I need to reseal our south facing PT-wood deck, which gets ALL the
weather and has to be redone every two years. It has been sealed
twice already with Cabot's, and I'm debating whether to use Cabot's
solid stain again or try the Behr solid product for less $$. Can
anyone tell me how well the Behr performs? Is it better than
Thompson's or Olympic?
I've used both, and Cabots seem to have better overall performance and
On a PT deck it doesn't matter..As you said you will have to redo it every
couple of years as NOTHING seems to last on PT decks...Get the Behr...
Thanks for the comments. Other fora I've checked have had very mixed
reviews about the Behr, and one comment I read is that it basically is
a protectant film, so it doesn't repel rain and snow the way other
products seem to shed them, and the commenter had to endure a frozen
walking surface (not what I need in our Great Lakes climate!). I've
decided to stay with Cabot's as I know what I'll get with it, and it
may adhere to the existing Cabot's better. The Cabot's lasts about 3
years on the areas of the deck that are not heavily trafficed, but by
the end of that time, the areas we walk on all the time really need to
be recoated. So, that time is this summer.
