Deck stain alternatives?

Gulf Deck Revive CoatingWhen the deck seems too far gone to use a semi-transparent deck stain as recommended by our experts, the best deck stain alternative is a deck resurfacer. A deck resurfacer is designed to soak into the cracks of the wood, sealing it in against moisture and further damage. Once you apply a deck resurfacer you are stuck with it until you rebuild the deck. It is a good option if you have a deck that is beginning to splinter and you want to remove injury hazards for children or pets while putting off a complete deck restoration.
