    Jose, Check out Sansin's color chart for the stains. from there you can work with the supplier to tweak the stain color to create the effect you're looking for.

    Their product is much more durable than many of the other products I've used in the past. I think you'll be happy with the possibilities and the results.

    If I have completely treated wood (pine) do I need to stain/oil the deck? Also how long does this particular stain I the deck in the picture last for?

    was it pressure treated? If so how long before i can seal.

  • Robert Kiefer

    We have found that the Duck Back did not last very long. We are now using Benjamin Moore Arborcoat Natural oil finish. Finishes are not what they used to be.

    The wood is ipe. I think it is the most durable deck product. I have 30 year old projects that are still perfect. I have never had to replace an ipe deck. I can't say that about any other product. Don't worry about the winters. The summer sunlight is any decks worst enemy. Winter is like putting produce in the fridge. It helps it to last longer.

    Good luck

    Pourriez vous nous parler de la teinture (compagnie, couleur etc)? J'aime beaucoup la couleur, je la chercher depuis plusieurs années pour mon patio de cèdre.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. The top rail is actually Meranti. We use 2 layers of 1 x 12 glued together with marine epoxy and cut to the radius.

  • Robert Kiefer

    The bench is another process. That bench is laminated redwood. In other words we take 2x3 clear redwood and rip it into thin layers. It is then glued together and bent to a form.

    The bench legs just rest on the deck surface. A toe screw into the surface concealed with a wood plug holds the bench in place. The ends are also screwed to the planters from underneath.

    Hi there, thanks for your interest! We've used Cuprinol's oil based preservatives for tropical wood. Another good choice would be Benjamin Moore's ArborCoat oil-based "Natural" finish. Application every few years...

    Chaises belong to the client. I don't know the manufacturer

    It says "ipe" in the description, a fairly expensive but sustainable hardwood.

                This elegant ipe deck by Decks by Kiefer faces terraced gardens and a pool. We can imagine some men who might like to relax here in the chaise longues and take in the view, perhaps sipping a glass of something cool or a mug of something warm.Show us: Is the place you feel most yourself at home a solitary, restful space? Or is it in the midst of all the action?
