    Brand new deck, #1 board on the floor and railings. After the deck is done, (it was installed one month ago in a very hot NC. beach sun) and we were wondering when we can start staining. The wood is already starting to split.

      John, typically we recommend a few months for the wood to dry out but that can vary. In your case it may be ready now.

    We put original stain on new deck one year ago. For a maintenance coat do we need to clean and brighten for prep?

      Steve, if you want to lighten the wood, you can use the Wood Brightener, but otherwise, just make sure the wood is clean and you’re good to put a maintenance coat on.
