which deck stain?
Hi. Can you help me decide which deck stain brand name and type would work best for me?
First off, I live in NE Ohio (Cleveland, OH area).
I have an old deck. The last stain that was applied a couple years ago is peeling and wearing off. Unfortunately I do not know what kind of stain was used. It appears to be solid - not too much natural wood grain showing through (other than where worn). It would probably be difficult to get every bit of stain off the deck. Might have been behr but I'm not at all sure about that.
Which stain brand name and type would be best to use in this situation and what would the process need to be? The deck is old so a transparent type stain wouldn't look too good I don't think. We were thinking about a solid type but then I heard they actually wear worse on the deck floor. True?
