The first type of stain to consider for your deck is clear stains, this type of stain is also known as deck water sealer. This type of sealer allows the grain of the wood to still show through, and this is because it contains no oils or pigments. This type of stain protects the wood from any moisture, but it is not the most durable type of staining as it may be required to reapply the sealer more than once a year depending on how much damage it has incurred.

Another type of stain to consider for your deck would be the solid stain. This type of stain is ideal if your deck has taken a lot of damage over the years, and may look run down, the solid stain is stained like paint which has the ability to hide imperfections that a clear stain or semi-transparent stain wouldn’t be able to cover. Solid stains are also able to cover and hide discoloration that the deck has developed through wear and tear or through sun damage. This type of stain is one of the highly recommended types of deck stain as it is a lot more durable than clear stains or semi-transparent stains.
Semi-transparent stains are ideal as it is both durable, and allows for the grain of the visibility of the wood. This type of stain for a deck is great if you are hoping to cover blemishes but still want the grain of the wood to be visible. This type of stain works in soaking into the wood but still leaving the decks wood as visible as the semi-transparent type of stain. Unlike a solid stain, semi-transparent stains do not peel off and require much less maintenance than clear or solid stains.
