Best Stain for Garapa (TWP 1500 series?)
My contractor here in Austin TX is about to install our new decking material and we've chosen Garapa (we are redo'ing and expanding an existing deck). From the forum here it seems like a pretty good choice and much less expensive than Ipe.
If we want to maintain the original color as close as possible, what is the 'best' stain to use? It seems that TWP 1500 series is a good way to go, but what color? I realize 'best' is subjective but any insight would be appreciated. We would prefer the low VOC formulations even though you might still be able to get the TWP 100 series in TX. I'm not wed to that brand, either, just seemed to get good reviews here and y'all seem to know what you're talking about!
