Finishing PT wood


I'm looking for some input. I have always considered, and have found that most say that you should wait 60-90 days or more before you finish this material. I have found a Pittsburgh Paint product called "SunProof deck,fence, and siding stain" that states in the can label, and verified on their web-site, that you should stain new wood as soon as possible, and not wait. In fact, they claim that deterioation starts immediately upon exposure to the elements if you do not.
Does anyone have any experience with this product?

I have not used that product although I DO like to get something on PT wood ASAP. It begins to crack and warp in the harsh UV rays if you wait a year like many people suggest.

Finishing PT wood


You should always wait 60 - 90 days as the wood is just too wet to accept any kind of finish.

Depending on how wet it is, you may have to wait more like 6 months to a year.....

Finishing PT wood


I really do appreciate the responses, however, I'm specifically looking for input as to the specific Pittsburgh product I listed. As I stated in my opening comments, I, like most others, have been operating on the premise that you MUST wait for a time prior to finish to allow the PT wood to dry. The Pittsburgh product directly refuts this, so I'm hopeing to find someone with experience using this stain, and how well did it do.

I have used the stuff quite a bit. Can you supply a link where they state that?
