Wrong stain colour
I just had my deck stained with a semi-solid water based stain. We hired someone to do the work. He did a great job, but the stain is the wrong colour. We wanted a taupey grey and instead got a silvery (almost blue) grey. Does not match with the rest of my home. It's not the contractor's fault as we picked out the colour.
My question is can we apply new stain on top without doing the prep work again? Or should I just learn to live with the colour for the next few years.
