Have you found a stain out there that will hold up to the elements and not peel? They all promise that but I have yet to find one that holds up to the promise.

Sherwin Williams. Wood escape.

DUlux. Flood on deck floor. Have not found a stain that works. Key is extra preperation. Because of our seasons.

We usually use Sansin. As always, successful jobs depend on proper preparation but this stain is not a film building stain which is actually a film applied to the surface. Those stains will eventually peel because any coating can only take so much wear before it braks through. This is a penetrating stain which is designed to penetrate and bond with the wood. We offer a no peel warranty with proper maintenance and have no issues - even in our climate here in Edmonton.

Good luck!
