Have a deck that was coated with Thompsons Water seal about 5 years ago by
Would like to re-coat, but with a "better" sealer; perhaps one of the ones
that Olympic offers.
Not sure which is the best; any opinions on ?
Anyway, I understand that Thompson's is basically a wax based sealer.
Therefore, my question is: can I use one of the other sealers available now
over this successfully,
or would the wax content of Thompsons probably prevent absorption of the
new, presumably non wax based,
when I used thompson's, it seemed like I hardly got a year out of it.
(but then I think they do say to recoat each year). So, if you
properly clean it, and do the "water absorption" test, you shouldn't
have any problems recoating it.
My deck passed the water absorption test before I cleaned it, that's
why I figured the seal failed after 1 year.
