question about resurfacing decks

Hi all,

Here at Jackson Place Cohousing in Seattle, Washington, we have just had the 
exterior of our buildings repainted, and it looks quite spiffy. Now we are 
contemplating having some of our decks resurfaced. Two different contractors 
have given us bids based on two different products, with somewhat different 
prices, and two different bids for the job. Each claims that the product 
they use is the best. Our Operations team members are not familiar with 
either product, because this is the first time we have had to have this 
done. So, we would like to know if any other cohousing group has experience 
with either or both of these products, and, if you do, what can you tell us 
about it.

The more expensive product is: Pacific Polymer Industries Inc.'s 
polyurethane 5001 & 6001 product.

The less expensive product is: Sonoguard, a polyurethane product.

Some of our decks look in better condition than others. So, we would also be 
interested in finding out if anyone knows if decks need to be refinished at 
specific intervals, even if they don't have much traffic.

Whatever you can tell us about either or both products and about deck 
refinishing will be greatly appreciated
