Too late (cold weather) to stain. What to do?
Newbie here and new home owner. Sorry if I'm asking a question that's already been asked.
Previous owner painted the deck and paint is peeling etc. At least a third of the paint is gone. Wood appears to be untreated. Wanted to stain, but life got ahead of me and now it's too late. Only have a few days left where temps will be above 50 degrees and that's only for a few hours.
What's the best course of action for the winter? Slap on a cheap paint? Cover with tarp? Just leave it and deal with the consequences in the spring? Other?
Thank you in advance.
