Is there a way to stain match old and new wood?
Rob32328534 on Jun 29, 2018Your best bet would be to get some sample stain chips and compare across all brands or get a good bright photo and take it to your store. Just have them mix a small container if possible to see if it matches. New stain will always be a little different due to weathering on the older stain.Helpful Reply

Peggy Riggles on Jun 29, 2018Try pressure washing the old wood. It should get close to the original color.Helpful Reply
Sharon on Jun 29, 2018I too would power wash the deck and use some wood bleach to get the old boards up light enough to get both to stain equally.Helpful Reply
