Just an FYI, but within the last two years SW reformulated their SuperDeck semi-transparent stain and it now has a lapping issue, sometimes a tackiness issue when dry, and there is a high chance of it turning black within a few months. Our rep actually recommended that we buy something else because they were sick of getting calls about it. We have had to redo several decks multiple times before switching products.

I have no idea on when it will be fixed.

My favorite is Flood, I pick it up from Rodda here in Oregon. With any stain, surface preparation and application play a huge part in durability

They Armstrong and Clark stains are excellent on wood that has not been previously stained. They are a highly penetrating stain, and I didn't like the way they looked on my deck that had been stained with the PPG stain. Also I didn't like the look on some areas that the wood was aged. It soaked in and didn't actually leave much color, although I suppose I could have put a second coat on. But it does what a real stain should do and penetrates and conditions the wood instead of just staying on the surface and wearing off. PM me if you want contact info.

No plug for Storm coatings here? I'm perplexed.

I've used the Armstrong Clark several times with god results. Haven't tried Ready Seal, but it's now sold at Big Orange (HD). The coverage on RS sounds horrible--like you might need a railroad tank car full per deck.

In the past I used TWP for years and switched to Armstrong oil based and loved it. I quit using it when SW in my area stopped supplying it. Last year I began using Sikkens and was impressed with its performance and mileage I used it on a couple of jobs and my own deck late last summer. So far it has held up well. I am also impressed with how splatters clean off siding and patios etc.

Our last deck was Sikkens and it went on really well and looked good.
