The following are some pros of staining your deck with Sun Frog’s top-notch deck stains. So, let's go through them in detail.
Locks Oils in, Water Moisture Out
The biggest enemies of a wooden deck are Sun and Water and decks have to face them almost every day. If your deck is not stained and sealed properly, water will enter through its surface, causing swelling. During hot weather, water in the wood evaporates, causing it to shrink. This swelling/shrinking process causes wood to crack and twist more than would occur with well sealed wood. Sealers promote dimensional stability AND improve your wood's appearance. Decks are expensive to build and more and more expensive to replace so Seal them when they're new and maintain the seal over time! Your first year's seal on new wood is the hardest to get to last since the wood hasn't "opened up" to penetration of sealer much. After the first year, repeat seals, especially ours, should last 2 or 3 years before needing to re-done. Apply as much as the wood will take in ONE overall application (wet on wet if soaking in still is taking place), then lightly rag any excess and let dry 48 hours before using. Good to go!
