Can you use Olympic oil based stain on a sealed deck over 2 years ago?

We'd recommend prepping the area first and making sure the stain can be absorbed into the surface. This may require some sanding or removal of any existing stains or sealers. Give us a call at 1-800-426-6306 if you have any questions.

What can you use on rough cedar after sanding to make it smoother to touch?

Answer

Hi there. This does depend on the condition of the substrate. If after sanding, the wood is in stable condition, this should seal the surface and provide a smooth finish. Please give us a call if you have any questions at 1-800-426-6306

I purchased the semi solid Rustic Cedar color stain. The stain is quite darker than the image shows online. The stain also has a shiny finish. As far as how long the stain will last I don’t know as I stained the deck a month ago.
