Help: Cutek Exteme on Sienna Brown PT
After reading that Cutek is the best, we purchased Cutek Extreme and a few cans of Colourtone to possibly mix in.
The deck finishers sanded the surfaces: horiztonal (belt sander) and vertical (by hand) as we had replaced a few boards that were severely cracked even after one year. This way we were pretty certain the surface would be even, moisture meter tested each board as ready to go.
After testing samples with colourtone and without on a few boards, we settled on the CLEAR.
Here is a picture after about 18 hours of the ONE coat of CLEAR Cutek Extreme applied with a deck brush:
I am concerned by the splotchy, blotchy finish.
1. Do we apply the second coat as CLEAR or do we add a COLOURTONE to help even out the tone/finish?
2. Should he use the lambswool brush I had purchased instead?
I have called every deck store I can find that sells this product to get some guidance, but no such luck.
Home Hardware says the PT material is not allowing the oil to penetrate. That is inconsistent with the Cutek website that says re: being able to apply right away. I don't this this person knew what he was talking about.
Anyway, if someone can help us make a decision to allow us to finish this project today, that would be stellar.
Thank you in advance,
