Salt water resistant decks stains
 
Does anyone have ideas or know of any deck stain products that are salt water resistant?
I have a salt water pool and for the last 3 years I have had to re-stain the deck every summer due to the salt water breaking down the stain.
Have looked through out the net and can't find anything.

The wood on the deck is Cedar.

Any comments or suggestions???:(:(

regards M.Lopez

Thanks for the feed back.

Do you have any name Brands. I live in Canada and would have to source local.
Ran into problems ordering stains in the US.

Thanks greatly appreciated.

Try Epifanes, Interlux, ZSpar.....at least one of those should be available there. Check with a boat and marine supply house.

Add Sikkens Cetol to that list....I believe they're international.

If the deck is stained you might want to restain the deck where it has been bleached out by the saltwater and sun before varnishing. The varnish can then be used over the whole stained deck. So marine varnish, or spar varnish, doesn't break down quite as the polyurethane varnish used for hardwood floors. It is expensive and you'll still need to recoat every couple of years. Maybe take a look at some clear coats intended for decks. Also, Hamilton marine will be able to help you. They are a knowledgable supplier: www.hamiltonmarine.com
