Deck stain redo or leave it...

August 13, 2019

Hello, the painter we hired to stain our deck forgot that we wanted a two tone stain, and only used the black stain (Pittsburgh Paramount Exterior Stain Solid mystic black), instead of [mystic] white and black. I wanted it redone, but now I like it....thoughts?

    I say leave it. It looks good that way.

    I vote for keeping it also. It looks great with the color of your house.

    Thanks everyone. No redo is a win for us and the painter :)

    I'm currently obsessed with black painted or stained wood in the landscape so I call it a win!


    Your deck looks clean, fresh and modern.

    Sometimes painters "forget" on purpose. They either want to avoid the work involved, or they know it won't look as good as you think. He blessed you!

    Leave it- looks nice with your white furniture
