What Deck Stain UV Protection?

The best deck stain for UV protection is a tinted deck stain. The tint or pigment is what keeps the deck from greying over time. The more tint or color added to the deck stain the more it protects against UV rays. Clear sealers do not have a tint and therefore do not have UV protection. Clear sealers will start to gray in a matter of months.
