I decided to replace the deck on my house. House is about 17 years old. Original deck framing seems to be in good condition. Since I would like to do things right, I was thinking about staining the frame of the deck to give extra protection for the years to come. On the deck self I'm thinking about using composite material.Can anybody tell me is staining of frame is right thing to do, or is there any other method of protecting the wood. Thanks for any suggestion!
