Deck/Porch sealing and staining

Posted by kellithee (My Page) on

I could have probably searched the forums, but I'm too lazy.

We just moved into our new house this past April. The back deck and covered front porch were on before the worst of the winter 2013.

How soon should we seal? Before this coming winter or wait until after?

What types of stain or sealant do you recommend?

FYI: I live in Wisconsin

What material, wood, composite, concrete?

They are both wood.

I don't have pictures on this computer.
