Realistically, three years before looking like it could use a little help is good for oil-based stains
The best deck stain brushes I've ever used are "Bestt Stainer" by Bestt Liebco
If you have an old finish on it, you may want to use the finish remover or cleaner recommended by the stain co.
Thanks for the reply. Yes CIL is Canadian. I live in Toronto Ontario. From the reaction of others, I gather Benjamin Moore is the preferred paint. I'll try and get the Bestt Stainer product. Based on what I have learned from others, I will stay away from Behr and wood cleaning system.
I wonder what store I should go to in Toronto to buy my paint, cleaning and brushes.
Thanks again for your help.
