The best time to stain your deck is either the spring or the fall. If you stain your deck in the summer, make sure you do it out of direct sunlight. Applying a deck stain in direct sun will cause the stain to dry too quickly and can result in premature stain failure. In the summer, stain your deck in the morning or evening so the deck surface isn’t too hot. Remember, the surface temperature of the deck can be much hotter than the air temperature. Also, make sure there’s no chance of rain so your hard work doesn’t get washed away.
