Woods like cherry, pine and birch can become blotchy and unattractive when stained, unless you use a sealer before staining. After the test board dries, examine the results in different light and locations to see which amount of stain gives the most appealing results. There's a myth that wood should "weather" untreated for several months before being treated. Solid color stain will help extend the life of an older deck that is starting to crack and check. Verify that the sealer has a few key properties: 1) waterproofs, 2) stops the growth of mold, mildew and fungi, 3) protects the wood from wood-destroying insects.


Pressure-treated wood may contain arsenic, so EXTREME caution should be used when sanding it. A deck that does not get a lot of sunlight is more likely to have mildew staining and green moss. The sealant may drip between the decking boards, so use tarps beneath the deck to avoid staining a cement pad. If the deck is near a chlorinated swimming pool, check your selection of stains and oils because the chlorine vapors can cause some oils to become opaque.
Water based sealers tend to stay on the surface where oil based are quickly absorbed into the wood.


Apply one coat of solid stain, let the deck weather for a year and then apply another coat.
If the water is absorbed into the wood it has little or no seal and will decay unless treated.
Thompson's Water Seal Advanced Wood Protectors can be applied to damp lumber, so it's possible to clean and waterproof your deck in one day.
