I have a new 2 month old post and beam exposed pine roof patio and want to stain it but am concerned about blotching and wondering if a pre stain conditioner should be used.

Pre-stain conditioners do not work with many penetrating stains. Do not use them. Prep well and use a stain like the Defy Extreme or TWP stains.
