We are very impressed with how well our fencing and gates now look! I asked for a string and handle to be put on the doors of the gates and they did it with no problem. The stain seemed a little orange to me at first but I am told it will lighten up. I am just glad to have the wood look thoroughly treated and protected by such a quality stain. It is one of the more longer lasting, so the color bothered me less knowing this!
