Deck board shrinkage / gap


You got some wrong info there, sunlight breaks down the wood fibers that hold the stain/finish; http://www.deckmagazine.com/finishes...ood-decks.aspx

2 weeks max.; http://www.inspectapedia.com/BestPra...s_Exterior.htm

Depends on the stain brand, they vary but nothing 6 months later; 5 days dry weather; http://www.cabotstain.com/products/p...od-Primer.html

ASAP; http://www.paintsource.net/pages/sol...ood_shrink.htm

After the "water bead test"; http://www.sherwin-williams.com/do_i.../staining_faq/

Did you search your wood brand web-site? Eg.; http://www.greatsouthernwood.com/products/buildingtips

Quite a few links, I post them about twice a year on here... en mass, lol.
