Best deck stain to fill cracks?

The best deck stain to fill small cracks in an old deck is Gulf Synthetics Deck Revive. There are other deck resurfacer options for old decks but they are largely ineffective. An old deck with larger cracks will need to be restored another way. Cutting out damaged sections and replacing them with new boards is an option but you’ll need to carefully blend the stain into the old and new boards for a uniform look.
