‘When Can I Stain My 20-Year-Old Deck?’

Here’s a question from our 08/03/2019 Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Donna in Missouri says, “My deck is 20 years old and still holding up very strongly; however, the time has come to do some cleaning and staining.

“In the past, we have used a tinted stain/sealer and then the last time we had a thorough cleaning done, which has now been a few years back.

“I have recently cleaned my deck with Wet and Forget and am very impressed. I was just wondering when would be a good time to apply a tinted stain to the deck, or should I just leave it natural?

“I live in the south-central region of Missouri, so right now we are experiencing a lot of rain and humidity with temps in the 90s.

“By this fall, I would like to stain the deck. Any advice would be much appreciated.”

We tell Donna to lightly sand the surface and go with a semi-transparent stain.
