Brand New Deck
Hey all and thanks in advance for the help.
I have looked all over the forums for a very specific answer and whereas I have found several related answers...I was hoping you guys could help me with mine.
We recently had a deck installed. It is a hardwood deck and was just completed last week. I want to stain it soon, but am unclear on the steps necessary to do so. I have refinished porches and decks in the past, but never anything brand new. My question is this:
After sanding my new deck does anything else need to be done before I stain it? Do I have to wash it or being it is so new can I just sand it and then stain it?
If anyone can help me out with the steps to staining a brand new hardwood deck it would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks so much!
