- Working with the wood grain, put or spread an even coat of stain with the help of a 4-inch brush. If available, you can also use a roller in order to first apply the stain, before working it into the wood with your brush.
- In order to get the best results, prevent staining in the middle of the day or in direct sunlight. If a second coat is needed, then you have to wait for 4 hours betwixt applications.

Staining Old & Porous Exterior Concrete Deck
- Firstly, it is always important to clean your deck surface completely and get rid of any grease or contaminants that could stand in the way of the adhesion.
- In order to be absolutely certain that there is not a sealer on the concrete, simply pour in some water on it in multiple areas.
- If in case the water sinks in, then this is the sign that there is not a sealer on the concrete. Immediately after cleaning the deck & allowing it to dry, then apply stain on it.
- If in case the water droplet is noticeable on the deck, then it indicates that there is a sealer present and you will need to get rid of it quickly. If you didn't remove the sealer quickly, then your new stain, sealer, or coating is unlikely to adhere.
Can I Use Bleach To Clean A Deck?

It is highly recommended to use the SuperDeck® line of cleaners. The type of cleaning needed is totally dependent on which SuperDeck® cleaner you use. As always, go through the application instructions carefully.
