Restaining and sealing a deck


Hey everyone. We had our deck built back in 2007, let it cure for two years, then stained it with an oil based stain in 2009. Of course it's very faded now, so it needs restaining. I would like to seal it with a nice polyurethane too. Would it be okay to use the same oil based stain, then poly it?

No. What did you use last time?

Do you know brand, some cannot be sealed over top of the old one. Anyway it has to be cleaned with a cleaner/brightener at least.

No idea offhand. We bought it from Sherwin Williams some years ago. I can check the label when I get home.

It may no longer be available, you have to check with SW to see what it is or was replaced with.

The stain is supposed to fade like that. That keeps it from peeling and allows you go right over it again with the same product with little prep. I would not use a polyurethane as it will still fade in the sun and now the stain underneath can pop up the polyurethane. It also can make the deck very slick.

Once you poly something, can you ever go over it again without sanding?
