Help on Staining my wood deck

I am planning to seal and stain my cedar deck. I power washed it with plain water and sanded it, then I used a leaf blower to remove the dust. I am thinking of using a semi-transparent sealer/stain. Is there a particularly good product to use? What steps should I take before or after applying the stain? I plan to use a roller for all applications, is there a special type I should use?

Thanks for the help in advance.

I've used a number of them in a professional capacity, and my preference is still Cabots or Sikkens

The Cabots is a little less money, more readily available, and has great instructions so I'd recommend them off-hand

You can check out the website for more info

Depends on where you live. Stains are very different based on what types of government regulations are in place.
