Should i stain my deck now?

kevingalaxySeptember 21, 2009

So i stripped my deck all ready to stain but its been rainign every few days and i havent had a chance to get it painted. My question is, should i just leave it til spring now? Or do i need to stain it before the winter - wouldnt the snow etc mess up the finish anyway?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

As long as it's still over 50 degrees, you can stain. Just wait until it's been dry for 48 hours. I wouldn't wait until spring unless you're in a part of the country/world that's already too chilly. The stain will help protect the wood through the winter.
