Solid Color Deck Stain Reviews for 2019

Our favorite deck stains have always been the 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. Solid color deck stains have always been a “last resort” coating in our opinion. We have not been huge fans of the appearance or performance of solid deck stains but do understand that there is a need for them. That being said, there are some really good solid color deck stains on the market for 2019.

I used Ultra deck cleaner. Now I have a gummy mess. It lifted the leftover stain, which was a Flood product
