What would you recommend for best UV protection on a new cedar deck that surrounds a swimming pool? How many coats and best waiting period? We are near Lawrence, KS, hot humid summers, fairly harsh winters, medium amount of snow. Deck is full sun until about 5pm.
Wait 3 months. Prep first with Restore A deck Kit. Stain with 1 coat of stain. Use a semi-trans or semi-solid color.
