Deck Staining

1885 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Deckcareguy
I had a new deck put in last year, composite decking and rails, with wood pickets. I want to use a solid stain on the wood, without staining the composite decking. Using a paint brush would be the best option....albeit it very tedious. Any products to protect the composite material so that I could use my spray gun, or is should I be looking at other options for staining the wood.

Brushing is slow and tedious, but is the best way. Spraying requires lots of masking of things that you don't want stained, and clean up is usually longer. And if it a bit windy that stain could carry much farther than you might expect, to the neighbors house or car, for example.
