Recently I added on to an existing deck. The old deck is stained a dark brown. The new deck is made of pressure treated lumber. I was told I have to wait a year before staining the new deck. It does not match at all, so I would like to change its appearance. What can I do?
The best thing to do would be to remove the finish from the old portion of the deck and re-stain the entire deck with the same finish.
