Staining Your Pressure Treated Deck
You can choose from a number of stains and sealants, depending on your desired look and budget. With proper surface preparation, you can extend the life of your deck for many years to come.
- Oil-based stains penetrate deep into the wood grain and offer good coverage while resisting mildew and UV damage.
- Water-based stains use a high-pressure water machine to inject the chemicals into the wood, providing vibrant, long-lasting colours with less odour but will need to be reapplied more often than oil-based products.
- Semi-transparent stains allow some of the wood’s natural beauty to show through while offering protection from mildew and UV damage.
- Solid colour stains completely cover any imperfections in your decking boards but require more maintenance than semi-transparent stains.
- Clear sealants protect your deck from the elements but do not provide any colour or tone to the existing wood grain.

Frequently Asked Questions

The lifespan of a pressure treated wood deck can vary depending on the type of wood and the amount of maintenance it receives.
