And don't start with "Thompson's". ;):no:


What is the consensus with regards to the best stain/sealer product to apply to cedar deck boards to maximize the life of the deck. No cost restrictions.

TIA!!

Whatever kind of wood you use for decking use TWP for the stain. Several of their colors look good on cedar. A guy here in town who does nothing but staining uses butternut brown on cedar, says it last longest in our sun. Personally I like a blend of 2 rustic & 1 cedartone. Put two coats on, one right after the other for best performance.
