New wood, old deck, what was on the deck before you stained it?

Typically stains will prematurely fail if the wood is not prepped properly or the stain was not applied properly. Of course there are few brands that just "fail" because they are of poor quality in general.

At this point you should remove the stain and start over from scratch. If semi-transparent a good stain stripper should work followed by a wood brightener to neutralize.

Guessing you may have put a solid color stain on the decking and most are not recommended for deck surfaces for the reasons you are experiencing. The solvents absorb into the wood leaving the resins and pigments on their own to be abraded from the surface when you walk on them.

Another possibility that comes to mind? Where you staining treated lumber? Did you allow enough time for treatment to absorb or weather off the surface? The stain would not stick if it were fresh unless (and then still a maybe imo) the product specified it could be used on newly treated lumber.

Strip and use a semi-transparent stain.

Ummm... no, I believe a quality stain would be in order. Try TWP (total wood protectant) and Superdeck is also a good product, stay away from behr.

Stay a way from Big box store brands go with TWP or Super deck I perfer Super deck duck back products.

Will the mysterious poster from across the ocean ever return to read the responses?
Will Mary ever realize her father is the murderer of Hill Valley?
Will Jeremy and Susan ever resolve their legal battles over custody of their pet goldfish?
Will this thread turn into another long, drawn out argument over what brand is better?

All that matters is that behr sucks...

Not sure we sway anybody from BEHRly paint or stain. I may give up and try to save people in other ways. At least I kept ALL my clients from the crap!
