    Default Staining and Sealing New Redwood

    I have a new portch of heartwood redwood. Are staining and sealing two different things or can both be done with one material?

    There are some products that do the same thing.

    Thompson's has a few that are tinted.

    When I seal wood that's around our deck, I end up doing it about every year and I use a Spar varnish. It's specially formulated to resist UV rays. It's a little thicker than sealers, like Thompson's which goes on like water.

    I've used Thompson's and wasn't thrilled due to its viscosity. It'll still be a yearly task if you want to keep up with it.

    Good Luck.
