If you have a wood deck, at some point, you will have to stain and seal it. Staining your deck allows it to withstand the elements such as severe weather, foot traffic, and scuffing from heavy furniture.
Before you begin, make sure you plan ahead. Ensure there’s no rain in the forecast or excessive pollen levels that create an ideal environment for mold to grow. Please note that instructions for staining and sealing a deck will vary from product to product, so read the manufacturer instructions for the best results. Prep is key to the longevity of a deck stain so make sure to prep accordingly by cleaning and or stripping the deck surface. Always neutralize with a wood deck brightener if using a stain stripper or deck cleaner. This will ensure the wood is left in the proper pH balance prior to applying your deck stain coating.
