Wood looks dazzling and natural as it rests, elegantly organized in panels making up the back deck overlooking the pool, patio, and play yard. Wood is a standard for decks, obviously, but there is a popular problem with wood. It is natural, and this means it will degrade. Staining is the most popular response to wood to preserve its overall look. Staining also has the unfortunate side effect (some believe so, at least) of making the wood look unnatural. No longer is it purely wood. it may glimmer and glow in an unnatural way.
Is there a middle ground between a thickly stained unnatural looking wood deck, and a purely natural one that is unfavorably vulnerable to the very nature it came from? There are very subtle Commercial Staining options on the market that have a variety of benefits, not limited to protecting the wood itself. For one, the stain will smooth the wood. It makes splinters less common because the wood needs to physically go through that stain layer. Stain will also deter that ugly black growth of dirt that accumulates. The stain is smoother and more resilient to dirt and mold that become mainstays in old, natural wood decks.
Protecting the deck wood is a top priority, and the greatest enemy of natural wood is water. This is exactly what the Commercial Staining process protects from. A single fine layer of stain will be enough to keep out water. Water distorts the texture of the wood. It also creates cracks that only become the beginning of a much larger problem.

Look at staining as a protective coat. Some stains are so subtle, they hardly distort the color of the wood at all. others can almost change the coloration entirely, and that can be quite exciting. Either way, staining is an additive to an already great deck space. Keep it refined and natural without making it fully vulnerable to snow, ice, intense heat, and rain. No part of the world is immune to weather.
