Staining Pressure Treated Deck Framing
Written by Todd Fratzel.
Our deck out back was framed with pressure treated lumber. We used cambara decking for the surface and it’s treated with Penofin sealer. In order to get the pressure treated to look more like the stained cambara decking I bought some Cabot’s deck stain in the “red wood” color. As you can see in the photos it stained the pressure treated really well. One word of caution, most stain manufacturers say to wait 6 months to a year after you buy the pressure treated lumber in order for it to dry out. I did wait a year and it stained beautifully.
