How To Stain a Deck

For detailed help on your exterior stain projects, see our how-to section

Use the Proper Tools
Best results are achieved when you use the recommended tools.
  • For best results, a pad applicator is recommended over large areas.
  • Use a nylon/polyester brush for areas requiring more accuracy.
  • Use ¾″ nap or longer when appropriate.
  • A high quality pump sprayer with a variable tip or an airless sprayer with a .015 - .019″ tip may be used.
Preparation Requirement
Before beginning your project, make sure to clean your surface. For best results, apply the second coat thinner than the first. Proper surface preparation is the key to attaining a beautiful appearance and achieving long lasting durability.
