Some of our greatest memories happen on our decks. All of the great barbecues and parties hosted on your decks are as good as life gets. With all of your friends and families coming, you want your deck to impress. The easiest way to dazzle your friends and family is to apply a nice stain to your Maryland deck and your deck railing.
The Perfect Temperature
Most deck stains cannot be applied in temperatures below 50 degrees or above 90 degrees. This usually rules out summer and winter as optimal times to apply the stain, but makes the cooler months of fall the perfect time. Spring is another good time, but most people are busy with maintaining their lawn in the spring.
You Need Dry Weather
When looking to stain your deck, you’ll need to keep an eye on the weather because you typically need at least a 2 to 3-day window of dry weather to clean, dry, and apply the stain. You may need even more time depending on the size of your deck. In Maryland, fall is one of the drier seasons and for this reason, is a perfect time to apply stain to your Maryland deck and deck railing.
Best to Perform Deck Maintenance in the “In-Between” Seasons
For most regions, the months of summer and winter are the harshest and bring with them the most extreme weather, and the weather that most damages your deck. This is why it’s so important to perform maintenance during fall and spring. By taking preventative measures like staining your deck in fall, you can get it ready for the coming harsh winter months.
