I live in Colorado and have a new deck. It is hot as hell here in the summer and my deck has direct sunlight all summer.
I've been looking for a type of stain that will work well in desert like conditions. I have been warned to stay away from big box stores; even from the products that reputable companies might offer there.
What type of stain will hold up to harsh sunlight conditions? Should I be looking for another type of product, like a sealer? I just don't want it to end up looking blotchy or start to flake off.
