Choosing a Stain or Sealer for Your Deck

Deck stains and sealers should repel water, resist mildew, and prevent fading in high-traffic areas. Water-based and oil-based sealers and stains exist. Water-based finishes stay longer than oil-based ones, although oil-based ones have longer-lasting color. In order of pigment, there are four main deck staining sealants and stains. More pigment protects wood but hides grain and texture.

Clear water repellent protects against mildew, wetness, and UV rays. Clear or natural-look coatings provide little UV protection, so the wood will gray within months. Performance lasts 6 months–2 years.

Toner, or tinted water repellent, is like clear sealant but colored. This reduces solar damage and wood graying. Even if the wood has faded, the color can restore it.

Semi-transparent stains add pigment for a muted hue while revealing the wood’s grain and structure. They protect against water and sun damage for 3–4 years.

Solid stain protects wood best since it has the most pigment or color. It covers the wood grain and just shows minor texture. Weathered wood is stained with solid colors to hide damage. This category has more color options, so choose complementing colors for different wood sections. Depending on sun exposure and foot traffic, solid stain lasts 5 years or more.

Your deck painting professionals

Remember that wood color affects stain choice. Apply a new stain that matches or is darker than the existing one. The old coating must be worn or removed to allow the new coating to permeate the wood. To confirm color and look, test the stain on a tiny, inconspicuous area.

Redwood and cedar tannins induce surface bleeding. To hide tannin, use a dark stain or a tannin-removing wood cleaning. To retain freshness, recoat every 2–3 years.
