Anyone on this group ever use Cabot Solid Acrylic Latex Deck Stain
I thought I would save a few bucks last year and buy Cabot's SALDS
w/Teflon. Big mistake. This isn't the first dance I've been to, using
20+ years ago, I stained my home with BM semi-trans. About 15 years ago, I
decided to stain it with BM solid latex siding stain. Great, it lasted
well, weathered well, no peeling or flaking. Last year I stained my home
again, using BM solid latex, decided to stain the shed with the same, and
some playground swing-sets, clothes line posts and a few other things made
out of PT lumber. Looks great!
I used H&C concrete stain on my front stoop and steps, and foundation
block. After throwing salt on the stoop & steps during the course of the
winter, everything still looks fantastic.
Last year I pressure washed my 15 year old deck, let it dry out for 3 days,
and used Cabots. As soon as the cold weather started setting in, I noticed
some peeling/flaking. Now that Spring is upon us, my deck is a mess. My
cedar patio furniture is flaking/peeling also..... I also used Cabot's on
Talking with a co-worker, they said their dad's deck is doing the same
thing. Found out, he used Cabot's SALDS w/Teflon for the first time.
Upon checking the net......... HOLY COW, there are many complaints about
Cabot's SALDS w/Teflon.
So if anyone on this NG used the same type of stain, I would be interested
in the results you got.
