Default Deck stain reviews

I stumbled across this site this weekend looking for some good reviews. It seems pretty thorough and agrees with what Ken has been telling us all along.

Thanks for that site it's awesome.

I know nothing (read NOTHING) about decks (don't do exteriors / decks) and we have just built our deck and I was wondering how to ask the question about what the heck to put on it on here, without getting the barrage of "you complete ameteur - go and jump into a bottomless pit and don't come out"

Awesome

No problem HW. Ken(PressurePro) is the unoficial guru () of prep and stain info here. He's been telling us for years to avoid the store bought stuff. Finally I find a site that gives good in depth info on all this stuff. Now I'm trying to convince my local BM dealor to carry some of these products. I don't know if the manufacturers will allow them to be sold out of local stores or not, but it would be great for us if they could.

After a quick skim it seems the Armstrong Clark Transparent is what i'll go for. Not had time to see if I can get it in Canada (but have time to pee about on PT - go figure???) but may order from the States if thats so.

The joists etc are treated and have the wood treatment on, the planks are cedar and aren't screwed down yet, so not yet
