Matching new boards with older finish deck boards
I needed to replace some of my 5/4 treated deck boards. The new boards are naturally much lighter in color than the existing boards. I have power washed the deck and ready to stain and seal. Is there any way I can do this and have the colors match? I don't want to stain a dark color. More on the lines of a lighter natural color.
Re: Matching new boards with older finish deck boards
Nearly impossible without staining. Another option is to let the new lumber to weather .
The new lumber comes from a different source and the old lumber is weathered - that's why they don't match.
