Default Deck Finish?

Been away from the forum for several years, but back seeking advice...pressure treated deck 10 yrs old, had been stained (typical redwood color), condition is average, no major surface issues. So what paint/stain do you guys recommend?

The reviews on these new fangled "coatings", "renew" deck finishes are horrible for those who have used them.

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance,
Ron

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

That Sikkens product looks good and its oil based. My kids tried an expensive lwater based on their deck up in Grande Prairie, Alberta and it peeled off the next summer even though they followed the instructions to the letter. I would also use something like Behr's All In One Deck Wash on it first and if you can pressure wash the deck for the rinse after using the deck wash even better.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Ron; I agree with all the negative anti-water-based-finish comments. Terrible crap.
You could probably make an oil based concoction that'd last longer than the water based coatings.
Also, make sure the stain coating is specifically approved for decks, ie horizontal surfaces that take wear.

As always, you guys rock! Glad to see so many regulars are still around here and active! (Stick, DaninVan, Gene, Chuck)...
Moved back to NC 2 yrs ago, so this deck is "new" to us, no clue what the PO used, but it's in relatively good shape save a few small areas that need to be filled. Any advice on what to fill with? Bondo? Marine epoxy?

Good advice on Sikkens, will go that route.

Thx much!!
