I painted my deck; what can I put on it to seal it? My deck is covered.

Best is spar varnish, the same stuff as they mop onto the decks of ocean going sail boats. If that is too slick for you, use an oil based porch and floor paint. NOT a latex paint. Latex paints are initially cheaper, but can't handle the abuse, that a proper oil based paint can.

For the really high traffic areas, for example the entrance from the garden to the deck, or around the BBQ, you can mix a bit of PolyFilla into the paint. (NOT any similar wall patching product!) That makes it as hard and durable as a counter top.

Have FUN!
