    Timely thread as I put down new deck boards last summer. I just used regular pressure treated deck boards, nothing fancy, but now want to do something to seal them and prolong the life. Any recommendations for pressure treated? I prefer a clear finish, not looking to change the color like a stain might, just want soemthing to seal it and protect from the elements. I appreciate it!

    Contact the customer service line at Woodrich. They were very helpful. Answered all of my questions.

    I would strongly recommend you get a product that does not have to be stripped before re application. Look at the various types of timber oils.

    It has undergone some positive formulation changes recently, but It’s not a product I would recommend when better products are out there.

    It’s one the medium/low spectrum of what’s available.

    Next time you treat your siding go with the sikkens Cetol- would be my suggestion.
    That is everything I need to know.

    Thanks for taking the time with all the newbie questions.

    There's been a lot of good information in this thread. I am no expert on this kind of thing, but here in New Mexico we have a lot of UV damage to wood due to higher altitude and dry conditions. That turquoise blue sky is because of little moisture in the atmosphere. Unprotected wood will dry out and crack.

    One thing I have used is something to be found on marine decking on boats - Spar Urethane. Use whatever stain you want, then put a finishing coat or two of spar urethane on and it wears well, and seems to be resistant to heavy UV exposure.

    Marine Spar Urethane Varnish is an excellent top coat and protectant. I use it on old late 1800's and early 1900's Victorian homes in Denver, it's perfect for the 100+ year old Oak front doors and it gives a lovely amber hue.

    Spar vanish is nice, gives great protection, and looks nice. It's also labor intensive to apply properly. If left too long and allowed chip/crack/peel, it usually requires stripped and sanding to prep for reapplication and in a high wear/traffic area like a deck, that will be much more often than say a door, a door threshold, railings, etc. The other issue is that is very slippery when wet which is usually not a good thing on a deck.
