Answer: 
Give it one year or less if the lumber was previously dried. This will allow the moisture content to evaporate and helps rid the wood of the mill glaze. You will still need to clean the deck to remove dirt and mill glaze before staining. I've bought press treated lumber and put it in storage for a year or two to allow it to dry. The boards that warp really bad, I return. Pressure treated wood is the Read More
Give it one year or less if the lumber was previously dried. This will allow the moisture content to evaporate and helps rid the wood of the mill glaze. You will still need to clean the deck to remove dirt and mill glaze before staining. I've bought press treated lumber and put it in storage for a year or two to allow it to dry. The boards that warp really bad, I return. Pressure treated wood is the least expensive, not as ascetically pleasing, and prone to warping compared to cedar, redwood, and engineered decking (i.e. Trex). Read Less

Answer: 
I would not apply it if there is old stain on your deck. If the old stain doesn't come off with a deck cleaner then you need to sand it off. Applying new stain over a different brand of old stain can cause problems. I found this out the hard way. The new stain might not be able to penetrate the wood in places where there is old stain. This can cause cracks, peeling, flaking and other issues. The wood Read More

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is my favorite outdoor finish. I use it on all my outdoor furniture. Very quick delivery. Application is goof proof, my 11 year old grandson can apply this finish to my products. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ready Seal I have tried many stains over the years and have never had a stain that is so easy to use. It was easy to apply with a brush, roller or sprayer. It's easy to clean brushes with water and dishwashing liquid. It takes about two days to dry to walk on just like the directions say. I have a large deck around the pool15x30 so it took 10 gallans to cover with two coats. We used the pecan color and it's a little dark but looks great. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT oil stain for deck! Iet's a oil base stain that did the job. It make the water bead up. July 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Solution for Keeping Your Wood Deck Like New This stain could not be easier to apply and reapply through the years. I've been using it for 10 years and my deck still looks new. Tip: for application on the deck surface, buy a deck mop and bucket. By far the fastest method to apply. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is the BEST stain in the world. I have a 1475 sq. ft of combined decking. I initially had stained it with Behr Premium Solid Color Wood Stain and Sealer..Dark Cordovan Brown. I prepared deck as recommended and spent over $500.00 in this stain. It turned beautiful but completely popped up within seven months. Contacted Behr and argued for months with them. Obviously their 20 year guarantee was not upheld. We power washed entire deck to get remaining stain off. Cleaned deck with Clorox and belt sanded. Then purchase this AWESOME Ready Seal Dark Walnut oil based stain. By far the BEST stain I have ever worked with. Went on like a charm. Low fumes. It dried in less than an hour and we applied the second coat within two hours of applying first coat. Loved the concept that you never have to strip deck to apply new Ready Seal Stain every two or three years and that it could rain on the deck within 15 minutes of application. I watched their videos and read their product previews. Easy application directions. We chose to apply stain with a brush rather than roller or sprayer. Best oil-based stain in the world. You MUST try it. I will NEVER...NEVER used latex stain ever again..thanks to Ready Seal July 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Went on like a dream My husband stained our entire 16x18 deck, spindles and all in 3 hours. It looks fabulous! July 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simplest, Easiest Stain I have ever used !! Simplest, Easiest Stain I have ever used. So easy to apply, so easy to Clean up Color soaks In evenly , reaches color in 5-7 days. Coverage was not quite as much as stated. I did not get 25 sq. ft per gallon. The fence is 7 years old and had been previously stained and sealed with Behr (don't recommend that one). Preparation using power washer to remove any remaining stain/sealer, Sprayed with 50% bleach and water mixture to remove any remaining grey coloring. Stained using $20 Home and Deck pump sprayer from home Depot. Easy to start and stop across multiple days. Purchased online and had at my door in 2-3 days! Highly Recommending this product !! We used the Dark Walnut. September 8, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very Good product, but expensive. Very good product; however if the wood fence is old it will take enough stain that after you are done you may wonder if it would have been a better idea to replace the fence. It cost a good % of replacement just to stain the old one. May 31, 2016
