Deck Stain Colors For Pressure-Treated Wood

Q: My deck is made of pressure-treated lumber but I want to add a bit of color – what stain colors look good on treated pine?

A: Pressure-treated wood is often left as-is without being coated in a gorgeous deck stain color because many home-owners think you can’t use coating on top of the wood treatment. Luckily, that isn't correct. As long as you choose stains that complement the pressure-treated look, you have a world of colors to choose from. Newer decks built with pressure-treated lumber should choose a light-colored wood stain because once you go dark with stain you cannot go back. Older decks, however, should choose something with a little bit more of a punch of color to help hide imperfections. Below are some great stain colors for pressure-treated decks.
