Types of deck finishes?

There are many different types of deck finishes or deck stains. The types of deck finishes include water- and oil-based deck stains, penetrating and film-forming deck stains, deck resurfacing stains, semi-transparent and semi-solid deck stains, and solid color deck stains. See the links below for details. Clear sealer or polyurethane finish is not appropriate for decks. Semi-transparent deck stains are the most recommended by DeckStainHelp.com experts.
