First time home owner, thank you for creating and maintaining this site. I live in the mountains of Georgia and recently purchased this home. I found these two products in the basement, but no idea if it was used for the siding, the deck, or something else:

  • Sikkens Ceto 1 077 cedar
  • Structure Wood care base coat

Based on the photos, what stain/color would you recommend? Should I apply a clear sealer on top once the stain has dried? I think the wood is pine. I've never stained a deck before, will be following the tips posted on this site.

You will need to prep by removing the prior coating first. Use a stain stripper and then a wood brigtener while pressure washing. Stain after with TWP 1500 Series or Armstrong Clark Stains.

Do not add a sealer or coating over the top of a deck stain.

Thank you very much for your advice, I'll post back with pictures when the work is complete (if it ever stops raining).
