I have cleaned my deck and was planning on staining it. My problem is the weather is calling for rain everyday for the next 2 weeks. How long will my deck be ok without stain?
Most stains manufacturers recommend a moisture content that measures less than 18-15%, bellow that you are safe to stain. Usually 2 days with no rain is enough.
If you want to be sure, you can always buy a wood moisture meter, you can find some cheap ones for around 25$ at your local hardware store or on Amazon.
If you are concerned about the deck being unprotected from the rain, then you might consider covering it with a tarp to keep it dry. An added bonus is when the weather turns back you won't need to wait for it to dry before applying the stain (but I would recommend checking the moisture content as well)
