How to Paint Pressure-Treated Wood

Submitted By

I have a 2 year old porch constructed from pressure treated lumber. Tom recently talked about using oil-based solid stains for fences and discussed his own success with this type of product (it lasting 15 years on his fence!)

Can I use an oil-based solid stain for my porch and will I have to do any special prep work because it is pressure treated?

Tom, can you share what type of stain you used on your fence or is it proprietary (LoL)?

Thanks for your help, I love the show.
