One of our standby options is Cloverdale Sharkskin Deck and Siding Stain. It’s a waterborne alkyd making it fairly durable, and it’s a good bang for the buck. It is less prone to flashing (sheen differences where paint has overlapped) than other waterborne alkyds such as Flood or SuperDeck.
Surface preparation is a crucial first step to ensure a beautiful and lasting wood finish. FLOOD® Wood Care offers products for preparing all types of wood, and for cleaning stained or resurfaced wood between applications.
