Sorry, also have no experience w/Signature, but have used Interlux Brightside on my decks with very good results. Technique is also important. I don't want to bore you with all the religion on prep - I trust you know it's 90% in the preparation and 10% in the final application. But on that last 10% I have found 'very good' goes to 'excellent' if you use the 'roll and tip' method. That is, apply with a roller and dress the rolled paint with a good brush. Make long full strokes across the newly rolled area in a 4-6 way patter of straight, brush strokes, moving across the painted surface in small, say 4sqft areas, at a time. This method gets the most out of the flattening agents in the paint by assisting in distributing the paint more evenly than if it were simply rolled or brushed in 1 or 2 directions. Good luck.
