We just had a new deck put on our home about 5 weeks ago..today we went to
Home Depot to get some stain for the deck..the salesman told me not to stain
the deck (new treated lunber for) at least 6 months..does anyone have any
opinion on when a new deck should be treated with waterproffing or
stain..Please let me know ASAP..Thanks..john
It usualy comes very wet from the pressure treating and being stacked
tight . you just need to dry it down so stain absorbes better. How long
depends on your weather, exposure and how wet it came . Consumer
Reports rated stain and should cover that question. At least 2 weeks .
But in rain and shade with wet wood ?
