Deck Stain

I may be opening up a can of worms, but what is the best exterior deck stain? I am trying to get another 5 years out of our rather large deck, which structurally is in good shape. I need to strip the horizontal surfaces prior to staining.

A lot depends on the condition of the deck and the weather it's exposed to. It's a good idea to check with friends/co workers to find out what holds up best in your climate. Sikkens, Cabot, BenMoore, SuperDeck - all have good reputations. I've had good results with SWP's DeckScapes.

Generally speaking, I think you'll get the longest protection from a solid body stain.
