Thompons water sealer is OK, but looking for input on something better? Any advice? The decks are PT. Thanks!

Good one! Well I won't use TeakGuard that's for sure. Did I tell you how much I hate that product? Almost time to bubble the Mitch hates teakguard thread up. :D

No, I don't even have a wood deck. I did mine out of brick pavers. I can't imagine how much teak would cost. I could see Doug getting it on his house though. He would be out there every week with the sander and oil. (Mr Myagi - SAND THE FLOOR!)

Uh, no. That's what the kid is for. Cameronson, sand the floor, wax the car, take up the slack, hit it!

We put a coat on the treated pier approx 400sq ft. just last weekend.
I used it on my cedar deck at home approx 700sq ft. Although I used Woodscapes on the railings.
I also used it on my daughters playhouse I just built this summer Its entirely cedar, walls, floors, beams, posts, roof, everything.
And I used woodscapes on the cedar fence about 5 years ago, needs a new coat in spring. And thats about 6000 sq ft.
And I used woodscapes on the exterior of my cedar shed which is about 350 sq ft.

Not much PT in my place, but I like their products. And no I do not own any stock in the company.....
Trick is with the stuff, you have GOT to let it dry first. If not, it won't penetrate well. My trouble with the deck, was it was not dry enough, at the time I was in a rush to get it done. So the floor got to dry for, oh about three days. NOT enough, so it needs a new coat in spring too after two years, but its entirely my fault.

Uh, sure Doug. Somehow I don't see Amy letting that happen. But, it's your lie, you tell it anyway you want to! :D

It's not a lie if you read it on the internet(s). ;)

Actually, I think George had some teak platform chairs (or Chair).

I am a Mezzmers (sp) fan. My fam owns a place in the Rockies that has Cedar Siding. Several professionals in the area all use it so we did too. Both the decks and the siding look superb after 2 seasons of extreme weather.

I use CWF-UV (I think that's what they call it). I bought it at Lowe's for about $75 for 5 gallons. It seems to do a really good job. Thompson's is a total waste of money, IMHO.
