Advice on staining cedar deck?
We are about to install a clear cedar deck and I am researching staining. The deck faces South and right now it is about 1/4 shaded by a large Bay tree. The deck meets/is flush with the house hardwood floors which are red oak with a water based stain so it is a very light clear in color (no real red showing). I have been researching staining and am wondering about the differences in the brands and finishes. Is there a "staining cedar 101" place to look for good advice on brands and steps to make sure it is sealed properly? Thanks in advance.
