Sikken versus Cabot
Which product works best on treated lumber? Building a pergola and want colored stain

Cabot looses this one!

Both are great stains but you may find Sikkens to be about twice the price.
At least in my area it is.

I haven't used Sikken, so this post is probably worthless (sorry), but I have loved everything I have ever done with Cabot.

I take it you want a semi-transparent stain? Either would be fine but Sikken would be my preference. If you want a solid color stain? This Benjamin Moore fan would recommend either Sherwin Williams or MABs solid color acrylic stains over anything. They are probably one in the same at this point? You can have the stain tinted to any color or pick a factory mix. Great stuff.

Neither unless you plan on maintaining it properly. Sikkens can become a nightmare within a year. Cabots if not applied correctly can become a pain.
