You want your deck material to last as long as possible, and the best way to safeguard your deck is to stain it regularly. Staining your deck not only highlights the wood grain and improves its overall appearance but also extends its lifespan by preventing rot and insect infestation. Deck staining also keeps the wood from absorbing moisture, which can cause costly damage if it freezes.

Numerous deck stain colors can be used to complement the appearance of treated wood. All decks can be stained, whether they are pressure treated or have previously been stained. There are various color options available, ranging from natural-looking clear wood stains to bold solid colors.

To stain or to paint a deck?

Stain is typically less expensive to purchase than paint. It is easier to apply stain and re-coat surfaces that require touch-ups. Because you don’t always need to prime surfaces before applying stain, it’s faster than painting. It also usually only requires one coat. Stain enhances rather than conceals wood surfaces. Stains provide a more rugged appearance, which is ideal if you want to achieve a natural look. Paint is prone to peeling, cracking, and flaking, whereas stain is more chip resistant.

How long does deck staining last?

While your deck stain will only last a few years with complete protection, you can extend its life by applying another coat. However, after four years, you should remove the old stain and reapply two fresh coats of stain to your deck. This will help revitalize the wood, restore the shine to your deck, and protect the wood from weather damage.

Many homeowners wonder, “How often should I stain my deck?” A deck should be stained every two to three years to keep it looking good and extend the wood’s life. Other indications that your deck requires staining include:

  • Mold or mildew has grown on the deck.
  • Water soaks into the deck boards and no longer beads up on the surface.
  • The stain color is fading.

Best Time to Stain A Deck

Wood stains will not adhere well to damp wood and may crack or peel. When it hasn’t rained in several days, and the forecast calls for at least two days of dry weather between 50° F and 90° F, apply stain to dry wood. Low to average humidity speeds up drying. Direct sunlight staining can also be an issue. The stain will dry too quickly before the wood can absorb it.

It is best to stain your deck during a season with mild temperatures. When staining your deck, extreme heat or sun can be detrimental. Direct sunlight can cause the deck to dry too quickly, leaving watermarks. Make a plan to stain your deck if the weather forecast predicts no rain and temperatures below 80 or 85 degrees Fahrenheit. This allows the weather to work with you rather than against you.
