Has anyone has issues with scratching once a deck has been stained? I want to go with the Dark Walnut, but my husband is afraid scratches on the deck floor will show up noticeably.
Asked by: Claire
I stained my 1500 Sq Ft deck with Ready Seal Dark Walnut 3 years ago. I did 2 coats back to back. Deck turned out magnificent to say the least. I have 3 or 4 table and chair sets on my deck. Lots of chairs but never any scratching. Most chairs are old without good ends on the legs and still no scratching. Just painted outside of my house and plan on staining deck just one coat as recommended by Ready Seal for 3 year maintenance. Deck is just now starting to fade! Lasted 3 years. Best stain I ever used in my entire life!

What type roller should I use for applying ready seal on my deck?

What type roller should I use for applying ready seal on my deck?
Asked by: Len
My preferred application method for applying Ready Seal is an HVLP (high volume low pressure) sprayer. It allows supreme control over the application. Do not spray on a windy day. However, if you prefer to use a roller, you will want a roller that holds the stain and limits spatter. And, when rolling Ready Seal, watch your speed. It is very thin and going too fast will certainly fling the stain to places you do not want to coat. Check out rollers like the Whizz Maximus. Also, have a brush handy to move the stain into areas the roller cannot reach. I hope this helps.

Other than making a mess with over spray, you cannot easily mess up the results either. It soaks into the wood rather than just coating the top like many other 'stains' on the market so I believe it will last longer with a more consistent look and re-staining in a few years should be very easy as well since no stripping is required. Because it soaks in, you do have to use quite a bit more than you would expect. Well worth the investment and the results are beautiful.
