    Default Cedar Deck stain

    We have a cedar deck that is only 3 years old. I have used Behr Premium Semi-transparent stain 2x now. Every spring the stain is worn off, like paint would peel. I thought that after the first year was due to flashing since I stained during the summer. We removed the stain and restained the following year. But that is not the case with this past year. It was done early in the summer/late spring. I live in Missouri and we do not have that bad of winters and it seems like this stain can not take any snow or ice. My deck looks like the stain had been applied years ago. Should I use another brand of stain or type to prevent this from happening. I know eventually the deck will need restaining but I wouldn't think I should have to do this every year. Help!!
