The weather is still beautiful in the Sacramento area, granting area residents a few extra weeks of weekend projects and winter prep. And if staining the deck slipped by you this past spring, there’s some good news. Most professionals agree that fall is one of the top two times to care for this much-used home amenity (late spring is the other).
Harsh weather, including wind, rain, and ice takes its toll on exposed wood, particularly after a long, hot summer. A fresh staining helps improve the appearance while protecting and furthering the life of the materials.
Why late spring and fall? The staining requires a two to four-day window of no rain and temperatures typically below 85 degrees.
