Ideal for wood decks and fences is a transparent or semi-transparent oil base stain whether they are new or previously stained decks. Of course if your deck has had a semi opaque, solid color or has been painted you can’t go back to semi-transparent.
The heavier, more opaque finishes are not ideal for decks because they have too much exposure to the elements and tend to begin pealing after a few years creating a maintenance headache.
For decks and fences previously treated with opaque products there is nothing for it but to continue with an opaque product and do the necessary prep work before applying more of the same.
Decks and fences previously treated with transparent sealers and semi-transparent stains can simply be power washed, allowed to dry thoroughly and then recoated by airless spray or by brush and roller with more of the transparent or semi-transparent oil base product.
