One of the best lines of deck sealers is TWP (Total Wood Preservative). A deck sealer like TWP will preserve exterior wood and protect from harsh elements that cause water and UV damage. TWP deck sealers have tint in them making them semi-transparent. They are technically called deck stains but many use the word sealer instead. TWP deck sealers are one of the only EPA registered wood preservative in an oil based formula.
These sealers naturally repel water to shield the wood from water damage and wood decay. The pigments in the TWP deck sealers are UV absorbing and defend against unattractive discoloring, fading and wood graying. Utilizing selected mildewcides in all the TWP deck sealers creates a natural resistance to mold, mildew and algae, which can cause premature darkening and wood rot. The 1500 series and 100 series deck sealers help preserve and even enhance the wood grain’s natural beauty.

A quality deck stain finish is a must to hold up to these conditions.
