|I wouldn't put the Rust-oleum product on the deck. Because of the thickness of the product, it most likely won't lay down evenly and you'll have big roller marks in it. I think it won't look like a nicely stained deck.
(I guess I should say that I'm a painting contractor and 90% of my work is getting houses spruced up for market).
And there will be clumps of it in between the boards and it's just too much product for decks. (Unless you clean out the space between each board as you go).
Since you already have a semi-transparent stain on there, a semi-solid stain may work (if you can power wash off a lot of what on there). But your best bet is just a solid color decking stain.
It won't fill in big gouges in the wood the way the rustoleum will, but frankly, the gouges won't be all that noticeable to people walking through.
And you'll still get some of the texture of the wood to show through, which the Rustoleum will negate.
