I am power washing my deck with High Pressure Water ... after 10 years in
the weather. Pressure treated wood. It looked the same colour as barn
board but now it looks like new pressure treated wood ... or as if I had
just built the deck yesterday. Is there some kind of stain I can put on the
deck that will keep it looking new?
You'll want to sand it, first (pressure washing tends to bring out the
grain, and bare feet don't like the texture or splinters that result).
There are many products for this -- from transparent seals to dark
stains, manufactured specifically for decks. The main thing to remember
is keeping out water damage and UV damage (the latter is what causes the
wood to "gray").
