    Best Water Sealant for New Deck . . . ??

    Just built a new deck using salt-treated pine lumber. Need suggestions as to what type of water sealant treatment would be best?

    Would appreciate any benefit of your experiences . . . !

    Good question. I've never heard or used salt treated pine before. Is it nice material?

    It's decent lumber. Supposed to last a while. Used it to replace
    our old redwood deck I built in '77. Carpenter bees did a number on the redwood the last 4-5 years. :eek:
    Can't find redwood any more at a reasonable price so used the treated pine. Now want to apply a stain/preservative . . . just gotta' pick the right one.

    Going to Lowe's tomorrow . . .

    Any reason why you didn't go with a synthetic deck material?

    Used motor oil seems to work good on the deck of my brother's trailer and the sides of my neighbor's barn. Apply it on a hot sunny summer day, and within a day the "oil" smell is gone. I used CWF on my polebarn several years ago, but I'm going with the used oil when I re-apply it later this year.

    I do this on my equipment trailer, BUT I mix the oil 50/50 with Diesel to help it soak in. I am unsure I would do this on a deck by my home as that oil may get tracked in the home over time and ruin the flooring near the deck.

    Doesn't the wood need to dry for a season before you seal it?

    Price.

    I retired from Eastman Chemical Co. and they make synthetic deck material now . . . it's really nice and is sold at the local Lowe's store but is prohibitively expensive. I compared it to the lumber I used and it was roughly six times as expensive . . . Redwood would have been less pricey but is just not available in NE Tennessee . . . so went with the treated lumber.

    There may be other synthetics out there, but I didn't look any further than Lowe's.
