Sherwin Williams DeckScapes Clear Deck Sealer

Written by .

sherwin williams deckscapes Sherwin Williams DeckScapes Clear Deck SealerThe other day I power washed the deck and farmers porch. Now I need to choose a sealer to protect the Cambara decking. When we built the house I used Penofin Penetrating Sealer to seal the cambara decking. Well I’ve been pretty unhappy with that sealer. I don’t think it has held up well at all to the snow, ice, rain and sun that we get here in New England. A friend of mine has used this Sherwin Williams DeckScapes sealer with some good luck so I’m going to give it a shot. The Sherwin Williams site recommends that I remove the old sealer with their Stain and Sealer remover (removes both latex and oil based sealers, Penofin is oil based) prior to applying the new sealer. The new sealer is a water based product which is nice (green too!). Hopefully I’ll be able to do this in the next few weeks so stay tuned for an update post.

    I bought 6 gallons of SW Deckscapes to water seal my deck. It looks
    good on the Internet but, on the cans, it says NOT A WORD about
    “water sealer”.

    Whats rhe deal?

      @ Mike – Sherwin Williams Deckscapes is made and sold as an exterior deck sealing product. Most deck sealers help protect the wood from sun, rain, wind and other environmental conditions. I’ve yet to find a deck sealer that claims to completely seal out water.

    They look like handy tips. We don’t get snow in Melbourne, but most of the year is pretty cold. We only have hot days for few weeks in the Summer. We bought a new fence and still haven’t painted it.

    How did the Deckscapes S william waterborn sealer worked out? I need to re-seal my deck in the next week and I’m considering using the same sealer.

  • Kurt McConnell says:

    Does anyone know if this product (Sherwin Williams Deckscapes Advanced WaterBorne Formula, Exterior Deck Stain – Clear/Sealer) works on hardwood (mahogony).

  • Sonya says:

    Does anyone know if it is essentially required to use Sherwin Williams Stain and Sealer Remover and then the Revive product if I am resealing my deck? It currently has Deckscapes by Sherwin Williams on it (semi transparent) and we are going to use a Deckscapes product (solid) this time.

    Trying to figure out if it’s a sales ploy for Sherwin Williams on the extra products. Would simply pressure washing the deck prior to re-staining be sufficient. I am located in NC.
