Deck Staining Question

Deciding between SuperDeck, Olympic and Reddy Seal. Anybody have experience with these? Also, I assume colder weather is a tougher time to stain?

Mostly personal preference. I like Olympic but others have differing opinions. Check can for temp ranges. I would think you would be good into the 40 degree area.

Of the 3, SuperDeck has the best reputation but the proper prep and application always plays a big part. The old standard was you could start painting at 50 and rising and should quit at 55 and falling. A lot of the newer coatings are formulated to handle application in colder temps. Substrate temp is just as important as the air temp!

I've used Olympic and it was OK but the next time I need more (I bought a bunch of cans...) I'm going to try a different brand just for comparison.
