Problems with Woodrich treated ipe decks-- pics included
2 new decks installed spring 2011. Cleaned with Woodrich Wood Cleaner and Mild Stripper, then with Woodrich Wood Brightener and Neutralizer, then 1 coat of Woodrich amaretto exotic hardwood wiping stain. Looked good but soon after the parts exposed to rain and sun looked gray. See pics -- first 5 or so-- on link. So we decided to recoat. We did all 3 steps on 1 deck and it looks terrible. see the last 3 or 4 pics. Blotchy. didn't soak in everywhere. What's up??
Hoping this link works. Thanks.
