Question - Staining a deck? - March 3, 2017, 09:13 AM

So I am planning to refresh the deck this year, going to use an 'oil' based stain. So far, have read good things about TWP, Ready Seal and Flood products.

Wanted to check with any of you guys, if you have any preferred stain?

Or any personal experience with any particular product suited for our area?

Thanks for any of your input and help.

Used to work in a paint dept. Standard rules for these is more time you put into prep the better the results will be. Anything off the shelf from a local store will do the trick as long as it is prepped right. When things go wrong its usually due to cutting corners on prep.

I re-did our porch about 3-years ago, and used the TWP oil-based stain. Highly recommended products, and so far everything looks great. Water still beads the second it hits the boards, and color held longer than I thought. Our porch is covered so it doesn't get as much degradation, but I'm very happy with TWP.

As said earlier, prep is critical. Make sure you get a good stripper and get all of the old stain off to ensure a good bond..

Thanks very much, yeah I am planning to prep it well. Since that's what I have found so far too, prep is the ONLY key for stain to last a bit.

Thank you.

Thank Flaus for your input, I'll look into TWP. So far, it seems to be a top notch product.

Your deck look amazing too!

Your wife's professional touches are evident in this picture.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.
