Get the highest quality results from your deck or porch staining project by following these guidelines:

  1. Before applying stain, make sure your deck has been cleaned properly. Sprinkle some water on the deck. If the droplets sink in, the wood is ready to be stained.
  2. Working with the wood grain, apply an even coat of stain using a 4-inch brush. If available, you may also use a roller to first apply the stain, then work it into the wood with your brush.
  3. For best results, avoid staining at midday or in direct sunlight. If a second coat is required, wait 4 hours between applications.
  4. Depending on temperature and humidity, allow 24 – 48 hours of dry time before using your beautifully restored deck or porch.
