How long should you wait before staining a new deck?
Pressure-treated wood typically has a lot of moisture, and you’ll need to wait until your deck is dry before applying a stain. This may take a couple of weeks. The weather and climate in your local area will also dictate when you should stain your deck. When in doubt, ask a local deck staining professional to inspect your deck and confirm if now is the right time to apply a stain.
