Our new home has fir beams by the front porch and back patio and pine T&G under the eaves. We chose Sikkens Log & Siding in Dark Oak but after 2 coats it looks lighter than expected. We’d like a darker stain with less of the red undertones. Will adding 1 or 2 more coats help achieve this? We also looked at preferred colors in SW Woodscapes but were told Sikkens would be less maintenance. Any suggestions on what we can do now?

Experiment putting another coat of something darker (Teak?) in the Sikkens. You will have the same maintenance with the Sikkens as the S.W. semi-transparent, about every 3 or 4 years. Do not neglect this part or it can get very costly to get back in shape.
