With more than 20 years’ experience owning and operating our own deck staining business, we have tried pretty much every brand of deck stain out there. We Q&A with thousands of contractors, homeowners, and project managers about their projects, what works, and what does not.
Last year we tested the Restore-A-Deck Wood Stain. The RAD stain completes the line of the RAD Cleaner, Strippers, and Brighteners that have been around for 15+ years. Restore-A-Deck wood stain utilizes the latest advancements in wood stain technology to properly seal and protect the wood in 4 beautiful semi-transparent finishes. The formula penetrates deep into the wood grain to protect your deck against UV damage and water that can promote growth of mold and mildew. It is eco-safe and easily cleaned up during the application process with soap and water. After one year, the deck stain had no wear/tear and peeling, no mold/mildew/algae, no UV graying, and very little color darkening.
For reference, here are pictures of our project:

The best new deck stain on the market is the Restore-A-Deck wood stain. We base this decision not only from the ease of application and convenience, that this is also can be applied the same day as the prep. After a year enduring this brutal winter, we have evaluated our decks and their deck stains for longevity. Restore-A-Deck has held up to its promise to stay true to its original application color and quality through the last year. We will continue to monitor the progress of this newer stain and post results as needed.
