apply 2nd coat of stain to deck after a few days
I hired a company to stain the deck. My deck is old so it drinks a lot of stain. They ran out of stain before finishing the 1st coat. They told me it'd be just fine to apply a 2nd coat after a few days. Is it true? Does this happen often? Or should I ask them to strip it off to start it over?Thank you for your advises in advance.

wouln't the 1st coat repel the 2nd coat from absorting?

What sealer was used determines the answer.
