Although there are all types of sealers at your Hardware Stores the best is to fiberglass the deck with sand in it. It lasts for a lifetime and will prevent you from having to redo your deck as often as you do. If you don't want to go to the trouble of doing this then get the advice at the Hardware Store as there are so many ways of doing it.
