I built a new home 3.5 years ago. I had a deck built with it. The deck is made of cedar. I am having a problem with stain staying on the cedar. I have used different ptoducts: Cuprynol semi transparent, Thompsons anti scuff semi transparent deck stain. After each winter(live in SW Michigan; western exposure; afternoon sun exposure)the stain actually begins to peel and lift. The last time I completely stripped the deck, sanded it(80 grit paper)and still had problems with it peeling. It seems like the stain does not penetrate the wood. When I do apply the stain, I do it while the deck is in the shade. Bob, what can I do? Is there a better product that will NOT peel? I really do not want strp, sand, stain the deck each year.
