New PT Deck

I have a new pressure treated deck installed. I want to know how long should I wait to stain and seal this new deck.

Re: New PT Deck

I was told to wait 12 months to let the wood thoroughly dry out.

Re: New PT Deck

I had asked the same Question at our local Home Improvement Store. I was told it needs to be washed and let it dry a week... I am leary still..Any other thoughts...I have a 9 year old wood fence, what is needed...Sorry to add to this Post!

Re: New PT Deck

When they make pressure treated lumber they under high pressure inject a wood preservative. It needs to dry out before you stain I was told 12 months also.
