For stain, I want the stain remover look
I removed the previous stain from my deck. While doing so, the thick stain remover absorbed into the wood and gave it a deep, rich, brownish-honey appearance...while wet. That's the color I want for my deck. I've tried some other deck oils, and all of them seem too light, or don't absorb. They seem to stay at the surface.
However, I don't know if too much oil into the wood will later cause it to rot or cause future problems. I live in a very wet climate for most of the year.
Any ideas of how to get the color? Or any warnings to me?
