If you want your deck to last as long as possible and retain its natural beauty, consider adding a sealer to it. From protecting your wood to enhancing its grain, here are the main benefits of adding a sealer to your deck: 

  • Wood decks usually need only one to two coats of sealer.
  • Sealing gives wood a beautiful, natural finish.
  • Sealers enhance the wood’s natural grain and beauty.
  • It’s possible to apply paint on top of sealers.
  • Sealers protect wood from water and rot.
