Watch this video to find out why you should let your new deck weather before using any deck stain on it. Weathering allows the surface of the wood deck to break down and become more porous. It also allows moisture or chemicals from the pressure-treating process time to dry out. This is important because the more porous the surface of the wood is, the better the stain will absorb into the wood, and the longer the wood stain will last.
