With respect to what “look” you want, it’s a matter of personal taste as to how much color or opacity you wish to give any deck’s wood. Most people with new redwood (or recently cleaned redwood, in good condition) want the wood to look as “natural” as possible, so they choose a “clear” product, with or without color enhancing pigments. In choosing a color read the label carefully; sometimes a product called “redwood” means it’s been formulated for redwood; other times it means it’s a redwood color.
