Does your dad enjoy doing some DIY around the house? Then I'm sure he's used some deck sealer before....My favorite is Thompson's Water Seal...Thompson's not only helps protect your decking, but also has product to protect your concrete, brick and even outdoor fabric! We have been using Thompson's for years...here are some reasons why -
Usage & Benefits
- Specially formulated for exterior wood
- Clear formulas allow wood to maintain natural color
- Prevent water damage
- Tinted formulas (available in four wood tones) add color without hiding natural wood grain
- Coating resists mildew and UV damage
The Thompson's Company was formed in 1929 and initially focused on the country's boom in concrete construction. Soon, however, the company would be protecting some of the world's treasures, from skyscrapers and roller coasters to the Parthenon in Greece.
In the early 1980s, the Thompson's Company began marketing to homeowners, who made Thompson's® WaterSeal® their number one choice for protection against water damage. The deck protection category was born.
The Thompson's® WaterSeal® brand remains the undisputed national leader in the exterior waterproofing category, in terms of market share, brand recognition and consumer trust. The Thompson's Company has earned a well-deserved reputation as a leader in identifying industry trends and emerging technologies.
The really cool thing about this product is that it can be applied to damp wood!! Most waterproofers have to be applied to dry wood, so you clean the deck, wait 48 hours, then apply the waterproofer. With the Advanced formula, you can clean and treat all in one day!
