rained on newly stained deck, now what??

jaansuAugust 3, 2012

Weather had been dry for days, forecast had nothing on radar, I finish off my massrantuba deck with the Messner's UV protection deck stain and a freak thundershower appears. Besides sweeping off the standing water, what are my options now?

Just wait it out and see. I had (unforecasted) rain within 24 hours of staining mine and it held up fine. If it looks ok now and isn't tacky, you're ok.

Messner's says the same. It is a little patchy where it has less time to dry but apparently I can just restain. What a relief!
