Why did my stain peel off after less than a year?

Two years ago we build a beautiful deck. My contractor dad helped us build it and said to wait a full 12 months to stain it so it has time to season. We waited and then went with his recommendation to stain using sikkens stain because it’s the best. So I went to my local ace hardware and special ordered the stain in a dark grey color. I then spent a week in the hottest weather we had staining the deck. I was told it should last up to five years. So I paid extra for your product and spent extra time to do it right. After the snow melted, we were unpleasantly surprised to see how much stain had worn away. I have pictures I will send when you message me back. Thank you for your help.
