Best deck stain for porch ceiling?
The best deck stain for a porch ceiling is the same semi-penetrating deck stain you choose for the rest of the wood in the covered porch. Semi-transparent deck stains soak into the wood to offer a level of protection. TWP, Restore-A-Deck, and Armstrong Clark are the best semi-transparent deck stains for porch ceilings.
Do I need to stain a porch ceiling?
Even though the ceiling does not get sun damage like a deck or fence, the ceiling can still benefit from the protection against moisture that the semi-transparent deck stain provides. Staining the porch ceiling at the same time as the rest of the deck makes it easy to match the wood throughout.
