Faron-SRD Deck stain Q
Hi Faron, I came across your many posts recommending the Sikkens SRD deck stain-I am going to try that on our deck this weekend. I have a question though-is the Cetol SRD Semi Transparent and Translucent the same formulation? I couldn't find the Semi-transparent at our local HD. The Sikkens website says they are both non film forming but will the translucent penetrate instead of sitting on the surface? I am not sure I understand what the difference is other than the opacity-I am ok with it being somewhat opaque as the wood is very old PT that I don't mind covering up.
Just as an FYI, this is probably a 20yr old covered deck mostly in good shape-we put TWP after cleaning the RAD system on it about three yrs back but the sun exposed parts didn't hold stain for too long and parts of the deck became blotchy. I am hoping sanding and staining with SRD will give me better results.
