I replaced my plywood deck flooring and coated it with Thompson’s clear water seal. What type of paint should I use? I want no-slip deck with maximum water protection. I live close to Sacramento, California, so it gets to 100° in the summer and winter are mild and rarely gets to freezing.

If painting it is what you want… then first you need to PRIME it with an Exterior Grade oil base wood Primer… 1 coat… then after it’s dry, top coat it with an Exterior Porch & Deck Ename color of choice, use an Acrylic paint, high grade, like Sherwin Williams… Your paint store will sell you a Grit-Like Material to add to the paint, to make it very slip resistant… just follow label directions… Good Luck!
