We have been using and reviewing wood and deck stains since we started working on restoring exterior wood in the early 1990s. This site was developed to help consumers research and ask questions on what would be the best deck stain, with the goal of longevity and just as important, ease of reapplication. Our favorite deck stains have always been penetrating semi-transparent stains. These stain types allow the wood grain to show and if they truly soak into the wood grain, reapplying is easier down the road.

I currently have behr premium semi transparent weather proofing all
In one stain. It is a dark color. I want to change the color and was told if I use solid then I will only have to clean the deck and not strip it. Do I need to strip the previous stain first? It is a dark brown semi transparent, the color I want is dune gray solid. Thank you.
