timing for sealing redwood deck

Posted by pan2 (My Page) on

I have a new redwood deck. It was installed ~2 weeks ago and needs to be sealed. I'm told that I should wait ~1 month for it to fully dry out, but I'm in the CA bay area and the rainy season will be starting here soon. Should I try to seal it right away before the rain starts, or wait for the rain and subsequently for everything to dry out? Any advice is welcomed.

RE: timing for sealing redwood deck

Where is Cali do you live? I live in the east bay/bay area and any deck I were to install 2 weeks ago, given the weather I have, would be dry enough.
