The Deck Store has been helping home owners, business owners, and professional contractors better understand deck and patio construction for decades. We hope to expand the reach of that knowledge through our blog.
Every couple of years deck owners must add the task of staining the deck to their project list. Usually, this only takes a couple of hours to do and is quite a simple task, but there are tons of questions out there when it comes to this project. You probably have heard to do it in cloudy, cool weather, thicker coats last longer, and your new deck needs to sit for a couple of months before applying the stain. Are these true? Or myths that have been shared among others for years? Below you’ll find the most common questions we are asked and what the answers are to each one.
This is a guest post from LBM Journal:
It can be a challenge when someone comes into your store asking about products and trends. If you want to make the sale, you certainly want to be as knowledgeable as you can. They might present you with questions such as, “What are the most popular colors?” “What else can I do to enhance my outdoor living space?” and “What are the best products to use for what type of deck I'm looking to build?” The questions are endless, and that's why you've got to be prepared to answer questions about the latest trends for the current season.
