    Deck staining

    Pressure treated soft pine (?) indtalled March 2016.
    With schedule and now weather, only option is to dry brush and stain.
    Looking at semi transparent or even semisolid oil based. I'm not set on anything special. Just wondering if I should wait until spring instead, when I can properly pressure wash and use wood cleaner or brightener and then stain. Or if it is better to just throw a stain on it now before winter.

    and one coat or two?
    Probably using Defy

    Question:
    Since there is no time to pressure wash, use brightener and clean the wood, is it worth treating now or just wait until spring?

    doc,
    I would wait till spring and prep with power washer. I used semi solid water base stain from Sherwin Williams Super Deck with Duckback technology.

    I applied spring 2015 looks good and still beading water.

    I only buy Sherwin Williams when they have a sale.

    I researched found good reviews and have been pleased with application and wear.

    Good advice, and same as me. They seem to have a sale between 30-40% off about every 6 weeks or so. I have bought paint while on sale ahead of a project just to save the $ up front.
