SuperDeck Oil Stain Review

Product was very streaky and was harder to apply than other stains. The stain didn’t look great after applying but wasn’t terrible either. 14 month weathering test showed significant color loss, mildew growth and darkening.

    I used Sherwin Williams superdeck oil based exterior deck stain (transparent). I applied this by hand. I found the exterior deck stain to be easy to apply. The deck stain soaked in quickly into treated deck wood. The coverage is good and I did not see any overlap in the application. I have not seen water bead up as in other stains when rained on. I am not sure if another coat is necessary as I could not find it in the description. Overall the deck stain seems to fit my needs well. I suppose I will know better after a years worth of weathering..

    Two years ago, I spent countless hours completely sanding my old deck, rails and spindles and applied Sherwin Williams Superdeck stain. It is now peeling off in sheets! The representative asked if a shoveled my deck, which I did, though I did not scrape it down to the wood. Well, shoveling your deck is a problem because water gets under the stain and it won’t hold to the wood. If I did nick the wood and it peeled just around that spot, well, okay, but clearly the stain did not penetrate or it wouldn’t come off in sheets. A deck product should overall stand up to moving chairs or tables that might scrape the surface. I’ve used Sherwin Williams products to paint the interior & exterior of my house and have been happy. I will never use their deck products again. I wasted so much time and money and have to now figure out how to salvage and refinish my deck.

    - CONS: Peels off in sheets if exposed to water or inclement weather.

      Julie, thanks for leaving a review. As you can see from our test results, we didn’t have much success with this product either. While we didn’t experience the stain peeling off in sheets, it quickly turned black with mold growth over much of the surface.
