 Hi everyone. I’m in Ohio and deck is West facing so mostly shade except for sun in afternoon.  
the first pic is today 24 mos after staining, peeling everywhere. . 2nd pic is 2 yrs ago when it was stained.  3rd pic is 2 yrs ago after sanding before stain was applied.  I love the color and look of the deck Unstained but am afraid to go with a transparent stain.  Also I want this to last more than 2 yrs.  Will a transparent stain last and not peel after 2 yrs?  Water or oil based?  
Thanks and I’m glad I found this site.  

Jeff

You cannot use a transparent stain over this solid stain unless you power sand off the current coating. That is not easy to do.

2-3 years with a semi-transparent is the max you will get: https://www.deckstainhelp.com/the-5-best-deck-stain-reviews-and-ratings/
