We are finishing a cedar screened in porch in Atlanta,GA. Rough cedar for vertical posts and smooth cedar on the floor and sides.
Should we stain now? or wait till spring? What is the proper temp. range to stain.
should we sand the floors prior to staining?
Do we need to let smooth cedar age before staining? what about rough cedar?
New wood should season outside after building for at least a few months so best to wait until Spring. For the prep you should use the Restore A Deck Kit and alight pressure washing or scrubbing.
