Question Decking Stain??

Just pressure washed deck. Can anyone recommend a good product that will last for more than couple years. Should i just leave deck turn grey? Fed up with doing this every 2 or 3 yrs.

Good luck I'm in the same situation and it seems like anything I've researched only last a couple of years.

I used to work for a local paint manufacturer called Northern Paint and I bumped into one of their reps a few years ago after they were purchased by Cloverdale Paint and he was raving about a deck product they introduced called Sharkskin for decks. I can't vouch for it as someone who has used it, but they were excited about it's ability to hold up. Ultimately we're talking about a layer of paint a few thousands of an inch thick exposed to the elements 24/7 that we walk on several times a day which always made deck products the leading cause of performance complaints.

Behrs

I just power washed mine and did a lot of research and actually listened to a sales person as well. I ended up buying Behrs Oil Based Stain at Home Depot. Apparently no need for stripper in a few years and can just power wash and restain. With water based you have to strip and restain. I eliminated one step. $50 per gallon.

All then research I did and people I talked to said its a pipe dream to get more than 3 years out of a stain unless its covered or a vertical such as a fence. The only other advice is to make sure your deck has time to dry before applying the stain because it won't penetrate properly.

I've too had best luck with an oil penetrating stain.... Sikkens comes to mind... For a while, these oil stains were no longer available in Canada and I would order from USA and have it shipped to Pembina ND, before picking it up.... I do believe now, Windsor Plywood are again selling it... A great product but 3 years might be a stretch too.... I've learned the hard way, not to use a product that goes on like paint and skins over rather than penetrates... My deck is cedar, particularly a nuisance....... Composite deck next time, comfort vs pain-in-the-butt factor is just too close... TJ

I vote against composite. It shrinks and expands too much looks like crap imo and needs too much support so it don't droop.

In WPG just over 10 years ago I went Behr's top of the line solid color deck stain.
Will never do it again.
Needs attention every 3 or so years or it LOOKS terrible.
Once its on no going back.
If I was to do it over again I would go Thompson water seal only and hit it every year or so with a re coat. When Thompson clear starts to wear at least it dosen't look terrible.

I am just wondering if anyone has tried any of these products? TWP 200 Series, Armstrong Clark and Defy Extreme. I'm unsure what to do with our deck as well. https://www.deckstainhelp.com/best-d...in-for-canada/

My neighbor tried Bher Deckover. It was a chore to apply being thick like pudding. They did all the proper prep and after one winter it started flaking of in large sheets. Bher offered to pay for her to try another product but nothing gets great reviews so she said no she wants her money back. After several calls the company finally agreed to give her money back for any full or partial containers she had leftover with receipt.

I was going to go with composite as well and was talked out of it. Reasoning is unless you have a 1Mil house and put the most expensive composite down you are getting no better than wood. I was told not to waste my money and time.

had all the same problems with behr stain, garbage. Use flood brand from Dulux, you won't be disappointed and this won't become a bi-annual process

Is there a water seal type product which can be applied on top of the stain to help protect it and make it last longer?

My vote is an oil stain also. In fact I have some at cabin to coat my deck for the first time since built 8 years ago(currently original pressure treating)......I used a white oil stain on my fence in Winnipeg 17 years ago and no flakes as it's a stain. Still looks good.

I used Thompson's Water Seal and it works pretty good.

I used the Sharkskin product from Cloverdale on my 30x48 shop and on ~800 lin. feet of 3 rail fence and am happy with the results over the last 4 years. Would use again. I think it was ~$50/gal. and I saved 20% off with my CAA card. I think they have a BOGO sale every spring but don't quote me on that

...and as you likely know surface prep is key. Better a mediocre product and a good prep, than a good product and a mediocre prep.

that flood stain is an acrylic and I agree prep is everything, rent a floor sander if you got a big area, a pressure washer tends to leave impressions and you end up sanding it anyways, been my experience anyways, and also wait till at least to days of no rain has past before starting
