticeable. I might try this on other old doors inside too. I took a pic with one door done and one not as I worked. I used brushes on both projects. Clean-up was very easy, just soap and water to rinse out my brushes. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great shine and consistent color Luckily we had a batch of warmer weather to apply it to the front of our cedar home. It went on consistently but was a little thin so that it dripped a bit onto cement. It was easy to apply and seemed color consistent. It dried in one day to apply to second coat. We were very happy with the shiny final coat. I really liked the low odor that was a pleasure to work with all day. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WORKS WELL!! I was provided this product to use it on a project and to give my honest review of it.I used it on a cedar fence that was at least 12 years old and hadn't seen any upkeep for at least 8 years so the stain/sealer on it was shot and it was weather worn very badly. I first pressure washed the fence to clean and lighten the wood. I tried to spray the stain on but due to the roughness of the wood and other factors it just wasn't working to my satisfaction. The stain is very thin so when spraying vertical rough textured wood it tends to drip so you have to constantly back brush it.....very time consuming. So on to the best way to apply for me, the old hand brushing method. The stain goes on very well with a brush When first applying it I was worried that it was too red or orange, not too worry when dry it darken out beautifully. It covers well and looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use Wonderful Reaults Upon opening the can I was excited to use this stain and sealant. The color was really pretty and the odor was more of a paint than that of a strong stain that I am used to. The stain was very easy to apply- I used a regular paint brush and it was not messy and there were no visible lines. It was a very easy product to use. The project went fast and I was so happy with the results. Cannot wait to find something else to use this stain on. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Went on smooth and good looking. I've never used PPG wood stains, or even knew they made them, but I have an uncle that swears by their paint so I figured I give it a try. I like to change the color of my deck every so often so it wouldn't be a big deal if I didn't like it or it didn't go on very well. I used a pressure washer in on the deck and a sander on the railings to see if there was much of a difference. There wasn't. It went on pretty smooth and didn't bubble up like I saw in another brand. Followed the directions like they asked and the color was pretty close to what's on the bucket but I'm a bit color blind so I could be wrong. I like that they had a 3 gallon bucket because I wanted to do more than just my deck and do my fence as well. I haven't done my fence yet but my deck came out really nice. I just put it on over the weekend so I'm not sure how well it will hold up yet but their other products work well so I'm not sure why this wouldn't.
