I have a 2 year old cedar deck that I stained after a few months with Benjamin Moore Arborcoat semi-transparent stain…it is junk and started to peel after the first winter. I waited another winter to get as much of it off as possible “naturally”, but need to do the staining again this year.
I have heard odd things about AC and will try the “Cedar” semi-transparent, or Amber (will get some samples though).
I live in Vancouver, BC so we get a fair amount of rain, and possible snow.
My question is what is recommended approach to get this horrible BM product off the deck, and prep it so I can stain with the AC product this season? I have a big flat (2x6”) cedar deck with a one step (along the entire edge) going down to the lawn. No railings to worry about.
