Will Deck Stain Freeze? 5/5 (1)

Will a Deck Stain Freeze in Winter?

Yes. Does not matter if water or oil-based. If you leave your deck stain in a garage or shed where temps can fall below freezing, there is a very good chance your stain will be ruined. Signs that your deck stain has gone bad are excessive thickening, jelling/clumping of the deck stain, or skinning on the top portion.

When storing your stain, make sure to 100% close the lid or top so there is not any evaporation. Store the excess stain in a temperature-controlled room but away from any heat such as furnaces or water heaters.
