First staining of PT deck.


Evening all. I posted some photos of the deck I built off the back of the house and around an above ground pool. I have let it season as I was instructed by the 'Big box store' and it grayed pretty quick. Anyway, last weekend I cleaned it and it looks new again (or almost) and now I need to stain it. I have been reading everything I could find here and have learned a great deal. My issue is this time of year the weather here in Louisville KY tends to be a bit wet every 10 days or so. How many dry days do I need before applying stain? I plan on using an oil base stain. I'm still a working stiff, so weekends are my option. Thanks in advance.

That is a beautiful deck.Most all stain manufactures recommend 3 days in between washing or rain and staining.I don't push it I always give them three dry days before I stain.

Thanks for the tip and kind words. I'm my own worst enemy, I have a very hard time finding 'good enough' when building anything. I put it together with only deck screws. Not a nail anywhere. Which came in very handy twice. I needed to get under it right next to the house once and it was nice being able to back the screws out and lay the deck boards aside.

That's a lot of screws but definitely the way to go.Which stain are you using? I'm a fan of Deckscapes from SW myself.
