If you have used the SuperDeck deck stains, please post a review and any pictures in our comment area below. A short description of your experience would help.
The DuckBack company is the original manufacturer of Super Deck and was purchased by Sherwin Wiliams a few years ago. The Super Deck brand has gone through numerous changes since. Sherwin Williams has kept the SuperDeck brand but has added their old Deckscapes formula into the Super Deck lineup. They now have an oil based and a water-based version. This review of the Super Deck would be comparable to the current oil-based formula of the new label of the SuperDeck, under Sherwin Williams paint brand. The current Sherwin Labels Super Deck that is water based, would be comparable to our review of the Sherwin Williams Deckscapes.

SUPERDECK® Semi-Transparent Stain Scores (1-10)
Appearance After Initial Stain Application: 6
– We used the Superdeck Stain in the redwood color on a newly built redwood porch in Northern California. The final appearance after drying was a sticky uneven finish on our porch. The stain did not penetrate very well into the wood even though the Superdeck cleaner and brightener were used to prep prior to application. Only one light coat was applied.
Preventing UV Graying at 2 Year Mark: 8
– 80% of the initial color was left after 2 years of exposure in full sun. The Superdeck did score fairly well here.
Wear/Tear and Peeling: 8
– The was no peeling of the Superdeck Semi-transparent stain but there was wearing in the high traffic areas. This porch is the entrance to the home and the Superdeck was completely worn from the stairs to the door.
