I am trying to figure out diff between semi-transparent vs semi-solid. have lots of problems with peeling of stain on my deck that is exposed to a lot of sun. Does the semi-solid penetrate into the wood or does it sit on top and risk peeling? Also would a semi-solid require more maintenance? I am so tired of stripping and sanding my deck every other year and would like to just be able to reapply after cleaning with Restore.
As long as you remove all previous coatings, you can use the AC. All of the AC colors (including semi-solid) are penetrating stains as long as wood is prepped and the stain is not over applied. They can be cleaned and reapplied without the need for removal.
