best deck preservative???
I'm sorry if this is a very basic and possibly redundant question. I've tried to search the site for any previous threads, and done a lot of web based research, but I still need help.
We are in the midst of installing a redwood deck, and the wood is so beautiful, we have decided to keep the look, and go with a clear penetrating sealant. From looking online, I've read that the best products are 1.) penetrating 2.) have a high resin content 3.) UV protection 4.) mildewcide and 5.) no waxes or silicones to close the pores entirely and induce peeling and mold. We *do not* want to have to recoat the deck every year. I read that good products will last for 3-4 years. Can anyone recommend a good product that they have used with success?
Thanks in advance for your help!
