Not if your deck is exposed to sun and rain. Pigment is probably the
best (and certainly the cheapest) way to keep the sun out. There are
different options for keeping water out that depend on the kind of use
your deck gets.

ok...thanks. I didnt think there was anything. Ill got ahead and use Behr
10yr solid stain. I pressure washed the deck and it looked so nice I

every 2-3 years.
Go ahead, but don't think it will last you 10 years on the deck.

because it won't last 10 years. I think they are optimistic about 5 years
